Today is a big day here at Redwind with the full launch of Deal or No Deal, bringing to market months and months of blood, sweat and tears, a whole bucket full of graphic design and not a few lines of expertly written code.


But before that…




Best of Luck Ian

On his last day at Redwind, we wanted to take a quick minute and wish Ian Richardson all the best for the future. Almost an exact year since joining Redwind as a JobBridge intern, we hope that he has gotten as much out of our company as our company has gotten out of him.


When he told us a month ago of his plans to move on and out to San Francisco my first thought was "Oh shit, balls, fuck.", which I think might be one of the bigger compliments I've payed somebody in a while.




The Redwind Team

The Team


In the tech/early stage/start-up community there is one nugget of wisdom that you hear more than any others. Amazingly, it's not "Keep your mini-fridge stocked with Magic Hat #9 at all times", but that the most important thing about your business is the people. For us, this is especially true. Both in terms of their skills and general soundness, we believe we have the best team around.

Bruno Mars really isn't the smartest chap is he?

If this song is really how Bruno Mars feels about this lady friend of his, then he is in fact an idiot.




Manchester United sign 2 Arsenal players. Wowzers.

Richardson and van Persie sign for Manchester United


In an incredible, almost unbelievable day of transfer activity in the Premier League, Manchester United have managed to sign not just one, but TWO players away from Arsenal.


Although the Robin van Persie transfer has been been the subject of much speculation and conjecture all summer, very few (if anybody) foresaw the incredible double swoop that took place today, seeing Ian Richardson also complete a move from the Gooners to the Red Devils.

Retina iPad Wallpapers

By: Conor 22. May 2012 10:36
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 Wired.com does this

By: Conor 12. April 2012 13:11

So, yesterday Name That Movie™ got reviewed on Wired.com.

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.
