We happily discovered that MindMash had been featured in CTV News’ App Central, alongside Essential Anatomy and Mailbox. A few days later, Michael Bancroft once again featured MindMash as one of his top picks in Apps of the World. The same video made it to Canada’s The Loop. The interest over there from our friends at Canada is humbling. Thank you and we hope to deliver more fun brainstorming and note-taking features on MindMash soon.
MindMash is a brainstorming and note-taking iPad app. It’s a canvas for your ideas and it’s free on the App Store.
Numlock’s Ramon Pastor appeared as a guest yesterday in Future Perfect on ANC to share his WWDC experiences and give updates on the local mobile development industry. Ramon also talked about his passion for the iOS platform and how he started in the business of mobile development.
Future Perfect is a show that focuses on the practical use of technology and how it can be best adapted for the Filipino audience. It is hosted by ABS-CBN veteran Tony Velasquez and airs every Wednesday at 7 p.m.
Numlock Solutions is mentioned in the June 2012 issue of Entrepreneur magazine. The article outlines how homegrown tech companies such as Numlock have built a sustainable business by creating custom mobile apps for enterprises.
“Another Filipino IT company, Numlock Solutions, has unlocked the opportunities in app development. At first, Ramon Pastor engaged in mobile development as a supporting service to differentiate his company from the competition. He was also self-taught and specifically learned about the Apple platform. In 2009, with the help of his wife Glenda and business partner Mai Ladanga, Pastor’s Numlock Solutions came out with its first iPhone app, WalletWhiz. Note-taking application MindMash and traffic app StreetSmart soon followed, and web development was promptly shown the door.”
