The Tabby Awards has announced the winners of the 2017 Mobile App Awards program.

Winning apps included Spotify, Twitter, Bitmoji, Domino’s, Venmo, Instagram, MyFitnessPal, Lyft, TripAdvisor, and Netflix.

App publishers with multiple award winners included Google, Spotify, Rosetta Stone, Adobe, Redfin, and Audible. “Indie” publishers - with Android apps like Nova Launcher and Weather Timeline - were also amongst the award winners.

“With over 5.3 million consumer (non-gaming) apps available today on Android and iOS combined, our mobile app award winners are positioned in the top 0.003% of a massive market,” commented Matt Harney, Executive Producer of the Tabby Awards.

“We had several key themes emerge at this year’s mobile app awards. ‘Iconic franchise’ apps - like MyFitnessPal, Adobe Photoshop, Waze, and GMail - continued to generate strong user engagement and reviews in 2017. The ‘subscription economy’ - through apps like Netflix, Peloton, Spotify, Audible, New York Times, and Evernote - continues to grow across the app stores. The tablet market leadership of the iPad was reflected in 30 app winners. Android’s continued momentum resulted in a record number of smartphone apps selected at this year’s event.”

With all iOS and Android apps eligible and under consideration, winners were selected based on a combination of quantitative metrics and qualitative factors.

The analytical evaluation component focused on app store user review scores submitted over the course of 2017 to measure user engagement. The qualitative component - benefiting from the Tabby Awards expertise in judging app and game awards since 2012 - focused on user interface, design, and innovation. The degree of tablet-optimization was also a key factor in the assessment of iPad and Android tablet apps.

The 2017 Mobile App Award winners are presented below by device type and operating system category:
