Working with good, skilled people is fun. A vital team spirit is also highly motivating for the troops and after a while, it feels like we are all in the same family. Some prefer to say we’re in the same boat, but boats tend to sink and move slowly. Family is for a lifetime; once a Comrade, always a Comrade.
Last year was quite spectacular for us and somewhere it is written that 2013 will be even better. Looking back at 2012, we’d like to thank 3 special people who have all succeeded in bringing WebComrades to the next level.
More than a year ago we decided to make an app that had to scratch our own itch. Our itch was the missing information on the red rental bikes (Velookes) in Antwerp. As heavy-users of the Velo Antwerpen service, we thought it made sense to make an app for internal usage. That internal usage soon (a few days later) appeared to be interesting for just more than the 3 of us. Finally (= a week later), we decided to launch the free app in the app stores and make both an iPhone/iPad and Android version of it.
Hola! Yes, we’ve been to Barcelona last week. Obviously for the good weather, the parties and the Spanish food and lovely señoritas. But rather & mainly to plan our next strategic moves for 2013 and visit some clients. Now that the little media storm has passed on Turtle Soup, it’s back to coding like a scientific madman, rolling-out good stuff, hereby avoiding too much blah-blah in the process.
The Unibet Football Stats Centre has been updated. Yes, from a rather static statistical tool (you followin’?) with a team calendar and a nice history of games, head-to-heads, team details and player profiles we upgraded the app with the EURO 2012-data.
The successful Unibet Sports TV Guide has now been rolled-out out to Norway, Denmark, Greece and Italy too. The app has made the sports charts in >20 countries, so we made local editions of the most interesting markets. And there is more to come by the end of August.

It’s been quiet at the western front, yes we know that. But since we’ve got a lot coming-up very soon, we decided to catch-up on our PR & communication back-log and provide you peeps with more up-to-date intel from now on. Here’s a social play-along website we made for the start of the Swedish Football competition, which is called the Allsvenskan League.

WebComrades was sent on a mission by idMedia to develop a user-friendly iPad application for Ford’s Lead Management System at the 89th European Motorshow in Brussels. (concept by idMedia). To celebrate our first B2B iPad application we’re also giving away 2×2 tickets for the European Motorshow.
