SuperProfs launches a mobile app for exam preparation

Students preparing for competitive exams like CA, CS, GATE, UPSC and IIT-JEE can now watch high quality video lectures, online and offline, of India’s Best Professors on their mobile/tablet. India’s largest online platform for exam preparation, announced the launch of a mobile app to connect India’s best professors for competitive exams with lakhs of students from across the country.

The mobile app allows students to prepare for their exams anywhere, anytime – even on very slow Internet connections. Additionally, students can download the video lectures in the app on their phone and watch them offline. This would help students in tier 2/3 towns with poor Internet connectivity in carrying out their preparation without any hassles.

Speaking about the latest innovation, Piyush Agrawal, CEO and Founder, Superprofs.com said, “The concept of mobile apps in exam preparation is still nascent in India, although with increasing smartphone penetration, the prospect to innovate in the $8 billion exam coaching market space is extensive. Superprofs Mobile app could cater to over 5 crore students in the country, who prepare for competitive exams every year”.

Data from global research and analysis firm e-marketer reported that India will surpass US in smartphone use to 200 million+ users by 2016 becoming the second largest market in world following China. India contributes to about 9.5 per cent of overall app downloads all over the world – world’s second largest contributor and this number is rapidly increasing. People have started using mobile apps for connecting with friends, grocery shopping, booking tickets etc.

It is therefore quite logical that soon students would be using these mobile apps for something as fundamental as their studies as well. More and more people in India are beginning to stress on the importance of education. This has created a surge in the market for professional course training. Global forecasts by marketsandmarkets predicts mobile learning apps to reach a market size of $37.60 billion by 2020.

“In less than 4 weeks of its launch on the Google Play Store, we have seen more than 1000+ downloads of the mobile app. Students have given excellent ratings and reviews to the app and are especially liking its capability to play videos even offline. This is helping students who are on move or have poor Internet connectivity.  As compared to traditional coaching institutes, where students end up spending a lot time in commuting or listening to monotonous lectures in a group, SuperProfs mobile app saves time for the students by allowing them to personalize their exam preparation strategy and giving them access to the best professors, at the comfort of their home. More and more students are taking the benefit of this today and we expect to cross the 10,000 downloads milestone in the next few weeks” he added.

SuperProfs is the first and the largest online platform which brings live and recorded classes of India’s Best Professors for competitive exams online, so that students can prepare for their exams, anywhere, anytime. As of date, it has more than 75,000 registered students and around 200 professors from across India, teaching courses for CA, CS, IIT-JEE, GATE and UPSC/IAS. It has developed a proprietary technology which allows HD quality video streaming at extremely low bandwidths, which means students can watch the classes even at as low as 100 Kbps network speed (typical 2G connection). SuperProfs has now brought the same disruptive technology to a native mobile app for best viewing experience.
