    Thermo-Hygrometer – no longer Free 🙁

      I thought that too, but I think it’s due to different users being in different time zones. I’m using the French AppStore for example and it’s not free for me either. Maybe it will be in a few hours, or as you already said, we just missed it and it’s no longer free.
