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
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays.. we hope you spent your weekend with friends and family! No Motivation Monday this week.. we figure the holidays were enough motivation to power us through the week!
So did you get an Android tablet for Christmas? Maybe you got a Nexus 7 or a Samsung Galaxy Tab?
If so.. or you got a new Android phone, download our newest Android app graBLOX! If you haven’t heard of it, it’s our newest Android puzzle game that’s unlike any other app in the store. Google featured it on their Google Play Market and we’ve received some amazing feedback on it so far.
We’ve got so many great ideas coming for it and we can’t wait to unveil them for you guys. Go and get the app from Google Play for free here! Let us know what you think.
If you’ve played the game and you can’t get enough of it, check out our graBLOX contest that we’re running. If you didn’t get a Nexus 7 tablet for Christmas, there’s a chance you could get one here…..No comments

Hope you guys all had a great Thanksgiving weekend!
Now that we’re all refreshed, let’s start this week off right!
Let’s not let obstacles get in the way of what we want! Here’s to a good week!No comments
With Thanksgiving upon us, before we pass the mashed potatoes and reach for the turkey, it’s time to think of what we’re thankful for. Yesterday on our Facebook, we posted an article about how over 1 million apps have been submitted to the iOS App Store. Granted that this does not mean there are 1 million apps in the store (yet), it’s still a very impressive number! We’re blessed to have our apps included in such great company, and we’re truly thankful for the continuous support we receive from our fans.
We know sometimes our apps might not perform to your expectations or maybe a faulty ad ruins your gameplay experience, but we appreciate you reaching out and letting us know of your problem. Let us make it right! At the end of the day, we do this for you guys. Like we’ve said many times before, we could put out an app that we’re really proud of, but if our fans don’t play it, then the app isn’t going to do well.
So this year, we just wanted to thank you guys, the fans, in supporting what we love to do, every single day.
Now your turn!No comments
