2013 was quite a busy year for Libon including big launches, app updates, some new languages and some new friends from around the world.
Here’s what happened in the world of Libon in 2013 in a nutshell:
Spreading the word…
To kick off the year, Libon Team flew across the Atlantic Ocean to meet Uncle Sam and spread the Libon love.
We first stopped by Las Vegas where we visited CES, then went to take a bite at the Big Apple and popped by for the New York Times Travel Show. Later in February, the team found a place in the sun at the World Mobile Congress in Barcelona.
And then came the big news.
Introducing the eagerly awaited Android version
A few months after its detonating launch in the AppStore, Libon hit the Google Play store to meet the thousands of Android users who were nicely waiting. The app had some great coverage in GigaOm, Engadget, and The Next Web, – and among others.
And the app got better and better
Throughout the year the team worked day and night to provide our users with brand new exciting updates, both on iPhone and Android. We released new features such as photo sharing, file sharing, improved the app performance and gave it a makeover to make the whole user journey even better.
Libon settled around the world
And learnt many new languages! In November 2012 Libon was speaking English, French and Spanish and thought it should not stick to that. In order to make new friends around the world, Libon learnt Dutch, Slovak, Romanian, Arabic, Polish, Russian and many more to come…
Typhoon Hayan relief
To assist relatives of those who have been affected by typhoon Hayan in November, we offered free calls to the Philippines.
Invaded the web with Libon Web
Why should we stick to mobile when there’s this promising land of opportunities called Internet?
So we released our web version of Libon in November allowing users to enjoy Libon from any mobile and browser.
Made new friends from the Middle East and Asia
So far most of our friends were from Europe, the USA and South America. We saw uplift in downloads by the end of the year 2013 and became one of the most downloaded apps in Kuwait, Qatar and met thousands of new users in India and Saudi Arabia.
We ended 2013 happy, blessed and grateful
Thanks to all of your support we had a big year with some great achievements! This is just the beginning of our story, the best is yet to come.
