We're a small player, but we have quality content and we're being discovered.
Boston, MA (PRWEB) April 30, 2012
Boston-based educational mobile apps company Upward Mobility is pleased to announce it has now sold more than 50,000 Android apps for academic and professional exam preparation. Founded by MIT Sloan School of Management graduate Ted Chan, Upward Mobility provides high-quality, low-cost mobile apps for test preparation and management training as part of a broader mission to democratize educational material both at home and in developing economies. Upward Mobility has 100% money back guarantee for all Android customers.
“Android and Google Play have been great distribution channels for us. We're a small player, but we have quality content and customer service, and we're being discovered.” said Chan, who serves as Upward Mobility’s CEO.
Upward Mobility has been on the mobile apps scene since March of 2009, building a catalogue of test prep apps for professionals in technical, healthcare, and business management fields. In the past several years, Upward Mobility has success with top ranking apps in the iTunes, Android, WindowsPhone, Palm, BlackBerry, and Amazon app stores.
Nurses, doctors, computer programmers, management consultants, and other professionals have all lent their real-world expertise to the UM content-creation process. Upward Mobility also counts key academic tests such as the Advanced Placment (AP Exams) and CLEP tests as areas it serves.
“We are very proud that our process allows us to provide high-quality content for so many specialized certifications that are otherwise underrepresented in mobile test prep,” said Samantha Tanzer, Product Development and Marketing Associate at Upward Mobility.
Most Upward Mobility apps focus on providing a comprehensive bank of multiple-choice questions with detailed rationales. Available for Android phones and tablets, iPhone, iPad, Blackberry and Windows Phone, UM apps feature two distinct modes—test mode and study mode. In test mode, the user chooses a number of questions and a time limit and can review answers for accuracy at the end of the test. In study mode, the user interacts with questions at a more leisurely pace, and each question is paired with an explanation. Upward Mobility has found that this focus on simulated exams and detailed explanations enhances pass rates.
