We’re back! Yes it’s been a while since our last post here, but we’re back, hungrier than ever, and so excited to show you all the work we’ve been working on this past year. And what better news than to come back with than to announce that our Solitaire app ranks number 21 in Apple’s Top Time All Free iPad Apps!
It’s extremely exciting for us to see that we’ve been included alongside some great company, namely Skype, the Weather Channel app, Twitter, and Temple Run, all apps that we use on a daily basis. We always get emails and comments on our social networks about how much you guys enjoy a nice game of Solitaire after a long day or how it passes the time in waiting rooms and in lines, and so we know that we wouldn’t be able to garner these accomplishments without the support of you guys. Seeing your positive (and negative!) responses is the motivation that drives us each day to make each update better than our last.
We’ve got some really exciting plans for you guys in the next coming months, including some very big updates on some of your favorite apps, and also some brand new apps that could become your next favorite. Stay tuned for what’s to come, you will not be disappointed!!
If you haven’t downloaded Solitaire, you can get it here for free!No comments
Yesterday we announced we released our newest update to graBLOX. Now you can play 25 brand new levels along with harnessing the power of a brand new BLOX!
So what is this BLOX called? We figured because you guys have always shown us support, that we should give our fans the opportunity to name this BLOX!
Leave your best suggestions in the comments or on our MobilityWare Facebook!No comments
So we promised at the end of last year that we had a bunch of stuff planned for you guys in 2013. Last month we introduced to you guys graBLOX Style, our graBLOX themed parody of Gangnam Style.
Today, we’re super excited to announce that we just released a brand new update for graBLOX into the Google Play Store. This update not only adds 25 challenging new puzzles for you to tinker over but also a brand new BLOX!
Here are some screenshots of the new levels and the new BLOX in action!
This new BLOX takes the form of a sun. When tapped, it bursts into 4 flames that will incinerate the first thing they touch! So if you’ve already beaten all of the levels so far, here’s 25 more you can work on figuring out!
Remember, if you ever run into trouble and you can’t seem to figure out how to beat a level, don’t be shy! Head on over to our graBLOX Facebook Page and ask for help! We’ve got a great network of people who share advice on how to get past tricky levels!
Check back soon for a special contest we’re doing to coincide with this graBLOX update!
If you haven’t played graBLOX yet, you can download it for free from the Google Play Store.
Motivation comes in different forms! Instead of posting a Motivation Monday picture, we thought we’d share with you a very sweet and uplifting video by Kid President. This guy is young but he’s got some really motivating points!
The video is dedicated to a child who’s fighting cancer, but it’s something that can inspire us all!No comments
This was the sunset at Crystal Cove Beach, about 15 minutes from our office in Orange County.
Why were we there, you might ask? We’ve got a big surprise planned and we can’t wait to show you next week!No comments

When you set a goal, don’t worry about the stuff you can’t control.. focus on yourself and your end goal! Go out and get it!No comments
Here’s today’s Motivation Monday!
If you feel like you’re going in the wrong direction, you can change! Don’t let yourself be intimidated because you’re scared of changing your plans. It’s never too late to make a move!No comments
With 2012 coming to a close, we realize this has been an amazing year for us at MobilityWare. Our Solitaire was just named one of Apple’s Best Free Apps of 2012, and that was just one of the accomplishments that we’ve been so proud of during this eventful year. Before we tell you how amazing 2013 will be for us, let’s look back on some memorable moments that stick out from 2012.
Early in 2012, Apple reached 25 billion app downloads from their iTunes App Store. To help celebrate, they released a list of the Top 25 apps of all time for all their iOS devices. We were thrilled to see that our Solitaire made the list on the Top 25 Free iPad Apps of All Time. This sure set the table for the rest of 2012!
After receiving word that Solitaire was recognized by Apple as one of the Best iPad Apps of All Time, we soon saw that on February 29, we had the #1 Solitaire, #1 Spider Solitaire, and the #1 FreeCell apps in the iTunes App Store, the Android Market, and the Amazon Appstore! Although we were super excited about the achievement, we know that we couldn’t have accomplished this without the support of our fans. We decided to declare March as MobilityWare March.
All month long, we did things that recognized the support of our fans. Some of the things we ran during MobilityWare March included featuring some of our most die-hard supporters and running a Photo Contest where we were able to see just how creative our fans were. We thought MobilityWare March was a great success.
In March, the Amazon Appstore turned one year old. To help celebrate, Amazon released their 10 most popular paid and free apps from its past year. Our Solitaire was ranked #3 on the Top Free Apps List, right behind Angry Birds and Netflix. Pretty impressive company huh?
If you have a Kindle, download Solitaire for free here!
In April, we introduced to our fans the very first glimpse of the noblest employee at MobilityWare, the King, or more fittingly known as The MobilityWare King.
This started the series our fans might know as “Fridays With the MobilityWare King”. Our King was seen riding bikes, playing hockey, cooking, promoting Stroke Awareness, skateboarding, and many others.
The King hasn’t been seen that much this fall, but that’s because he’s working on something big. How big? Just keep an eye out in 2013…
We dedicated all of June to supporting Stroke Awareness. We realized that stroke is one of the leading causes of death in the United States, as well as the leading cause of adult disability in the United States, and the issue hit close to home as one of our own suffered a stroke late in 2011. Therefore, we thought it was important to raise the issue of stroke awareness, so that we were all aware about how to prevent a stroke and what to do if stroke symptoms occurred. We posted blog posts all month just trying to educate people about what a stroke was, what to do, etc. Click here to see all the stroke-related blog posts we wrote that month.
We also ran a campaign where we donated 10 cents for every “Like” on Facebook we got in June. We also put in 10 cents for every “Like” we had on Facebook already. We were able to successfully raise over $700, and happily donated it to the National Stroke Association.
We are so grateful to everyone who participated.
On August 14, we introduced the newest app to the MobilityWare catalog, graBLOX. graBLOX is a puzzle game that’s unlike any other app in the Google Play Market. The premise of the game is pretty simple, just remove the BLOX from the board. But as you progress through the game, you encounter more BLOX, and each of them does something different, leading to a game that will have you thinking for hours!
We’ve got some huge plans for graBLOX in 2013 and we can’t wait to unveil them.
In August, we broke the 10,000 Likes barrier on Facebook. We were ecstatic and decided to give away a Nexus 7 away on Facebook to one of our lucky fans.
To cap off our amazing year, Apple named Solitaire on their Best of 2012 list. We were delighted to see that Solitaire came in at #76 on their Best Free Apps List of 2012. Of course, like all our other accomplishments, we couldn’t have done it without the support of our fans. Like we’ve said many times, we could put out a product that we’re really proud of, but if our fans don’t play it, review it, tell their friends about it, then our app wouldn’t garner any success. So from all of us at MobilityWare, thank you for always supporting us!
Let us be the first to tell you that 2013 will be an amazing year for MobilityWare. We’ve been hard at work cranking out things that we’re so excited about. Seriously, we cannot wait for you guys to see them! We’ve got big plans and we can’t wait for you guys to see them! Keep an eye out for us!No comments
