The serbian application Taksiko, presented and defended by Mladjan Antic, gave it his best shot and convinced the audience of Nonick to choose him as The best European Mobile Application. Mladjan was proudly awarded his “txapela” of the champion.
Taksiko -the easy, fast and secure way to “call” a taxi- was claimed the best application in Europe, Trambus won the second position and Nightbits classified third. Mobitto and EdukidsApps also made it tougher to win this exciting competition.
