This week, our GPS Voice Navigation won the Best International app award at Mobile Excellence Awards 2013 (MEAs) at a gala in Los Angeles, California. The other nominees in our category were Qualcomm Life, July Systems and PostFinance.
Dubbed the “Oscars” of Mobile, the annual Mobile Excellence Awards recognize the leaders in global mobile entertainment and technology in every area of the ecosystem, including: start-ups, content providers, entertainment, apps and handsets, brands and more. Among the other awardees selected in 24 categories this year are industry giants such as Turkcell and Samsung, as well as prominent names in the entertainment industry (Electronic Arts and Dreamworks Animation SKG).
“We congratulate all the winners of the 6th Mobile Excellence Awards who demonstrated innovation, creativity and over-all growth to help better the future of the industry as a whole. This year’s winners truly deserved to be recognized as the Best of the Best in mobile entertainment and technology,” said Sarah Miller, Founder of the Mobile Excellence Awards.
The winners of 2013 Mobile Excellence Awards were determined by an undisclosed panel of judges from top-tier business and technology companies. The winning entries must score high on five key criteria: strategic Initiative, impact of technology used in the industry, creativity, ease of use and reach, and execution & proven success in the market.
Now, you may know that GPS Voice Navigation (GPSVN) has been offline for the last two months due to an issue with the map providers terms and conditions. The good news is that we now have a working solution and will resubmit this popular app perhaps as soon as today (whoa, more big news!). We will keep you posted.
Now is the time to say a big, heartfelt “Thank you!” to all the people who wrote to us with concern and requests to have GPSVN back! We have not stopped working on getting it back online and hope our efforts will soon bear fruit.
We would also like to express our appreciation to the MEAs and their founder, Sarah Miller, in particular for believing in GPSVN all along.
