Here we are, the Mobile World Congress began this morning.
We met a lot of interesting people today!
The team who took the boat yesterday evening from Ajaccio arrived in the late afternoon due to difficult weather conditions. But everyone is here now, and really excited!
Tomorrow, we'll take a little more time to make an entire tour of the event, and prepare more focused blog posts. We'll focus on monetization, as we met a lot of ad networks at MWC, and on new devices.
We'll try to take some more general pictures of the entire event.
To follow us out of this blog, you can find us on Flickr , on Instagram (@goodbarber ), on Twitter (@goodbarber ) and on our Facebook page :)
See you tomorrow !

Here we are! At last, we managed to get to Barcelona for the Mobile World Congress! Not an easy task, due to the bad weather :/
For this trip, we splitted our team in two. Jerome and I took the plane this morning from Ajaccio by Lyon. Sebastien, Laurent, Jim & Mathieu took the boat this evenning to Marseille, and will drive tomorrow morning to BCN.
There was snow this morning in Ajaccio, Corsica, and we were not sure that the plane could take off. The flight has been delayed more than two hours, but eventually everything went fine. We took our connecting flight in Lyon, and, we got to BCN :)
This year, the event sounds awesone, and the new venue, Fira Gran Via, is far bigger than Fira Montjuic where it took place last years.
The GoodBarber booth is awesome too! Enjoy some pictures :)
If you are heading to MWC this year, come to say hello in Hall 5, French Pavillon, Booth 5I100/55.

Since this morning, we have met a lot of people. Each time, they give us great ideas to improve GoodBarber.
If it's true that we are not experts of the radio ecosystem, there are great chance that will become killers and the end of Le Radio!
Just one evidence: we are "nominé" for the On'R awards.
Here are some pictures of Le Radio :)

GoodBarber has developped 25 connectors (and counting) to retrieve your articles, photos, videos, events, sounds, tweets, …well, you get the idea :)
Use them to put all your content at your users's fingertips.
The idea is simple. From your backend, different sections can be created in your app. Each section corresponds to a type of content. Behind each section is linked a source.
Here is the list of the supported external services. Keep in mind that this list is growing.

With GoodBarber, everybody can create Beautiful Apps. But, being able to provide a software empowering everybody to create a Beautiful App is a long and ambushed way.
Our technical team is composed by passionate people. Talented mobile developers, experienced network and system engineers, mighty web developers. To build and run GoodBarber, everyday we have to solve complex problems, mainly due to the industrial trait of our product. GoodBarber powers millions of apps, installed, updated, and used all day long.
We would like to share with you - the geek ones ;) - the solutions we find in order to face the issues we come across every day.
Every article published under the "Engineering" serie will deal with an accurate topic regarding iOS, Android, Python, etc..
It could also talk about a generic process that was set up to maintain GoodBarber's industrial trait.
In this blog, over time, and each time we can do it, we will try to explain what's behind the scene and share GoodBarber's bag of tricks.

Bloggers, this theme is for you. Use it to unify your web presence.
It was especially crafted for those publishing a high volume of content : news, videos, photos, podcasts, etc.
Looking at the root view, you see that our designer chose a tab bar for the navigation. But you notice that Blow has also a sub-navigation, with a "circle band", at the top of the screen. Very useful to offer a clear navigation among a lot of content.
In the detailed view, the tool bar is at the bottom. Select the option you want to propose. In this exemple, comments, sharing, font size and add to faves are enable.
Blow is one of the 50+ themes available in your GoodBarber backend. Use it as a starting point to create your Beautiful App.

It's been exactly once week now, since we have widely opened GoodBarber 2 beta to the public.
We are very exited because, everyday, many of you try it and give their feedback. It helps us to speed up the pace to stabilize GoodBarber 2, so that it is rolled out earlier than expected.
Thanks to your experienced tests, we were able to publish last tuesday the first update of GoodBarber 2. Here is the changelog of what's new :
