The best mobile apps for business: Announcing Tabby Awards /Business nominees for tablets and introducing first Mobby Awards /Business nominees for smartphones

While 56 Tabby Awards /Business nominees have been selected by an independent judging panel as the best business apps on tablets, 34 apps have been nominated in the new Mobby Awards /Business as the best apps on smartphones. Nominees include productivity and enterprise apps from Adobe, Bombardier, Breezes, Citrix, DocuSign, Gulfstream, Morningstar and Rosetta Stone.

The Tabby Awards /Business, the only competition for the best mobile apps for business and professionals, today announced the Nominees for 2015.

After testing over 150 apps, an international judging panel of 24 independent mobile experts selected 56 tablet-optimized apps as Tabby Awards /Business nominees. For the first time, they also selected 34 smartphone-optimized apps as Mobby Awards /Business nominees.

The panel is chaired by Carson Conant, CEO of Mediafly, a Chicago-based mobile technology company. “The innovation and creativity from this year’s participants was top notch!”, said Carson Conant. “Innovation has come through on all fronts; from broad-based productivity apps as well as from very niche, specialized enterprise apps.”
