The app uses the SimpleGeo platform to bring users context-based lessons for about 150 points of interest including barbershops, dentistâ€™s offices, banks, grocery stores and more. Each lesson is built so a user can complete it in three minutes, so as not to detract from the actual experience of being in a restaurant or grocery store.
â€œWeâ€™re getting closer to being able to simulate an immersive experience where the learning is done in the flow of daily life,â€ says founder Paul Gollash.
Voxy monetizes by a subscription model, at $2 a month for users that want added premium services like the ability to get lessons via SMS. The service currently has 100k registered users (75k active users) and is ranked #1 in the App Storeâ€™s Education category for over 8 countries. In Spain the app is #3 in overall apps.
Right now Voxy is only available for Spanish speakers that want to learn English but Gollash plans on expanding to other languages soon, with a version for English speakers who want to learn Spanish now in
