OneTap receives Connected to the Community Award

AppColony is both happy and honoured to receive the Canadian Wireless Telecommunications Association’s Connected to the Community Award. This award celebrates organizations using wireless technology to improve the lives of Canadians. We would like to thank the CWTA for inviting us to their wonderful event and for recognizing our work with OneTap.

Since launching this past February, OneTap has been downloaded by thousands of Canadians, helping prevent over 50,000 notifications while they drive. That’s over 2.3 million kilometres of distraction-free driving. We’re very proud of how the app has performed and we’re excited for OneTap’s future.

About the Connected to the Community Awards The Connected to the Community Awards are an opportunity for the CWTA to pay tribute to outstanding organizations in Canada’s wireless industry. The program has focused on numerous partnerships with community projects – ranging from organ transplants to emergency access programs – as well as educational and R&D initiatives ranging from mentoring programs to major funding for ground-breaking research by some of Canada’s top researchers.

About the Canadian Wireless Telecommunications Association The Canadian Wireless Telecommunications Association is the authority on wireless issues, developments and trends in Canada. It represents wireless service providers as well as companies that develop and produce products and services for the industry, including handset and equipment manufacturers, content and application creators and business-to-business service providers.
