The Mobile Apps Showdown at the 2013 International CES was a French affair this year. For the online vote, the MyScript Calculator by Vision Objects (Nantes, France) dominated from the start, and was the winner by a large margin. In the live event, Vision Objects gave the first demo, and they had the packed crowd gasping as the handwriting recognition in the calculator analyzed increasingly complex equations. It may sound like a demo of grass growing, but in fact Vision Objects gave one of the all-time best demos at Mobile Apps.

 The Mobile Apps Showdown live event was hosted by Jon Hein and Gary “Baba Booey” Dell’Abate, co-hosts of The Wrap Up Show on the Howard Stern channels on SiriusXM Radio. They brought their inimitable wit and knowledge of all things geek to the festivities.

 After the Vision Objects demo at the top of the show, the table was set, and the remaining nine companies, all with strong products, tried to best them. We had Elvis, we had “Jay Leno” exposed by NIVPAT’s amazing pattern recognition, we had a Swype demo in which the presenter was dressed as a huge foam finger, we had push ups and sit ups (Runtastic) and dating (iMeet) and travel (Sales Navigator) and several attempts at the iconic Brooklyn accent. FindIt, another early stage startup, showed their game. The SecuraTrac demo featured a fall that was detected and assisted remotely. MindMeld showed an amazing app that lets you link to the real world from a conversation. Unified Intents, a two-person start-up, showed an app that lets you use your android phone as a remote control. Great products and demos, but none topped Vision Objects, and In the live voting MyScript Calculator won handily. This is the first time in either Last Gadget Standing or Mobile Apps Showdown that a company has won both the online and live voting. Congrats to Vision Objects.

The Mobile Apps Showdown is a fast-paced contest where you're asked to weigh in on the apps you think have what it takes to make it. For the months leading up to the 2013 CES, we'll be presenting the contestants to you. You can try the apps, watch demos, make your feelings known, and ultimately vote on a winner. We're platform agnostic, so if it's mobile, it's in the competition.


The top ten apps will join us at 2014 CES for an action packed event hosted by Jon Hein and Gary Dell'Abate from the Howard Stern Wrap Up Show.


Robin Raskin, creator of the Mobile Apps Showdown, will be there to emcee events.


By the end of this year, nearly 50 billion apps will have been downloaded. Only you know which ones are the keepers.
