Our story

Redwind Software board meeting, 1986. L-R: David McMahon, Stephen Rickard, Conor Winders



Redwind Software was first imagined back in 1986 in Dublin, Ireland when founders and childhood friends Conor Winders (4) and David McMahon (4) began planning their first mobile app. A visionary, well ahead of his time, David had an idea for a movie trivia game that anyone could enjoy from any place, that they could carry with them on their phones. Unfortunately, the technology of the time was simply not advanced enough for David and Conor to create this game, tentatively titled "The Greatest Movie Trivia Quiz Game In The World, Ever - Powered by David and Conor's Quiz making engine". However, inspired by David's flaming red hair and Conor's surname the idea of Redwind Software was born.


22 uneventuful years followed...


But then, in 2008 Apple announced the App Store and the iPhone SDK. Finally it seemed technology was ready for what Conor and David had been waiting to unleash upon the world. Movie Challenge was released in November 2008 to universal acclaim. Worldwide attention soon followed as Redwind began to rack up an incredible list of clients such as Elvis Presley Enterprises, Heineken USA, Paddy Power and more. In 2011 Redwind became one of the first 10 companies to receive investment as part of Enterprise Ireland's Competitive Start Fund for High Potential Startups. With each year the team has grown and to date Redwind has produced over 150 apps, working with the biggest brands in the world and continuing to release original products.
