Does anyone actually read the ECHO?
Surprisingly, they do, and the numbers speak for themselves.
So far, the ECHO app has received a total of 104,792 views since its creation, and this doesn’t come without a few loyal supporters. You read that correctly: 104,792 views.
“I really enjoy reading other students’ writing; I find the articles intriguing and I love seeing their ideas in the app,” stated junior Isabella DiPietrantonio.
The number of App Store downloads has been low (only 383 people have downloaded the app) but these numbers don’t include the app being automatically installed onto all Beaver Area student and staff iPads.
Out of the people who have downloaded the app, some were from overseas including 17 of those downloads in China (so watch out Mr. Maracek, the Chinese government may be spying on you).
Additionally, the number of impressions, the number of times an app has been viewed in the App Store, is extremely high, at a staggering 10,968 impressions.
“The ECHO is cool and quirky,” exclaimed sophomore Dimitri Mathias, “and the stories are actually epic.”
The ECHO app was created in 2018 by Aaron Kovacs, a Beaver Area alum who graduated last year.
Until last year the ECHO was a traditional paper publication dating back to the 1930’s.
