We were featured in Gamasutra!

The biggest news in the headlines today is that Apple has officially released the Apple Watch to the public. Herds of people have flocked outside of Apple Stores to receive their pre-orders (we were VERY excited when we received our Apple Watches!). But you know what’s even better news that you don’t have to wait in line for?

Our VP of Product Development, Robert Jackson, has a featured article in Gamasutra about the Apple Watch! This article is a good read for game designers that might want a little insight on Apple Watch development. He focuses on how the Apple Watch has started the evolution of “micro-gaming” and a completely new approach to game design.

WATCH OUT, because we’ve got an new addition to the Solitaire family!

The way people played Solitaire has changed immensely since the past two decades. First, you had your deck of playing cards. Then, you had your computer. After that, MobilityWare brought you Solitaire on your smart phone. Pretty soon, we will have a cool new way for you to play Solitaire…

Get EXCITED, because your favorite Solitaire app is coming to the Apple Watch!

 

Now you can play Solitaire as easily as checking the time! Solitaire on the Apple Watch allows you to play the Daily Challenges on your wrist, so it will be easier to rack up those jeweled crowns. Each challenge you solve will sync up with the calendar in your Solitaire app on the iPhone. All your excuses of getting a gold trophy every month just flew out the window!

MobilityWare gets a makeover!

We’ve been busy little bees the last couple of months, tinkering around behind the scenes to create a fresh new look for our logo and website. It hasn’t been an easy process. Along the way there were some real duds (cough, a MobilityWare snail logo, cough), but we finally found the perfect one.

Our new logo is a representation of the Golden Mean, which can be found in nature (for example seashells), art (The Mona Lisa for one), and math (as a special geometric relationship).

The Golden Mean, sometimes also called the Golden Ratio, factors into human perception of beauty and also represents the ideal moderate position between two extremes.

We thought that was pretty fitting, since MobilityWare is all about making beautiful games that everyone can love. Our updated website (www.mobilityware.com) was inspired by the look of our new logo, as well as a more photo-centric approach to showing the outside world what MobilityWare is all about. We love our new look, and we hope you do too! Tell us what you think about our new logo and website in the comments below.

 

The new logo and website isn’t all we’ve been working on. Stay tuned for our next blog post where we reveal the behind-the-scenes story about bringing Solitaire to the new Apple Watch!
