FOUNTAIN VALLEY, Calif., July 29, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- MEDL Mobile, Inc. (OTCBB:MEDL) – a pioneer in the creation, development, marketing and monetization of mobile apps – announced today that the "Hang w/" live video streaming platform was named a finalist in the first annual Tabby Awards for Best Social Tablet App in the world.
The Tabby Awards received submissions from more than a dozen countries including Australia, Canada, Egypt, Finland, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, New Zealand, Portugal, Singapore, Switzerland, the United Kingdom and the United States. An international jury of tablet professionals reviewed the submitted apps. The panel of judges was assembled in collaboration with the Application Developers Alliance.
The judging panel picked Hang w/ to advance to the final round from more than 150 apps. The winners of the Tabby Awards' first competition will be announced later this summer. Other nominees include Nickelodeon's "Nick Jr. Draw & Play" in the category of Family & Kids; Warner Brothers' "Lego Batman" in the category of Arcade & Action Games; and Disney's "Where's My Water?" in the category of Brain & Puzzle Games.
"As an evangelist of mobile, it's exciting to see the Tabby Awards step forward to recognize the best work being done worldwide," said Andrew Maltin, CEO. "To be a chosen as a finalist truly speaks to the global power of the Hang With platform."
The Hang w/ app enables live, real-time video to be sent from one phone to many. Anyone with an iPhone or Android device can connect instantly to hundreds, thousands, even millions of fans via live-streaming video broadcasts.
The Hang w/ platform was launched earlier this year and has been growing steadily, largely fueled by evangelism and support from the entertainment community – where top talent such as Paula Abdul, Timbaland, Kaskade, Chief Keef, Dillon Francis and even Larry King are increasingly "Hanging w/" their fans.
Also nominated for a Tabby Award in the category of Utilities & Tools was MEDL Mobile's "Tether - The Interactive Whiteboard" which allows a user to control their desktop computer remotely from an iPad tablet.
