    While it may sometimes seem like it, Mobile World Congress isn’t just about sexy new handsets. There’s a lively developer and startup scene here in Barcelona this week too. Part of that is the Mobile Premier Awards.

    This afternoon, startups and developers have been up on stage pitching their apps, and after some tough deliberation from the judges the following winners have been announced.

    Swiftkey – Smart predictive text service for Android handsets.

    Audience Award

    Cardmobili– A mobile service to manage rewards and membership cards. It allows users to carry their cards on mobile phones, collect and use rewards, and share them with friends.
