It’s that time of the year when everyone starts to frantically buy Christmas lottery. It is a tradition that has been around for years and years and no one wants to be left out. It is usual that offices, gyms, coffee shops, supermarkets,etc. offer small participations and of course, hard core followers buy their own lucky numbers. There seems to be a general feeling that not buying one wherever you go could mean that you are left out in the biggest prize available (El gordo).
If you are not from Spain and would like to check out how big this is, you can watch our TV commercial from this year, which I don’t particularly like, and from the previous year (which was a masterpiece) – It seems the Spanish lottery has fallen into a Windows like type cycle, one good version and one bad version 😉 –
This year’s TV commercial:
The previous one:
The point is that many people end up with lots of number and they have to check to see if they have won a prize. Thanks to technology, this is easier as there are webpages where you can input all the numbers and see if you have scored a lucky one. The problem is that in the end you end up retyping the same numbers again and again. With all the technological advancements we have, and having such processing power in our pockets, there had to be a simpler way we could do better. So, I teamed up with Fran, who works with me at Wave and is an awesome Android developer, to build an App that would simplify this.
I took charge of the iOS version, and he worked on the Android counterpart. The result is a visually appealing App that allows you to:
Check individual numbers easily
Saves all your history of checked numbers so that you can check them all at once.
Allows you to view the state of the raffle and all the prizes at just a glance.
The App is available on iOS and Android, and you can check it out today!
We hope you enjoy it and find it useful!

We wish you the best of luck and a very happy Christmas!
Following our trend of delivering the best possible performance and features for our ever-growing user base, we have decided to create a cool iOS 10 today widget. You can add this to your main screen and easily access your waves with just a tap.
This latest release also comes with revolutionizing battery performance and a much improved under the hood contacts management.
Take for it a spin and check out the massive overhaul!
We are currently getting ready to announce extremely cool features, stay tuned 😉
I just wanted to drop a quick line to let you know that you can now download from the App Store the latest update for Wave. This is a special update as we have made vast improvements under the hood to give you the best possible experience. We have also scoured through the iOS 10 features and documentations to see what we could use to make the App more robust and efficient, and thanks to that we are now fully iOS 10 compliant.
One of the new features we have implemented is interative notifications. From now on, when someone accepts one of your Wave requests, you can simply swipe the notification down to see where the person is, wherever you are in the system. You can see a screenshot below.

After receiving a number of requests from people who wanted to try MemoPark Ultimate before buying it, I have made a free version of the App called MemoPark Free. This App contains all the features of the ultimate version, but will only allow you to save 5 locations. After that it will ask you to download the paid version. This way you can get a taste of the efficiency, the powerful and easy to use features, and the eye-popping design of the best way to find your car ;). Hope you enjoy it!
For those out there interested, we are hiring at Wave :)! This is a great chance to join one of the fastest growing startups, with a young talented team willing to take on huge new challenges.

As you know, we launched our Crowdfunding campaign on Crowdcube on the 16th of August. This was a really important milestone for us, because Wave has always been about you, our user. We have strived and worked as hard as we could possibly ever do to bring you the ultimate location tool to find your family and friends: One that was simple to use, attractive and as private as it could get. We wanted to ensure that you could use it at your heart`s contempt, knowing your data is tightly secure and that the system is rock solid. This is why crowdfunding was so important for us, if everything we do is for you, we wanted YOU to become as part of our company, to share our vision and help us take Wave as far as possible. We made a cool video to tell you all about it.
To say the campaign has been a success would be an understatement. In just a week we managed to reach overfunding, and we stand at this date with very impressive figures as you can see in the following screenshot.
We have been featured in many articles, highlighting our success, below is just a selection of them:
