2023 has been a phenomenal year for Mobbin, marked by significant achievements, growth, and learning. As the year draws to a close, we reflect on the journey that has brought us to this point.
It's crazy to think that at the beginning of the year, Mobbin lacked a changelog. Now in less than twelve months, we've curated a record of 17 entries, documenting the introduction of features, improvements, and fixes.
The most evident changes were visual. From refreshing our typography and colors to a complete redesign of our search experience, including the introduction of dark mode—virtually every facet of the app has been redesigned. A quick comparison between the current version of Mobbin and its earlier iterations in the changelog clearly illustrates the evolution over the past year.
In a way reminiscent of the Ship of Theseus, while the exterior of the product has undergone a nearly complete overhaul, the essence of Mobbin remains unchanged. What defines Mobbin is, without a doubt, its people.
Throughout the year, we welcomed 9 new members to our team, now spanning 6 countries and multiple time zones. Despite our modest size, our team is remarkably aligned in values, sharing an obsession for craft and customer satisfaction. This obsession propelled us to consistently deliver high-quality, comprehensive app teardowns week after week. It drove us to revamp our search and filter experience twice within a year and compelled us to create a 404 page that sparks joy.
In November, we took a collective break for our company retreat in Chiang Mai, fostering stronger connections among team members as we indulged in water activities, cooking classes, and Jackbox games.
This year has also revealed the immense passion our customers hold for Mobbin. The constant influx of feedback and suggestions each month is a testament to their expectations and the high quality they associate with us.
Looking back at what we've accomplished in 2023, we're filled with a sense of pride and confidence to strive towards our even more ambitious goals for 2024. See you in the new year!
