GlassesOff Inc. (OTCBB:GLSO), a neuroscience technology company, today announced that its innovative iPhone application, GlassesOff™, reached the #1 ranking in the App Store’s medical category, as of December 18, 2013, according to www.topappcharts.com.
The GlassesOff app, which is designed to eliminate dependency on reading glasses, in people over the age of 40 by improving the brain’s image processing function, was officially launched on December 10th in the United States. Shortly after the launch, the iPhone app ranked first in the App Store’s medical category for apps that are available to install for free, and has remained the leading product in its category ever since.
“Our scientists and developers have worked on the GlassesOff app for over six years, due to the complexity of the science behind the application, and, until our official launch, only a few hundred users worldwide had used the GlassesOff application during our various testing phases, so naturally we are very pleased with the initial success of the launch,” said Nimrod Madar, Chief Executive Officer of GlassesOff Inc.
“We plan to use the first few months following the launch to gather feedback from users and monitor usage of the application, so we can further improve the app before ramping up our marketing efforts with the intent of increasing awareness and penetrating new geographic markets.
