The edtech market in India saw continued growth in the second quarter of 2016. Interest from investors, especially in early stage rounds, was on par with the first quarter. http://buff.ly/2aegXmU

Educational app maker Duolingo launched a stand-alone flashcard learning app this week making it the company’s first step to move beyond language learning.

Is Tinycards going to be a success of similar size like Duolingo, or is it more of a trojan horse that aims at taking over the brain training vertical?
