Google Maps #1, Waze #2, RedZone Map #3
MIAMI & NEW YORK (April 28, 2017) – Helios and Matheson Analytics Inc. (NASDAQ: HMNY) and RedZone, creator of theRedZone Map™ app, announced today that, just one week into its London launch, the app has climbed to #3 on AppAnnie’s charts in the UK in all navigation categories, positioned right after Google Maps and Waze.
The initial results of RedZone Map’s London launch verify that this real-time crime mapping app, which enables users to become more aware of the safety conditions around them, addresses a previously unmet need in mobile navigation.
RedZone has developed the app’s proprietary technology considerably since its initial launch, incorporating predictive analytics, artificial intelligence, and powerful social listening capabilities.
When discussing the popularity of the socially empowering app, Ted Farnsworth, founder of RedZone, said “It is rewarding, but it does not surprise me. Today’s world feels different than the one I grew up in, and I believe others are seeing situational awareness as a significant concern, attempting to comprehend risks and trying to enhance their personal safety.”
