Feb 18, 2013 (Close-Up Media via COMTEX) --
TabTimes and the Application Developers Alliance are partnering to launch the Tabby Awards, which is accepting submissions through April 15.
According to a release, the Tabby Awards is a tablet-specific competition that recognizes the most useful and fun applications for iPad, Android and Windows 8 tablets.
"It's about time that tablets are recognized as an original and specific media platform," said TabTimes founder and CEO Patrick Pierra. "The best tablet apps are neither supersized mobile apps nor traditional websites. This is why they need their own competition, to be truly appreciated as the life-changers they have been for millions of tablet users."
"App developers have created an extraordinary range of products tailored to parents, doctors, educators, gamers and everyday consumers," said Jon Potter, President of the Application Developers Alliance. "This awards program will rightly celebrate excellence and ingenuity in the field."
The Tabby Awards competition is now open to consumer applications written for the iOS, Android, and Windows 8 operating systems. Tablet app producers may compete in 27 categories.
Confirmed judges include current and former editors of CNET, Wikia, CBS News and TIME Magazine.
Early bird submission rates apply until March 11.
TabTimes is a media company focusing on the tablet business and the Application Developers Alliance is a trade association for app developers.
