Feb. 20, 2014 - PRLog -- WhizFish, an interactive marketing company in Toledo, Ohio, is ramping up efforts on building smartphone and tablet apps for schools in the U.S. and Canada because of greatly increased demand. The WhizFish Apps For Schools are designed to streamline communication to parents, students and the community. The apps are proven to be both a communication and marketing tool for schools allowing them to send alerts, allow for one click access to various school departments, send school news including reminders, post schedules and GPS directions to off-site events, show off student achievment and build school spirit and loyalty.

Betsey Duggan, CEO of WhizFish, said, "There has been a surge in demand for mobile apps by schools. School principals and superintendents are calling us on a daily basis asking how they can have an app for their school and what's involved in building it and publishing it to Google and Apple. For that reason, we have increased the size of our Apps for Schools division to have staff dedicated to working with school officials."

Mobile apps resonate with parents because they grew up on the Web and they expect communication to be immediate and concise and they want to access that information from their phone or tablet because that is what they use to connect to the world. Smartphone usage among parents of school aged kids is over 85% and many own a phone and a tablet.

Some of the features of a Apps for Schools incude, push notification alerts, click to call, GPS directions, schedules, voice messaging, m-commerce for collecting fees and selling merchandise, the ability to fill out forms, two clicks to any school information.
