Tabby Awards Announce Winners and Users’ Choice Picks for 2015

The Tabby Awards recognizes the best tablet apps and games.

The Tabby Awards, which recognizes the best tablet apps and games, has revealed its 2015 winners and the results of its users’ choice voting. The selections were made by an independent international judging panel of app experts, led by Otto Toth, chief technology officer of The Huffington Post.

The finalists were selected from a group of over 200 app submissions, created by developers from 16 countries. The users’ choice voting also took place earlier this year, with over 100,000 votes registered during the voting period.

Toth commented in a statement:

The competition for this year’s Tabby Awards was fierce. The best entries were high quality creative apps that utilized the capabilities and advantages of the tablet size, and those which created an entertaining and engaging user experience for all demographics.

The Tabby Awards holds a separate competition, the Tabby Awards /Business, for business and professional apps. This year’s competition will accept submissions through July 10, 2015.
