BOSTON, Feb. 13, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Lexia Learning, a Rosetta Stone® (RST) company, has released the Lexia® PowerUp™ Literacy (PowerUp) app for iPad® and it is now available in the App Store.

This adds on a whole new level to the student-driven aspect of PowerUp, which helps to accelerate literacy gains for struggling students.”
The Lexia PowerUp for iPad app was launched with support for the iPad and iOS 10 or later. Schools and districts can easily integrate the PowerUp iPad app with their existing infrastructure since Clever login, single sign-on (SSO) via SAML and mobile device management systems are supported.
