  1. This might be the ugliest iOS app I’ve ever seen, but it’s stupidly fun. It’s like an expanded version of Figure. I’m actually enjoying it. Would be great if I didn’t have to LOOK at it.

    Edit: I just used this to sequence my Monologue. Holy hell this is fun.

  2. Would have bought it if it was premium app. I remember the cold shower I had with Alchemy when it was pulled out from the app store.
