Retina iPad Wallpapers

So you just got a The New iPad or maybe you just won one from your wonderful friends at @redwindsoft


Wallpaper 2048x2048 05


If you are anything like me you have spent a fair whack of time on the googlemachine trying to find fancy retina wallpapers to show off the glorious screen of your The New iPad. However, the sad reality is you probably have more chance of finding content on Google+ than finding something you'd be happy to adorn your The New iPad's home screen and lock screen with.


Well search no more. Courtesy of our very own @nagore_uriarte we have some awesome wallpapers for you :)

Getting reviewed on does this

By: Conor 12. April 2012 13:11

So, yesterday Name That Movie™ got reviewed on

Here is the impact on sales, versus the previous week.


Ntm sales april



For a little more context, yesterday's sales are the 7th biggest in the apps short life, roughly half the amount of the highest sales day.


And while we are showing off the auld vanity metrics, how's about this for a spike on the Name That Movie™ website traffic.

Ntm traffic april


All in all, pretty cool. Now if a few more of the big boys manage to pick up the app and review/feature it we'll be laughing.

Stats from this blog

By: Conor 10. April 2012 13:41

Just for GLOLz I thought it'd be interesting to see which posts generated the most views on this here blog. I only did February and March because we hadn't actually posted anything before that since November (bad bad, naughty Redwinners).


One thing to note is that the values on the axes change a fair amount between the two graphs. So really we got way more visits in Feb-March, particularly when we did the 3 posts at once.


But interestingly the visitors in March-April hung around a lot longer, particularly in the days after the Push-It post.

The Irish Times

Redwind Irish Times

Yes, the rumors were true! Ireland's most prestigious newspaper has run an article today about your lovable cuddly buddies at Redwind.

Some choice quotes…

  • It was a case of first up, best dressed for mobile app and gaming company Redwind Software
  • “You can’t make money in the Android market at all” says Winders
  • But how did it feel to concede a 10 per cent stake? “While the company is doing okay at the same time you’re kind of giving away 10 per cent of nothing unless you do well, so it’s in everybody’s interests to do well.”
  • “It was validation for us that our games were as good as we thought they were”

Or just go read the full story here!

Two weeks in a row, does this make it a tradition?

Not sure what's the best part, my dancing, Nibbles' dancing, my avatar's dancing or Nibbles' avatar's dancing?
