About Us

The founding of HLT was sparked by paper flashcards that Alec Whitters, Co-Founder and CEO, and his peers were using to study for their dental boards. Wouldn’t it make better sense, he thought, to use their smartphones to study? When he didn’t find an effective mobile-learning solution, he decided to create it. HLT is a 2012 Iowa City-born startup that develops education apps for smartphones and PCs so that busy students can effectively study anytime and anywhere. Mobile is one of the fastest growing markets in history and HLT has emerged as a market leader with the most popular, highest-grossing, and most-downloaded of all test prep apps on both Android and Apple devices.
