On behalf of the whole TheWinDuck team I’d like to thank all of you – readers, partners, press agencies and firms – for a great 2016 for TheWinDuck and we wish you all the best for the future! We really are honoured by your trust, support and loyalty and we can’t wait to see what 2017 brings along for all of us both here on the blog as well as in the tech world in general – Valentin and I are sure it’s going to be a very exciting year as we’re planning great new projects for this site as well as our YouTube channel!
But before thinking about what next year has to offer, let’s take a look back at this year which for our site and YouTube channel has been a very succesful period. Since the introduction of TheWinDuck 2.0 our blog has attracted more than four times as many visitors compared to the year before and our articles have been read more often than ever before. Speaking of which, here are our most read articles of 2016.
Our YouTube channel also saw some substantial growth during 2016. With almost 400 new subscribers the 700 subscriber milestone is in reach and we’re always happy to see new faces in our subscribers list so please make sure to check out our YouTube channel for videos mainly about Windows 10 (Mobile), Windows phones and tablets/notebooks. Especially thanks to our very succesful Asus Zenbook Flip UX360CA review our videos have now been watched over 374’000 times.
And also our latest addition to TheWinDuck family – the Universal Windows 10 app – has been a great success! The app which you can download here is now running on almost 200 Windows 10 devices and will soon be updated with Xbox support as well.
Dario TheWinDuck’s Highlights
Here are some of my highlights of 2016.
This year I visited for the first the International Funkausstellung in Berlin and was able to check out all the latest and greatest tech products from various companies – including Microsoft. This was definitely a memorable experience!
Another highlight for me was of course the launch of our TheWinDuck app – developed by Valentin – which provides access to all of our news articles and reviews and even YouTube videos. You can download it here for free.
Many great review units
Last but not least, I’ve also been able to review many interesting devices including the Lumia 950 XL, the Surface Book and more.
Here is one of Valentin’s highlights of the year.
Valentin was lucky enough to attend a #WINsiders4Good event in Cologne where he not only got to meet many great Windows Insiders but also was able to play around with HoloLens (yes, I’m jealous 😉 )
That’s it for this year – we wish you all a happy year!
Dario TheWinDuck and Valentin
