WATERFORD, IRELAND and WASHINGTON, DC--(Marketwire - Mar 18, 2013) - FeedHenry (www.feedhenry.com), provider of mobile enterprise application solutions that simplify the development and management of mobile apps, announced today that the MyHealthyWorld(SM) mobile e-curriculum has completed an extensive beta testing program across multiple devices and is now available for general distribution to U.S. schools.
The milestone was acknowledged during a St. Patrick's Day business luncheon in Washington D.C. to mark Ireland's strong commercial ties with the U.S. The event featured Ireland's Prime Minister (An Taoiseach) Enda Kenny and other distinguished guests. It was organized by Enterprise Ireland, the government agency responsible for the development and growth of Irish enterprises in world markets.
In partnership with My Healthy World, Inc. (www.myhealthyworld.com), FeedHenry provided the technology platform for the cloud-hosted application that runs on smartphones, pad devices and traditional computer browsers, and includes a full learning management system, as well as a teacher and administration portal.
