Autism App for Infants and Toddlers Available Offline
An offline version of the award winning special education app iLearnNEarn2 - Age 1-7 hits the iTunes and Google Play, effectively giving parents and teachers an opportunity to work with a large volume of ABA-based content without having to connect to the Internet.
Somerset, NJ, April 6, 2015 (Newswire.com) - “There is no disconnect, actually,” Nish Parikh, CEO, WebTeam Corporation, said, explaining that the offline program rather contributes to the bottom line of ColorsKit: Anytime. Anywhere. Together.
1. Speed and performance – By storing all the working data locally, i.e., on the device, the app works more efficiently than most other apps of similar size and scope. It also produces improved performance by getting rid of the latency bottleneck common to transmission of data over a virtual network. Faster loading time is another direct benefit of reduced latency.
To quote Parikh: “Earlier some users had to wait as the questions and activities loaded. We have addressed that area of concern in this version, and hope to get a positive evaluation of the app from our users.”
2. Flexible synchronization – While working on a single device, a user can access up-to-date information about the assigned program(s) and reports. However, when more than one device is involved, the user needs to connect to the Internet to sync data.
3. Better battery life – Offline apps consume less energy than their online counterparts, thereby ensuring efficient battery usage.
4. Ubiquitousness – “No matter whether you are traveling to a remote area or just out of network coverage, you have uninterrupted access to a varied platter of content that serves pre-schoolers with autism,” said Parikh.
5. Competitive advantage – Just in case a user already has an active data plan, iLearnNEarn2 – Age 1-7 Offline lets them bypass roaming charges even when they are not latched onto their home network.
6. Better parental control – Since a working data connection is not mandatory to access the app, parents can simply enable access restriction to make sure their kids don’t end up on any undesirable website or webpage.
