PointGrab's CamMe Wins "Most Innovative Mobile App" at Mobile World Congress 2014
BARCELONA, Spain --(Business Wire)--
Ltd., the global leader in advanced gesture recognition software
solutions, won the prize for the "2014 Most Innovative Mobile App" at
the Global Mobile Awards, in recognition of their popular mobile hand
gesture camera app, CamMe.
"We are happy to have our efforts recognized, confirming CamMe as a
ground-breaking example of top tier technology translated seamlessly
into an enjoyable and valuable consumer experience," said Assaf Gad, CMO
of PointGrab. "CamMe has been so well received and the app just goes to
prove that consumers want hand gesture control in their everyday lives
when it is done in a practical and useful way."
CmMe allows users to take a picture even when their phone is not in
hand (from up to 16 feet away) simply requiring the user to raise a hand
and make a fist to begin a countdown before the photo is taken. With
over 1 million downloads to date, CamMe provides an example of a very
practical integration of hand gesture technology for mobile platforms.
The Global Mobile Awards, held annually at the Mobile World Congress (News - Alert)
(MWC), acknowledges the rapidly growing importance of applications to
businesses and consumers, creating an award category that exemplifies
those who shift the collective market to the next level. CamMe was
measured alongside a multitude of diverse apps worldwide against
specific key criteria including the level of complexity of the
technology converted into simplicity for the user, quality design
coupled with a compelling experience and UI appeal.
