20150624_0

In the past few months, MailTime has kept a low profile. MailTime 1.0 was good, but it wasn’t great, which made us reluctant to spend time and effort marketing an app they may not like now, when we could market a more likable one after the update.

Hey guys, if you happen to be around the soma area of San Francisco, be sure to stop by our office. Just so you know we just moved to this amazing loft with really dope murals all over the wall (Honestly if you are in soma, you know where it is!)

Since we are on the first floor right now, it’s easier for us to breathe and skate on the streets now. We decided to give away free drinks on Freelon Street where our office is . We call this “Pay your drink with a download”. It’s actually more of a fun thing to do than a promotion for us.

We just want to say hi to the new neighbourhood. So if you are around, take a coke and talk to us! Continue reading We are Giving Away Free Drinks at the New MailTime Office!
