SAN FRANCISCO, Calif., May 24, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via PRWEB - Y Media Labs, a full service mobile app interactive agency, has won the coveted Webby Award for "Best Lifestyle Tablet App." Hailed by the New York Times as the "internet's highest honor," the Webby award is a leading international award recognizing excellence on the Internet. Y Media Labs' CEO Ashish Toshniwal and CTO Sumit Mehra attended the star-studded ceremony on Tuesday May 20, 2014 in New York City where they were honored with the Webby People's Voice award.
The International Academy of Digital Arts & Sciences (IADAS) recognized Y Media Lab's highly acclaimed Nom Nom Paleo App. The bestselling iPad app showcases simple, tantalizing recipes, all of which are gluten, soy, and sugar free. Recipes can be filtered by food category or specific ingredients and are approved by the Whole30® nutritional re-set program. The Nom Nom Paleo app includes over 1,800 stunning, high-resolution photos, which guide the user through every step of the cooking process.
The Wall Street Journal notes, "If brevity is the soul of wit, then The Webby Awards might be the wittiest show of all time." The Webby Awards' notorious 5-word acceptance speeches kept laughter flowing throughout the evening, each speech more clever and endearing than the last. Y Media Labs' acceptance speech, "Go mobile or go home," is a testament to a drastic industry shift towards a mobile centric market. Companies like Microsoft, Square, Facebook, and IBM have all implemented a mobile first strategy, indicating that if a company is going to survive and thrive, going mobile is fundamentally critical.
Y Media Labs' CEO Ashish Toshniwal and CTO Sumit Mehra joined Nom Nom Paleo's Michelle Tam at the 18th Annual Webby Awards. "This is a really big achievement for us. We are so proud of our team and thank the Webby Awards for this great honor," said Toshniwal.
