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!

For those of you contemplating on buying a smartwatch, what’s the biggest reason for your purchase? Is it for convenience? For gaming? For bragging about being an early adopter?

These are all great reasons to buy a smartwatch, but did you know that this tiny technology is making a huge impact on businesses everywhere? For example, during a busy day at work, a smartwatch can alert an employee if his or her output is short. In about 30 of the Fortune 500 companies, wearables are promoting a healthier lifestyle by encouraging its users to exercise. You can read more about these positive impacts through Wareable’s article here!
