SAN MATEO, Calif. — August 6, 2019 — Today IXL Learning, the K-12 personalized learning platform used by more than 7 million students worldwide, announced the release of the IXL app for Android phones. Featuring IXL’s complete curriculum of more than 8,000 skills across math, English language arts, science, social studies and Spanish, the IXL Android app can be downloaded for free on the Google Play Store.

With this release and the recent release of IXL for iPhone, the IXL app is fully available across all major mobile devices including iPad, Android tablets, Kindle, and Chromebook, making personalized learning more accessible to learners on the go. The IXL app has been downloaded 15.8 million times to date.

“We’ve worked hard to create an engaging learning experience for students of all ages and abilities,” said Paul Mishkin, CEO of IXL Learning. “Now, with the addition of the IXL app for Android phones, students can always explore new topics and master new skills, no matter where they are or what device they have on hand.”


Support for every learner

By bringing its student-centered learning experience to Android phones, IXL makes it even more convenient for learners to work on skills that meet their unique needs. On IXL, personalized questions adapt to their current level of understanding, introducing concepts at the perfect time and at the right difficulty level. As students practice, detailed explanations help them grasp new concepts and quickly learn from their mistakes. 


Engaging learning experiences for mobile

Along with IXL’s carefully crafted curriculum, the IXL Android phone app offers a host of mobile-only features. For example, handwriting recognition allows students to enter their answers to math questions by writing on the screen. And, the app keeps students motivated to learn more, with a real-time progress bar that displays how close they are to achieving their next milestone. The SIIA CODiE Awards has recognized this engaging mobile interface as the Best Educational App for a Mobile Device for two years.
