Mobile Educational App Developer, gWhiz, Realizes Strong Growth in 2012
Annapolis, Maryland – 2012 was an outstanding year for gWhiz LLC. The company’s commitment to producing high quality, engaging mobile educational apps for lifelong learning paid off with strong product sales and increased market share on the iOS and Android mobile platforms. Innovations, like developing a multiplayer study-with-friends game feature for the test prep app, PrepZilla, and adding in-app access to leading publisher content in the universal flashcard app, gFlash, helped fuel gWhiz’s success in 2012.
With hundreds of popular titles incorporating highly relevant content and cutting-edge features, gWhiz has experienced significant sales growth in the last few years with a 45% increase in downloads coming in 2012 alone. Flagship mobile flashcard app, gFlash, has driven much of this growth as its popularity continues to expand in the classroom and beyond. As more apps under development come on line and new publisher partnerships are established, gWhiz is on pace to exceed 1 million downloads in 2013.
“In this day and age, learning takes place everywhere, not just inside a classroom or at a desk,” remarked Kevin Reville, gWhiz founder. “gWhiz is committed to providing students with dynamic educational applications that fit their busy lifestyles and make use of the latest in mobile technology.”
The growth factors that have spurred strong sales for gWhiz in 2012 are expected to continue in 2013. Through newly formed partnerships with market leaders such as Pearson and ETS, the company has several new educational apps currently under development. gWhiz continues to work with existing partners including McGraw-Hill, Barron’s, FLVS and Wiley Publishing to expand current offerings. Good things await in 2013.
