Outfit7’s My Talking Tom app has scooped the award for Best iPad Game: Kids, Education & Family at the Tabby Awards.
The Tabby Awards is a global competition to find the best tablet app.
In addition to the win, My Talking Tom was voted Tabby Awards Users’ Choice favourite in two categories: Best iPad Game Kids, Education & Family and Best Android Game: Puzzle, Cards & Family, both voted for by the general public.
During June and July, app users and gamers voted on the TabbyAwards.com site for their favourite app among panel-selected finalists in each category.
Close to 100,000 votes were received in the first public poll, in which My Talking Tom competed among over 200 iPad and Android tablet apps from publishers in 20 countries.
"We are delighted that My Talking Tom has been declared a winner of the 2014 Tabby Awards," said Samo Login, CEO and co-founder at Outfit7. "There was great competition in this year’s shortlist and the fact that My Talking Tom was also selected as Tabby Awards Users’ Choice in two categories – voted for by our users – makes the accolade even more rewarding."
