As always, there are lots of things happening at Mobiata, including one really big change – we’ve moved offices! Right now, we’re in the process of moving to the amazing, historic Nickels Arcade. If you are not familiar with Ann Arbor, Nickels Arcade is an 261-foot-long arcade built in 1918 and has a beautiful gallery roofed with a gable skylight with metal and glass panels. It’s been a key part of Ann Arbor since its completion, and we’re really excited to call it our new home. For those of you who keep asking about iPad versions of our apps and new features to our existing apps, you’ll be happy to know that Comet Coffee is near our office and with help from their amazing coffee, we’ll probably be up coding half the night. It’s so good, and it’s that strong. So watch out for a healthy dose of caffeine-fueled app updates!
One of the coolest parts of the new space is the decorations we’ve been able to get from our friends at the Detroit Metro Airport. We were allowed in to the old Smith Terminal of the airport to salvage some pieces for our new space. It was amazingly hot since there was no air conditioning — plus the occasional dead bird made the scavenge interesting — but Team Mobiata came away with some amazing objects for our new space. Here are some pictures of the mission.
So let us know if you are headed to Ann Arbor and maybe we can meet you for a cup of coffee at Comet, and we’ll show off Nickels Arcade.
As always, thanks for being part of the Mobiata community and for your continued support.
