The sometimes daily updated news
Well hi there! This morning we held our second breakfast seminar of many great to come. A number of happy and hungry visitors came to our office eager to learn something new and maybe get some ideas of their own. Together we took a morning snack and a seat to listen to our Head of UX, Rogier Beeftinks take on how to solve the puzzle of multi screens. Also Joakim Oscarsson, User Experience Strategist at Apegroup, gave everybody a little tease on what’s to come on one of our upcoming events. Let’s just say he talked about something that hopefully BLEw people away.
All in all it was a very educational and fun seminar and we are looking forward to the next one already!
We want to say thank you to everyone who showed up and give a big round of applause to our speakers Rogier and Joakim.
Oh! Sorry about the pictures. The caffeine hadn’t kicked in…
On Thursday the 26th Mobile Health Summit is held at Bygget Fest & Konferens and of course we are sending one of our apes there!

You can find tickets and more info on the event right here.
This monday, Apegroup invited more than 60 developers and designers for a CocoaHeads meetup dedicated to the upcoming Apple iOS 7 for iPhones and iPads. The soon to be released operating system which is in beta for registered developers, takes a drastic new look and approach to user interface design and provides developers with new frameworks and workflows.
While the attendees enjoyed a couple of beers and some wraps, our own über-apes Alek and Veronica held presentations about what’s new for developers and a case study of transforming an old iPhone app to the latest and greatest. And we must say they did a fantastic job!
Among the external speakers were Max Rudberg talking about how to approach iOS 7′s new design language and Nevyn doing live-programming of a game using Apple’s new game framework SpriteKit. Many thanks goes out to the CocoaHeads Stockholm organizer Marthin Freij for letting us host the event.
And another thing… As soon as the NDA lifts, we’ll upload a video of the whole shebang!
“I think last night probably was one of my favorite CocoaHeads so far. Great speakers, great topics! Nevyns presentation was pure joy, a stand-up version of real time coding” – Satisfied guest

The TV3, TV6 & TV8 Play for Android has been live in three Scandinavian countries (Sweden, Norway, Denmark) for quite some time now. A little while ago we rolled out the application in three more countries. So from now on Estonians, Lithuanians and Latvians will also be able to watch their favorite shows whenever and wherever they want!
We are very proud of our team here that has worked together with McDonald’s UK to produce their brand app on iPhone and Android. Currently they are having a really cool campaign, that we integrated into the core app, which gives you a chance to win a free iced fruit smoothie!
Without revealing too much, we can say that we are using weather API’s and parallaxing layers…
If you’re in the UK you should really give it a go. And if you’re not? You probably should look it up anyway.
We would like to take a moment and give a big welcome to our latest find Björn Wahlberg! Other than beeing a man in his prime with social skills like none other, he will spend his days at Apegroup as our System Architect. We are truly looking forward to seeing him work his magic around here. Watch out now!
