Tabby Awards

The Tabby Awards, the global competition recognizing the best tablet apps and games, has today announced the nominees for its 2015 consumer app competition. Over 200 iPad and Android apps from publishers in 16 countries entered the competition earlier this year.

An international judging panel reviewed these submissions, narrowing the field to a list of 98 nominees across 11 categories for Android apps and games and 23 categories for iPad apps and games. This year, the judging panel is chaired by Otto Toth, tech director of The Huffington Post in New York.

Toth commented on the nominees in a statement:

It is an honor to be part of the judging process for this year’s Tabby Awards. The optimized tablet app market is thriving in a major way, and it was impressive to see all the great nominations this year. The best tablet apps keep getting better!

The judges will now proceed with a final round of voting, selecting a winner in each category. Similarly, the public is also encouraged to vote on these nominees for the Tabby Awards Users’ Choice competition. Public voting is open now until June 14. Overall winners and users’ choice winners will be announced this summer.
