The Bible, Safe Classroom Communication, ClassDojo, Duolingo, and PowerSchool Mobile are five of the most popular Education apps during the back to school period, according to a blog post on App Annie.
App Annie, an app market business with 15 global offices, aims to solve big data challenges.
To determine which Education apps are the most used as students go back to school, App Annie took a look at the top Education apps by weekly active users (WAU).
This metric takes into account both historical downloads and new downloads prompted by the start of the 2017 school year, App Annie said.
The top 10 homeworker helper apps were all featured by Apple apps to capitalize on the back-to-school season and heavy app-usage of millennials and Gen Z, App Annie said.
“The #2 ranking app, Remind: Safe Classroom Communication, foster a reliable communication channel among teachers, parents, and students. Communication apps are a highly saturated category, with existing user preferences that can make it a difficult market to break into. It is impressive that Remind has broken into this market through the lens of Education applications.”
More than 20 million teachers, students, and parents use Remind.
Remind is used actively in more than 70% of U.S. public schools.
Remind has at least one active teacher in 90% of U.S. Title I schools.
The future is bright for Education apps, concludes App Annie.
With advancing technologies such as Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR) and the prioritization of device manufacturers to better support these technologies, Education apps stand to gain traction.
