A feel good story about Word Warp

September 4, 2009

Every so often, in addition to the daily tweets we get about Word Warp, we get sent stories or testimonials from people who rave about our Word Warp game and want to share a little something with us. We love reading these emails and tweets because it’s such an incredible feeling to know that people love and embrace a product that we worked so hard on. Hearing people talk about how they can’t put down the game or that they’re so addicted that they have to play every night before they fall asleep makes us really feel like our hard work has paid off.

Yesterday, we received an email from a guy named Joe, who let us know how much he enjoys playing Word Warp and how it may have helped save his sight!

When Joe began playing Word Warp, he began to realize he was having trouble seeing the letters on the screen with his right eye. As weeks passed, Joe would “test” his eyes with the Word Warp game, seeing if there was any improvement in his sight. When he noticed his vision slowly worsened, he went to an eye doctor, where he was diagnosed with a metabolic cataract, rendering him partially blind in one eye. Luckily, Joe is doing well now, having embarked on a healthy lifestyle, complete with changing his diet and exercising frequently. As he stated (and we can’t agree more!), perhaps “playing Word Warp could save a life?”

And there’s more! So even with this slight obstacle, Joe still managed to put together one of the highest Word Warp scores we have ever seen, racking up over a million points! 1,000,080 to be exact (we’ve included proof below); and he’s still trying to beat it! Congratulations Joe! Your dedication to playing Word Warp is much appreciated and we hope for the best in your future.

What a truly heartwarming story and a great way to end the work week on a high note. If you have any stories about Word Warp you’d like to share with us, definitely send them our way! You can email them to Marketing@MobilityWare with “Word Warp” in the subject line. We love getting customer feedback.

Until next time, keep Word Warping! Have a great weekend!

MobilityWare in CNN Money!

July 27, 2009

So  Greystripe has been conducting a marketing campaign to try to get more app developers to use their services.  They’ve been collecting data and just recently published some financials on what some of their developers, including us, have done.  They decided to spotlight two of our products, Word Search and everybody’s favorite, Word Warp

Greystripe was able to get some press on this and some articles about us were recently published.  In fact, CNN has a piece about how well Word Warp is doing (found here) and points out that on average, the Word Warp game “brings in just over $10,000 a month.”  Now, may we point out that this $10,000 isn’t from sales of Word Warp, but rather from the advertising in our free version of Word Warp.  As happy as we are from the good press we receive, we’d like to point out that these numbers and statistics are only possible because of you guys.  Our fans are the reasons we make our games, and we appreciate immensely the support you guys provide.  Our goal is to make you guys happy and we love getting feedback!

We’re also happy to say that the reason we offer a paid version of Word Warp as well as a free version of Word Warp, is to give people an option to choose which product they’d like to play. As our director of Marketing Dave Yonamine explains, “we’re giving consumers that choice, and whatever they go with is fine with us.”

So there you go, our success is because of your dedication! Thank you and keep Word Warping!

There’s big things cooking here at MobilityWare and honestly, we can’t wait to share them with you! Definitely stay tuned to the MobilityWare blog and follow us on Twitter so you can be on the heads up on all of our news.

Hello!

So lately, we’ve been noticing the increase of traffic to our blog and we could not be happier!! If you are here for the first time, WELCOME and please make yourself at home! A big THANK YOU to everybody for the love and support you’ve shown our games, especially Word Warp!

Now we know you guys play Word Warp quite frequently, and you may or may not have come across something that you felt the game was lacking or could be improved upon. Well, we want to hear from you!
Do you have any funny stories about Word Warp? Did you play it so much you missed an appointment? Do you feel like you have the best Word Warp high score around and you wish there was a way to brag about it? Or what do you think we should include in our next version of Word Warp? Is it a certain word that Word Warp didn’t recognize when you were playing, thus ruining your high score?

We know you guys have all these ideas, so here is your exclusive chance to fire away, to share with us your stories, to let us in on your frustration, to express your gripes, moans, and groans. We’re thinking that after we accumulate enough suggestions, that we run a poll and have people vote on what they think is an idea worth considering!

Now, before you start thinking up some ideas or racking your memory for stories, you may be asking yourself how you’re going to be able to share with us these things. Well my fellow Word Warper, there are a number of ways you can get in contact with us. You can either post a comment on the blog, or you can write on our wall on the Word Warp Facebook Page, or tweet about it on our MobilityWare Twitter page (making sure you mention Word Warp or @MobilityWare in your message), or if you have a longer message to give us, shoot us an email at Marketing@MobilityWare.com. We monitor all three of these networks quite extensively so you won’t have to worry about your message falling through the cracks because we will be reading them (and we might even respond too!).

Last but not least, it’s July 23rd, meaning you only have 4 or so days left to enter in the WORD WARP FRENZY for your chance to win a paid version of Word Warp! If you haven’t entered yet, the whole process is extremely simple and takes just seconds. Here are some instructions on how to do it (and there’s pictures inside to help speed it up!)

Anyway, hope your day is going great and make sure to send us those stories/complaints/ideas/suggestions soon. We LOVE hearing from you guys! Talk to you soon!

Interesting Tidbit

July 16, 2009

So while looking up people’s thoughts and feelings about some of our games (list can be found here) on Twitter, Facebook and the App Store, we here at MobilityWare were in awe by how many comments revolved around a certain topic, people’s Word Warp high score. After sorting through dozens and dozens of messages/comments/tweets by people stating they had a great Word Warp high score, or that they had just broken their old unbeatable Word Warp record, all these claims got us thinking. Why don’t we have a place where people can compare scores and actually see who really does have the best Word Warp score? A friendly contest perhaps? How about a weekly submission type of thing? Would you guys be interested in something like that? Let us know! Keep posting about Word Warp; we try and read everybody’s stories/claims.

You can follow us on twitter @MobilityWare and become a fan of us on facebook here. Feel free to send us a message, we love hearing from you guys!

Anyway, to everybody who has participated so far in the Word Warp Frenzy, THANK YOU! Things are looking good so far and we’re ecstatic with all the love people are showing for Word Warp. Tell all your friends!

If you haven’t already entered, do it now! The whole process takes just seconds; our fellow Word Warp fans will attest to that. Here are instructions with pictures that show you exactly what to do.

Talk to you guys soon
