BARCELONA, Spain, Feb. 25, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- CooTek (NYSE: CTK), a previous winner for the Mobile Innovation Award at the GSMA Global Mobile Awards, today hosted a live meditation campaign through its popular mindfulness and meditation app "Breeze" at the Mobile World Congress 2019 ("MWC19") to showcase how it can deliver relevant entertainment and meditation content.
Campaign participants were able to take a 10-minute break from their busy lives to listen to relaxing music and follow a guided meditation through the Breeze app. A sofa and noise-canceling headphones were provided to each participant in order to mimic an ideal meditation environment. "Phones can not only be our connection to the world, but also our shelter from stressful life," commented Mr. Zhengchao Lu, Product Director at CooTek.
Along with Breeze, CooTek also showcased its global portfolio of apps which span across five select verticals including fitness, lifestyle, healthcare, news and short videos, and entertainment at MWC19. These apps include the feminine care app, "Cherry," which provides professional healthcare content and a community for users to discuss and share content related to menstrual cycles, relationships, fashion, and more. The Company also showcased its "VeeU" short video app which generates personalized content containing the hottest and funniest short videos.
Founded in 2008, CooTek launched its first and most popular product, TouchPal Keyboard. In 2016, CooTek began extending its focus from TouchPal Keyboard to apps that deliver relevant content. Leveraging its advanced AI and big data technology, CooTek is able to create a unified content recommendation system which enables its portfolio apps to deliver the most relevant content to users.
Widening its focus has proven to be very successful for CooTek. The average daily active users ("DAUs") of CooTek's portfolio apps surged 14.7 times year-over-year in September 2018, and generated revenue growth of over 300% year-over-year in the third quarter of 2018. CooTek's portfolio apps accounted for approximately 66.6% to CooTek's total revenue during the third quarter of 2018.
"5G is coming in 2019 and will bring with it great opportunities as it revolutionizes global content delivery." said Mr. Michael Wang, CooTek's CEO. "Innovation is still the key to staying ahead. We will continue to innovate new technologies and invest in our content-rich apps so everyone can receive relevant content seamlessly."
