Welcome to the 2016 Mobile Apps Showdown

OK, let’s get this straight. More than 91% of US citizens own a mobile device that runs apps. This year more than 1 billion smartphones were sold. And the average mobile device user spends more than 30 hours a month on more than two dozen apps. That’s a lot of people spending a lot of time with their noses stuck in apps.*

How are they going to find your app if their noses are stuck in others?

That’s where the Mobile Apps Showdown comes in. Now in its 7th year, it is one of the best-loved events at the International Consumer Electronics Show (CES). Based on the premise that the crowd always knows best, the contest asks a live and online audience to pick the “most likely to succeed app”. The online event starts by previewing entries in late September. Ten extraordinary members of the press weigh in on the best apps, too. The live event takes place on Jan 8th at the LVCC during CES where the ten chosen finalists get to showcase their apps in front of standing room only audience. For more detail visit our FAQ.

To enter the Mobile Apps contest simply fill out the application (*nominal fee).
For those of you who are familiar with the Wall of Apps we’ve traditionally created at CES, we’re mixing things up a bit this year. If you’re interested in showcasing your app as part of our exhibit area we’ll integrate your app into the appropriate area on the show floor.
