We’re very pleased to announce that Mubaloo and Hargreaves Lansdown have won the Best Finance app at the Tabby Awards for HL Live for iPad. Now in its second year, the Tabby Awards recognise the best iPad, Android and Windows tablet apps. With over 200 entries from 20 countries, 30 apps were put forward to the final.
HL Live for iPad was one of three apps to win from UK companies, along with My Talking Tom for kids game and SwiftKey Keyboard for personal productivity. HL Live for iPad was also one of the only apps to win that is only available from the UK. So that the judges could see the app in action, we had to send a video over to demonstrate the usability.
