With nearly 4.7 million consumer (non-gaming) apps available today on Android and iOS combined, our mobile app award winners are positioned in the top 0.001% of a massive market - these are the best of the best of the best,
SAN DIEGO (PRWEB) January 17, 2019
The Tabby Awards has announced the winners of the 2018 Mobile App Awards competition.
Winning apps included Spotify, TikTok, Headspace, Waze, Rosetta Stone, Eventbrite, Twitch, and Airbnb.
App publishers with multiple award winners included Spotify, Rosetta Stone, MyFitnessPal, and Instagram. “Indie” publishers - with Android apps like Daylio and Notin - were also amongst the award winners.
“With nearly 4.7 million consumer (non-gaming) apps available today on Android and iOS combined, our mobile app award winners are positioned in the top 0.001% of a massive market - these are the best of the best of the best,” commented Paola Schaw, Executive Producer of the Tabby Awards.
“Several themes continued long-running trends at this year’s mobile app awards. ‘Iconic franchise’ apps - like Instagram, MyFitnessPal, Airbnb, Spotify, and Twitch - continued to generate strong user engagement and reviews in 2018. Just like at our 2017 app awards, the ‘subscription economy’ - through apps like Netflix, Strava, Spotify, Rosetta Stone, New York Times, and Evernote - performed well at this year’s app awards.”
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 2018 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.
