Dallas, Tex. – May 19, 2013 – Float Mobile Learning announced today its upgraded suite of mobile learning apps would be free for a limited time throughout the ASTD 2013 International Conference & Exposition, May 19-22.
“Allowing these apps to be free during this time and performing these upgrades demonstrate Float’s commitment to the growing industry of mobile learning, and show Float’s continued support of mLearning solutions,” said Float’s managing director, Chad Udell, about the apps that have been downloaded more than 23,000 times this year. “In response to market demands, Float’s products are now available with more features requested by customers, including more languages and more fresh new content than ever before.”
The following apps have been updated:
Float Mobile Learning Primer 1.5 – The Float Mobile Learning Primer is an introductory guide to mobile learning, featuring terms, examples, book excerpts and idea starters available for iOS and Android. The Primer is now optimized for tablets and has received some content updates.
RabbleBrowser 2.7 – RabbleBrowser is a collaborative Web browser for the iPad that is great for classrooms or meeting rooms. Earlier this year, it was featured on Forbes’ list of top 10 apps to make to make your business more productive in 2013. RabbleBrowser is now available for the first time in German. It has also been localized for Italian, Spanish, French and Japanese languages.
Sandbox 1.2 – Sandbox is a Web browsing app for iOS devices (iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad) that restricts users to a whitelist of websites. Users can now enjoy Sandbox in German, Italian, Spanish, French and Japanese.
“These advanced custom-developed applications for mobile learning purposes show the way to a new world of professional development, as well as K-12 development, higher education and beyond,” Udell said. “It is clear that ‘I’m learning’ is not just you learning on a mobile device, and these applications prove just that.”
