3D Solar System For iPhone and Hasbro my3D Viewer is Out!

Posted on Nov 16, 2011 | 1 comment

We are excited to let you know that 3D Solar System application for iPhone is already out! You can lay your eager hands and eyes on your Hasbro my3D Viewer to take a journey throughout our solar system and explore all planets and many moons in a beautiful as-real-as-it-can-get 3D setting. It’s a great way to learn more about the small part of the universe we all inhabit and take a virtual tour on your own spaceship. If you have an exploration urge, don’t hold back – get 3D Solar System in the AppStore and push the thrust button.

If you need some visual motivation here are the screenshots and video demos:

It’s been fantastic to collaborate with Reason Interactive on 3D Solar System and we are amazed by the great feedback we are hearing! If you want an independent opinion, Luke Patrick with iPhone App Review has a very detailed outline of the app.

Have you piloted your spaceship around our solar system? What’s been your experience? Please share with us in the comments!

What was your first PC game?

Posted on Jul 21, 2011 | 0 comments

This week Heyworks team has gathered to recollect and share memories about our favorite games we played when we still were kids. As our team members have age difference up to 7 years, we came up with totally different titles and “older” generation was surprised that younger crew hasn’t played Digger or Gobliiins saga.

Join us and slip back into the past with a list of games we all truly enjoyed and that bring us nostalgic memories of our x286s, CGA/EGA resolutions or first Pentiums.

Why Small Businesses Should Use Yammer

Posted on Jul 11, 2011 | 3 comments

Yammer LogoThree weeks ago Heyworks started using Yammer. Some of us (read me) were tired of a decent sized chat group on Skype and constant notifications popping up as people would share a link to a must-watch youtube video or just asked how everyone was doing.

Here comes Yammer. After initial co-workers resistance and overall disbelief that we need “another social tool”, and  3 weeks test-drive I can tell you everyone loves Yammer. How do I know? You can create polls on Yammer as well. Here are 7 good reasons to bring your team to Yammer. And while you are getting convinced, do yourself a favor and get Yammer for your own company.
