The MPAs are considered the biggest app awards within the mobile sector and internationally has been supporting the global developer community for a decade. The jury in this X Edition decided to award the Best App Award from amongst 16 global finalists, the winning application hailing from Barcelona itself. Sharing Academy is an app that helps students offer and organise peer-on-peer tutoring with each other and was developed in Barcelona as a web based platform.
The second award of the evening, the Audience Award, has been giving to Valencia’s Schooltivity, after a trending worthy storm of public voting via Twitter.

Finally, the third winner of the night was Berlin’s Mimi Hearing , which has earned the Big Impact Award from the Appcircus team, organizers of the Mobile Premier Awards.
