MONROVIA, Calif., Feb. 11, 2020 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- The 12th Annual Media Excellence Awards has nominated Stayhealthy's Color Quest AR coloring app as a finalist in the AR/VR category. Stayhealthy was also cited as among Best Technology Innovators and Leaders to Watch in 2020.
Color Quest AR, which uses patented augmented reality technology to enhance educational experiences for children about their health, is growing in popularity with over one and a half million downloads and is approaching 60 million total channel views on YouTube.
"We're proud to be nominated and to share in the prestigious and influential AR/VR category with companies like Ford and Snapchat," said Ziggy Kormandel, President of Stayhealthy. It's been really gratifying that the app has received 5 star reviews from the Educational App Store, been the number one trending education app in Google Play and the number one iPad app for education in over 24 countries. Those rankings are really meaningful, but as a company, we have always looked up to previous years' MEA nominees and winners for inspiration because the Media Excellence Awards sets the bar for what's best in mobile technology."
"Stayhealthy is the first company to combine healthcare and augmented reality to deliver personalized health benefits across a variety of platforms for both children and adults. That's why this kind of industry recognition is so important to us," stated John Collins, Stayhealthy's CEO. "It's so rewarding to see that our peers as well as our users are responding to what we are doing with Color Quest AR in addressing the global epidemic of childhood obesity. We believe that education is entertainment and the use of augmented reality in Color Quest AR is proving to be a game changer, especially in getting parents and their children to take control of their own health. We are very honored to be nominated by this acclaimed award show and excited to be in such great company as the other nominees."
