Zookal is an instant hit!
The app, which was launched in our country recently has already registered over 20K downloads in the first few weeks during its release. There was even a time where it ranked 2nd in the education app ranking in the iOS App store. At Google Play, it is also included in the most downloaded apps for Android devices.
“We are very proud to have made an impact in the first two week of launch. We have been overwhelmed with positive feedback from our users and we are working very diligently to make improvements to the product. Buying books and going to reviewer centers are not feasible for every single family, so if we can help some families access resources that were previously unavailable to them, then we will strive to do so on as big a scale as possible,” said Jon Tse, Co-Founder, Zookal.
"With the app, we hope to contribute towards attaining the global development goals in education particularly in the Philippines, and increase the chances of Filipinos who cannot afford reviewer services to pass entrance exams and other tests that would help improve their lives for the long term," added Tse.
The app is now ready for download for FREE at Google Play Store and Apple App Store. Then if the app is now compatible with iOS and Android OS, it maybe directly downloaded at www.zookal.com.ph now.
