About Redwind Software

By: Conor 8. September 2014 10:09
  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 Grea... [More]

Another Year Over

By: Conor 22. December 2013 13:11
  2013 was another smashing year @ Redwind. It's hard to believe how much we have grown and all we have achieved in just a few short years and 2013 continued that trend. We've doubled our team, outgrown a 3rd office in as many years and logged more hours in Mario Kart than the entire Nintendo development team combined. More...

Both in terms of their skills and general soundness, we believe we have the best team around.     More...

So, yesterday Name That Movie™ got reviewed on Wired.com. Here is the impact on sales, versus the previous week.     Nice. 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.   All in all, pretty cool. Now if a few more of the big boys manage to pick up... [More]

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 long... [More]
