The Very Best iPad and Android Tablet Apps and Games: Tabby Awards Announce 2014 Winners and Users Choice Picks

New York, NY (PRWEB) August 06, 2014

The Tabby Awards, the only global competition for the best tablet apps and games, unveils the 2014 list of Tabby Awards winners, as well as the first Users Choice app list.

The 30 Winners were selected last spring by an international panel of independents judges, chaired by Christopher Cunningham, Technology director of the Huge agency in New York. Most judges were experienced app professionals. Officials from the Entertainment Consumers Association helped judge the game categories.

Overall, the judges were impressed by both the quality and variety of entrants this year, says Christopher Cunningham. The best apps take full advantage of the tablet form factor to create unique and engaging user experiences.

Users Choice have been awarded by app users. In June and July, app users and gamers voted on the site for their favorite app among panel-selected finalists in each category. Almost 100,000 votes have been received in this first public poll.

Winners and Users Choice recipients are from Belarus, Canada, the Czech Republic, Netherlands, the United Kingdom and the United States. The list includes apps from well-known publishers like CBS, Disney, Electronic Arts, Flipboard, Kobo, Morningstar, National Geographic, Nickelodeon, Rosetta Stone and Swiftkey, as well as many apps from smaller, innovative publishers.
