Kabbee, London’s leading minicab comparison and booking app was awarded Best App or App Startup at The UK Mobile and App Design Awards held at BOXPARK, Shoreditch last night.
The minicab app beat over 160 entrants to be named as both the marketplace and judges’ favorite. As well as winning one of the top awards Kabbee was also nominated as a finalist for the Travel and Tourism award for offering such a wide range of options and exceeding consumer expectations.
The app, which is now the only minicab app to be available across all mobile platforms, was judged on the overall user experience and the innovative features that are keeping Kabbee one step ahead of its competitors.
The awards were presented by design100 CEO and founder Mark Bergin as part of London Tech Week. Mark comments:
“Kabbee represents the power of ‘in the moment’ utility. It provides the shortest path between need and commerce. It’s great to see minicabs showing the way to mobile enabled commerce.”
Justin Peters, Kabbee CEO and Founder commented on the win: “Cutting-edge design is at the core of our product, so it’s really fantastic to win this award. We’ve been truly overwhelmed by the support we have received from both the consumers and the judges.
“The Kabbee app will continue to use leading design and innovation to strengthen London’s transport system, by ‘making minicabs mighty’. Our recent launch on Windows Phone 8 should put us in the running to win more design awards in the near future.”
