The Best iPad And Android Tablet Apps Of 2015

The Tabby Awards present the best tablet apps of 2015.

Tablets provide a fundamentally different experience to people than smartphones or laptops. Your iPad has a bigger screen than your iPhone yet is more lightweight and portable than the MacBook in your bag. If you are sitting on the train and wanted to read a book on your way to work, which device are you really going to pull out?

Tablets are the tweener of the mobile device landscape. But they are indispensable for people that use them. Tablets can be the ultimate dynamic device, the “truck” of mobile devices that function both for work and play, games, media and productivity.

What app do you use on your tablet if you want to learn a new language? How about if you are trying to do your business expenses? What if you are trying to track your diet, nutrients and calories?

Really, what are the best tablet apps of 2015?

ARC has teamed up with The Tabby Awards to figure that out. The Tabby Awards are an annual contest where the best tablet apps of the year compete across categories between iPad and Android tablets looking for the best of the best. The winners of the 2015 Tabby Awards are split between nominations chosen by a select group of judges and over 100,000 votes from users across the globe.

You may want to check out Rosetta Stone for Android to learn a new language. Or perhaps Expensify on your iPad for all your receipts. Check out the FitStar Personal Trainer if you are trying to lose weight.

Also, don’t forget to nominate the best tablet and smartphone apps for business and enterprise in the new Tabby Awards business competition. The deadline for nominations is July 10th.

Check out the list of winners below and make sure to take a look at The Tabby Awards for all winners and nominees.

    There’s this awesome app called GrabPoints. In a nutshell they pay you for trying out new apps and answering a couple of surveys. I love using it because they are always active on social media giving out points and the rewards are always fair. Like just for signing up you already get $1 then if you use a friend’s invite code you get 50PTS and easy AND your friend gets points in return too! See even simply inviting people earns you money. If you ever happen to try GRABPOINTS please use my invite code: S6FMAC Hope this helps!
