MyDx One App Tops the Apple iOS Charts
MyDx One is a free app, downloadable with or without owning a multi-use MyDx Analyzer. Even without owning the Analyzer, MyDx One provides users free valuable information to help them find and track cannabis strains and their effectiveness in treating various ailments or producing desired experiences.
As of yesterday, MyDx One was listed as the number one-ranked free app in iOS App Store under the Medical Category (Note: iPhone users, please click on App Store, Top Charts, select Medical Category, Free to view rankings).
As of yesterday, MyDx One was the top trending app in the App Store Search for the keyword “cannabis”.
As of Saturday November 12, 2016, of all the free apps in the iOS App Store, MyDx One was ranked #54, ahead of Google Drive at #55 and just behind Pokémon GO at #53.
“Our ability to achieve the number one ranking in the Apple Store’s medical category is a clear reflection of the industry’s increasing acceptance of our platform and its unique ability to help consumers identify a strain that meets their needs,” said Daniel Yazbeck, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of MyDx. As a result, we are continuing to grow one of the industry’s largest crowdsourced databases with invaluable information that could have only been gathered through the grass roots effort implemented by the CannaDx team since its launch close to one year ago.”
