BALTIMORE, MD--(Marketwired - Jul 23, 2013) - Diabetes is now a disease that affects 371 million people worldwide, and 187 million of them do not even know they have the disease, according to the International Diabetes Federation (IDF).
Diabetes EDC, a free mobile app by EDC-Apps.com for both Apple (https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/diabetes-edc/id664513793?mt=8&ls=1) and Android devices, curates the best videos on YouTube into an easy, quick app channel that ensures viewers aren't overwhelmed by content all at once. The app also features a brief interactive Pop Quiz after each viewed video that helps ensure you've been educated on the content you just watched, as well as optionally enters the viewer into sponsored giveaways. Viewers can also signup to receive curated samples of Diabetes related products and special offers each month by subscribing to www.boxofcare.com.
"We wanted to provide a quick, engaging way for mobile users to discover information and products relating to Diabetes without having to spend time searching," says Kevin L. Summerfield, the Marketing Executive with EDC-Apps. "We're hoping that by watching and participating in engaging multiple choice Pop Quizzes, they'll retain some of the information better, as well as get curated sample products delivered right to their doorstep each month that introduces them to new products and services they may not have considered before."
Diabetes EDC will also provide badge notifications each time new videos are added, with only a limited amount of videos allowed to be viewed each week. Viewers can also post any video to their personal Facebook page directly from the app to share with family and friends. Those who enter into each giveaway can go to www.diabetesedc.com each month to see which campaigns are running at any time and view bios on previously selected winners. Participants can only enter into the giveaways by taking the selected Pop Quizzes, which change on a regular basis.
