Ready4 Revolutionizes Mobile Learning and Surpasses More Than One Million Student Downloads

Ready4, the company revolutionizing mobile learning through personal and effective solutions, today announced that it has surpassed more than 1.2 million downloads of its free apps. Ready4, formerly known as LTG Exam Prep, offers seven apps that completely reinvent the way students prepare for the GMAT, SAT, GRE and other exams, including finding the ideal school or program. Ready4 is celebrating this major milestone by offering a $5,000 scholarship to one of its users.

Traditional test preparation approaches are more than 70 years old, and are still trapped in textbooks, paper flashcards and expensive courses. Existing mobile options move paper to digital, failing to recognize the unique demands of on-the-go mobile learning in smaller time units. Ready4 has addressed this gap by not only moving existing content to mobile, but by developing an entirely new learning experience that breaks long, grueling sessions into productive bursts that are available and approachable no matter what a person’s goals are, how much time they can devote to prep or how much they can afford to pay.

Today’s million-download milestone marks the latest in a series of notable achievements for the MIT-founded ed-tech company, most notably:

  • The company has also received more than 10,000 5-star reviews in the Apple iTunes and Google Play stores
  • Ready4 GMAT and Ready4 GRE apps were recently featured by the Apple iTunes store in the new and notable education category.

Students Can Download Ready4 GMAT or Ready4 GRE for an Opportunity at a $5,000 Scholarship
To celebrate its million downloads and encourage even more students to join the readiness revolution, Ready4 will be rewarding one of its users with a $5,000 scholarship to the school of their choice. A winner will be selected on September 30, 2016. Starting in October, Ready4 will give away one $1,000 scholarship every month to further support students on their educational journeys.

To enter, users must download the Ready4 GMAT or Ready4 GRE app in the Apple iTunes or Google Play store, click on the “Scholarship” icon on the main home page and provide their phone number within the Ready4 app. Users of previous LTG Exam Prep apps are eligible by updating to the latest version of their preferred Ready4 app.

“A million downloads is just the beginning of the readiness revolution. Our mission is to assure that a generation is ready, willing and able to take on the challenges and opportunities of the 21st century economy,” said Elad Shoushan, founder and CEO, Ready4. “It is tremendously rewarding to deliver on that promise not only without the burden of heavy books or costly solutions, but also with a scholarship that makes it easier for a student to afford a school we helped them gain access to.”

Ready4 is focused on providing users with the most comprehensive mobile learning experience. All of Ready4’s mobile learning apps are powered by an adaptive learning capability that understands and accounts for a user’s strengths, weaknesses and test-taking quirks to provide a truly personalized experience design, providing the kind of practice, sequencing, repetition and question selection required for maximum effectiveness. Driven by big data and proprietary algorithms, Ready4 connects its insights into users’ target programs with the recruiting requirements of universities, helping both students and schools find the right match.
