My Study Rewards Chooses Motifworks for Mobile Application Development
Education Technology Company to Accelerate its Product Development, Cites Motifworks’ Experienced, Nimble Team for Project
Baltimore, MD October 23, 2013
Motifworks, a cloud and mobile solutions firm that helps companies migrate their applications and infrastructure to the cloud, announces that My Study Rewards, a Maryland-based education-focused software company, has selected Motifworks for its mobile application development needs.
The Motifworks team was selected for its ability to provide nimble and flexible application development expertise to accelerate My Study Rewards’ go-to-market strategy. Launched in September 2013 in Beta as a free mobile application for iOS, My Study Rewards helps teenagers and adult learners build and test applicable knowledge while being rewarded with discount purchase offers from national brands and retailers for their efforts. The app’s full launch is scheduled for late 2013.
“My Study Rewards is a mobile app that truly has a social mission, which is to apply the mechanics of gaming and rewards to fuel a love of learning in young people and adults,” says Dominique Wilkins, founder and CEO of My Study Rewards. “The Motifworks team has become a natural extension of my team, giving us much-needed technical skill and experience to continue building the most user-friendly and dynamic application possible. That’s what we owe the students and adult learners who are engaged in learning and preparing themselves for today’s workforce.”
Wilkins, who is based in Prince George’s County, MD, says My Study Rewards focuses on making learning more social, mobile and rewarding for teenagers and adults. The app aggregates engaging educational content, including videos and e-books, and synchronizes their use with a point system. When users reach designated point tiers, they are automatically rewarded with discount retail offers. My Study Rewards also features its own trivia game application, called PopQ (available as an in-app purchase for $0.99) that provides a special “homework” mechanism that users can deploy to earn more points and rewards.
“My Study Rewards is a great example of a well-designed mobile application that can be a disruptive force in helping improve people’s lives,” says Nitin Agarwal, CEO of Motifworks. “We’re proud to partner with Dominique and his team to accelerate his company’s mobile application and cloud-based development – as well as his company’s overall growth.”
Deploying Agile methodology for product development, the Motifworks team is partnering with My Study Rewards to create an enterprise version of the mobile app that can be used by university and college students, faculty and staff. The project also includes work to optimize the user experience for use with iPhone.
