Three 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. There was no opportunity to jump in or out of this endless conversation, add comment to a link that was shared a couple of hours ago or filter discussions by topics. Oh, and no search as well.
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.
It’s no doubt that mobile gaming (read smartphones) is as important to developers and publishers as mature console and desktop markets. While iOS is truly a leader among mobile platforms in entertainment and gaming domain, studios try to encompass each and every market to milk additional revenue, increase brand awareness and other marketing perks.
Android is a great platform, which is getting extremely popular. In fact so popular, that according to ComScore, Android has topped iOS in the US. No wonder many popular titles have been brought from iOS to Android devices. Many developers select Unity as a technology to port their games to multiple platforms. Furthermore, many of the paid apps in the AppStore are completely free on Android Market. Let’s check out five free and excellent android games built with the help of Unity.
There are a lot of companies out there fighting for the right to be your software solution solver. We at Heyworks believe relations between a client and a software provider should be as those in the family: sincere, strong and supportive. Let us tell what each client means for Heyworks.

Dozens of companies are looking for a full-time or contractor developer, designer, etc. A great part of them is ignoring software companies providing dedicated professionals with the explanation that they need a freelancer or a contractor and not interested in companies. What’s the reason behind it?
Most of people have false assumptions about software dev companies. They say it’s risky, too far away and expensive. However, going with a freelancer bears the same threats to project success and sometimes even more.
Selecting a company (assuming you work under dedicated team model) as your next vendor has several advantages over freelancers:
1. Companies provide their professionals with an ideal environment (top performance computers, software licenses, “knowledge sharing” Intranet etc);
