FN Media Group Presents Oilprice.com Market Commentary
LONDON, Aug. 5, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- The battle for high-tech solutions on the frontline of the COVID-19 pandemic in Canada is heating up with explosive app activity coming from every direction including COVID contact-tracing and even an innovative social distancing trivia app designed to defy the pandemic's rules of personal engagement. Mentioned in today's commentary includes: Facebook (NASDAQ: FB), Google (NASDAQ: GOOGL), Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:APPL), Netflix, Inc. (NASDAQ:NFLX), Zoom Video Communications, Inc. (NASDAQ:ZM).
The first app has prompted a powerful labor union demand that the federal government use it as the only high-tech solution that fills in the gap with wearables. The second app is seeing surging downloads—globally.
For Facedrive (FD,FDVRF) and its partner in COVID contact-tracing app TraceScan--the Laborers' International Union of North America (LiUNA), one of the largest labor unions in the world--being on the front lines of the pandemic has been a fast-paced endeavor. Amid the pandemic, demand for HiQ, a new social distancing trivia app by Facedrive has skyrocketed in a very short time.
On Wednesday, August 5th, Facedrive announced that HiQ--one of the newest elements of the company's "people and planet first" high-tech ESG ecosystem--had reached over 1,000,000 downloads. Only five weeks after the launch, the pandemic restrictions have demonstrated high-level demand for new avenues of digital entertainment that allow you to engage safely with others.
"At Facedrive, we are very excited by the great reception that the HiQ platform has enjoyed over the past month. We place a great value on the trust and loyalty of our users, and will be making continuous efforts to further improve the platform and introduce added features with every new release. One million downloads of the HiQ app also constitutes an important milestone for Facedrive, marking a new step towards cross-platform adoption of its services, positive reinforcement action between Facedrive's verticals and eventually successful monetization," said CEO and Chairman of Facedrive Sayan Navaratnam.
