Just how popular are applications for
As of summer 2016, more than 130
billion apps were downloaded from the App Store
- The App Store for iOS devices has over 8,8% educational app users. That's third place, after
games and business apps;
- Potential learners (anyone with a smartphone) measure nine of ten people globally.
With all the progress being made in this field,
it has been filled with competition. With each passing day, more ideas are being implemented, potential
market share shrinks and entry becomes more difficult, which is why it’s so important to develop your
idea right away and stay ahead of the competition. Magora is fully prepared to bring projects from the
early stages of idea growth and discussion to fully functional, monetised applications and software.
Why Are Educational Apps Such a Thriving
- Accessibility. Smartphones grant us access to information and people with the press of a
button 24/7, from any location. With a properly developed app, this is even possible without a
network connection. All of that power is portable, too, which translates into learning that can
carry from the classroom to beyond.
- Different Types of Learning. Students learn in different ways, and educational apps can
offer targeted learning for those who prefer to see, hear or do, which means a more personalised
approach and greater learning outcomes, unrestricted by classroom and scheduling restraints.
- Organisation. Lessons can be hectic. Students and even teachers may miss something during
a class, but with well-planned applications, all material and information is hardwired in,
meaning students have high expectations for what and how they will learn, a mutual
accountability that fosters education.
- Fun. Many people overlook this aspect, but learning through an application can be
gamified, as many leading educational apps have been, which means a user's experience is
engaging and there is a motivation to continue, even through otherwise difficult information.
- Go Green. One of the great benefits of digital education is its reduction in paper, so
learning through an app is great for the mind and the environment alike.
