TaggTo — Back From A Long Journey

This post summarized the story how our latest iPhone app, TaggTo, is created. TaggTo is an iPhone app to provide a better way to discover and share personal product experiences. It’s like product reviews in an easier, more fun, and more trustworthy way.

clingmarks.com just had a major face-lift

This blog was started back in 2007 (it was not under clingmarks.com domain at that time). From day one, it uses just some very basic wordpress themes. When we had more and more games, we started to think migrating this site to a more professional looking one. But for various reasons, this project had never been on the top of our to-do list.

Last week, finally I decided to do it.

Penguins Gone International

Since yesterday, I started to run a free promotion on PenguinLinks Pro v2. After 36 hours, it has exploded all over the world. This is a screenshot from appfigures just a few minutes ago, which shows the ranking of PL2 pro in top 20 countries.

Among them, France is the most amazing one. Just in a few hours, the rank of PL2 Pro jumped to 10 and in another few hours, it was No. 2! The number downloads from France is the summary from all other countries. But before the promotion, the number of download from France was almost free!

Penguin Links Pro 2 Featured

Penguin Links Pro v2 is now featured in “New and Noteworthy” in US, UK and Italia!
Board: US: #2, UK: #2, Italia: #2, Japan: #9
Puzzle: US: #9, UK: #15, Italia: #9

Penguin Links 2(s) are Available Now!

Finally, after several months of work, and a rough release (I’ll talk about that more in a later post), iPhone games Penguin Links 2 (lite and pro) are here:

So far the response to the lite version (pro was just our for a few hours) is very positive — all 5 or 4 stars. Check out this feedback from one of my users:
Real gem! — This is a really nice upgrade from the first version. I like the cool graphics and design glow(flow). I especially love the instructions in this verison, which make the game easy to learn. I am not that into games, but this game is so smooth and pleasant and so addictive! Very nic details make the game a real gem!
It’s nice, isn’t it?
I also made a trailer for this game, …

It has been more than a year since the first version of Pair Up released on Android market. No, it’s not that we don’t love iphone, it’s just because we happen to know Java better — the primary programming language Android uses. Since the game was released, it has become such a success: hundreds of thousands downloads, thousands of reviews (you can find the reviews here ); we have to spent a lot time on fixing bugs, answering questions, adding new features, … But we have never forgotten the …
