Google Play is the only marketplace that publishes a range of downloads for each app listed in its app store. Only four pharmacy related apps, including iPharmacy, have reached the level of “1,000,000 – 5,000,000 Installs”.
“Without a brick-and-mortar store, to support marketing to users, iPharmacy’s consumer adoption demonstrates evidence of its popularity, strong set of features and ease of use. Both the medical professional community, and consumers in general have voted with over 2.3 million selections in Apple’s app store and the Google play store that iPharmacy meets their preferences for meaningful pharmacy management information”; say Kevin Woodard, President of MedConnections. He comments further; “As an engaging tool, we believe iPharmacy’s potential is unbounded after three years’ unprecedented organic growth. Given the smartphone is continuously gaining market share and that more and more patients and caregivers utilize the smartphone as their primary communication tool.”
