Pocket Prep, the world’s leading mobile learning platform, wins EdTech Digest's 2016 Cool Tool Award.

Our goal was to make our apps affordable so that self-improvement wasn’t such a lofty undertaking.

EdTech Digest recently announced the winners of its highly-coveted 2016 Cool Tool Awards, among the recipients is Seattle-based Pocket Prep, the world’s leading mobile learning platform. The EdTech Digest Awards Program recognizes educators and education-driven ventures for their outstanding contributions to transforming education through technology focused on enriching the lives of learners everywhere.

Recognizing the “best and brightest in edtech,” the annual awards program highlights and celebrates the most effective products and the most innovative and inspiring people. EdTech Digest selected Pocket Prep for its affordable, convenient and engaging exam prep applications.

Pocket Prep was awarded the top seat among a group of nine other finalists in the middle and high school category, which highlights several of Pocket Prep’s apps including an award-winning GED app, and apps for the ACT and SAT college entrance exams. Founded in 2011 by Peter Murphy and Ken Gillette, Pocket Prep has become the modern answer to assisting students and professionals with passing integral entrance exams and earning essential industry credentials.

“Years ago, while studying for the APICS CPIM certification, Ken and I sat around our tiny shared office at Lockheed Martin baffled at the costs of bettering one’s professional life. In the regimented environment of a Fortune 500 company, we didn’t think the hefty personal investment would really pay off in terms of promotions and raises in the long run,” shares CEO and Co-Founder Peter Murphy. “Given the mounting expenses for the CPIM credential, we decided to develop apps that would help people better prepare for high-stakes exams. Our goal was to make our apps affordable so that self-improvement wasn’t such a lofty undertaking.”

Today, Pocket Prep has the highest-rated mobile learning apps in both the iTunes App Store and Android Google Play. Students can study anywhere, anytime by choosing from a myriad of disciplines among the more than 85 exam prep apps.
