In a world where the mobile app craze is showing no signs of slowing down, and new app releases are a dime a dozen, it’s pretty cool for our Cor.kz Wine Info iPhone application to be acknowledged as a ‘standout’ in the somewhat over-crowded mobile app space. Previously at Cor.kz, we’ve been fortunate enough to attract some solid media attention during our five-year shelf life, with positive mentions in some well-respected mainstream publications, including Time magazine, The New York Times, and The Washington Post. However, our most recent pat on the back has come our way via a rather unexpected, yet nevertheless very welcome source, Parents magazine. We recently received the thumbs up for Cor.kz, with notification of the honor from Parents magazine via an email: “Congratulations! Your app, Cor.kz, has been named as one of this year’s “70 Best Apps for Families” by Parents magazine.
The email went on to explain how Cor.kz came to be included amongst the 70 popular apps amongst parents: “To compile the list, the Parents team tapped families to test hundreds of apps and choose their favorites. The final list includes apps that our family testers and experts felt are most intuitive to use, best priced, and most helpful.“ Their researchfindings has seen Cor.kz housed under the section titled “Best Apps for Every Moment of Your Day” within their 70 Best Apps for Families, nestled between QuizUp and Kids Media. The shout out at Parents.com looks like this:
For us at Cor.kz, we’re super stoked that we were voted in the same company as other notable mobile apps such as Waze, Lumosity, TripAdvisor, and Shazam.
