If I had to pick what my three favorite releases this week were, I’d have to go with Akri, Eucnide, and RedesignedNotifications, but I’d also have to give a shout out to App Admin for being incredibly useful when an app developer launches an application update that you’re not so comfortable with and want to go back to a previous version.
