    Hi Josh

    Love your posts.

    How about Pure as an improvement on Camera ? Better than Camera+, I reckon.

    Incidentally, I think Ecoute is pronounced aycoot rather than ecowt. It’s French for ‘listen’, and if it had the accent on the end would be pronounced aycootay.

    Why make us watch a video with NO TEXT alternative. Bad form.

    Hi Josh

    I have Clear and Dark Sky. I love Dark Sky and even showed to my cousins and loved it too. Very accurate.

    I also have these apps like Camera! which has a timer so taking selfie is not a problem even for group pictures. Another one is Slice where I get notifications whenever my online orders are delivered thus making me rush infront of the door to take the package, lol. And the Runtastic Pro is a very useful as an exercise app whether running or walking.

    So these are the apps I can share with you. Check them out.
