Oh wow, I didn't see that it is not just "iOS 10 support" but full on, "You can only install this on iOS 10."

That's annoying.

To answer your question, Connor: No. You can't even purposefully accidentally install it.

Yeah... with Apple and everyone pushing "flat" as the prevailing design philosophy, they have forgotten how challenging it is to make flat look good. Compare this to the AUFX apps. Very similar design overall, but Kymatica's take is appealing.

I went through the same challenges when redesigning the site. I wanted it to look reminiscent of the old site but flatter to fit with modern design. But over the course of development I kept adding little layers, because I was bad at making a good looking "totally flat" design.
Thanks, Sarmad. Yeah... I knew they were greedy, but this change to 2.5% is insane.
LOL, good times. That's a fun read. You're really good at expressing your frustration.
I think he chose them because they're fun and inspiring, to him. Bebot has such a cult following because of how cute it is, and as a bonus it is actually quite musical.

Hey Tim, thank you for your support! Believe it or not, we spent nearly half a year to develop this probabilistic algorithm and to find a formula to calculate the complexity of a melody. @Bianca: we fixed the issue, the new version is already in review.
I actually do believe this! I remember running across the demo video for this many many months ago on my daily YouTube dive. I didn't post about it then since there wasn't a lot of context. I figured I'd just wait until you were ready.

BTW, thanks for registering. I gave your account Developer Flair to distinguish it in the comments.
LOL, yes! It took me watching it about 5 times to spot that, but I believe you're correct. Really excellent editing to get that camera exposure change to blend the loop. justwitti said on Reddit that it took him about an hour just to get the loop seamless.
LOL, thanks! I thought it was good for both fans of Archer that will get the reference, and people who don't have any idea and just see a happy lady squealing with excitement.

Oh...OK, that's kind of a cool gimmick. If I still lived near a Sam Ash, I'd probably bring an iPad with me and unlock it while there anyway.

Oh man, that is an interesting idea. I wonder if the app remembers that it has been unlocked, or if it only remains unlocked while connected to an MX keyboard.

@stub: If you can read this, question marks are now allowed in forum titles!

Let me know if you notice any other weirdness. The forums are the least tested part of the new site.

Toz Bourne suggested that a topic for the forum would be a clear explanation on how the iTunes links work here. This is a good suggestion, because I've often received emails from people who want to support the site, but aren't sure how the iTunes links actually do their thing. I've probably gotten over a hundred emails like:
"New app XXXXXX is out! Can you put up a link to it, so that you get the affiliate credit?"
I'm extremely grateful to hear people have that kind of thought for me. Even when my finances weren't struggling, I super appreciated the idea that someone would delay their purchase; to wait until they could share the revenue with me. Fortunately you don't have to wait!

By clicking any of the iTunes links here, from the device you're going to purchase on the App Store, you're setting a little identifier on iTunes.

Here is an example, this link goes to Animoog:
https://itunes.apple.com/app/id471638724?mt=8&uo;;=8&at;=11l4Kv
The &at;= signifies that my affiliate code is 11l4Kv. This code is automatically added to all links that go to iTunes from here.For the next few hours, any purchases you make will be credited to the last affiliate identifier you clicked on.

The exact way that this works has changed a few times in the past, and I'm not 100% sure how they're handling it now, but the rule of thumb is: Just click on any of my links and when that takes you to iTunes, search for the new app you want.

This also works on other things besides apps. For the next few hours if you purchase songs, TV shows, or anything else on iTunes... I'll get a cut! And my cut does not take any money from you, or the developer. My commission comes out of the 30% that Apple already takes from publishers. I'm not allowed to say how much the percentage I get is, but it's more than 5% and less than 10%.

So thank you very much to everyone that makes it a point of supporting the site by using my links! It all adds up, and is a big help to my overall income.

There is one exception to all of this though, and that's advertisers. Advertisers often have their own affiliate codes, and campaign codes, in their links. If you click on the Howl ad for instance you'll get to this link:
https://itunes.apple.com/app/apple-store/id1067562312?pt=561151&ct;;=Discchord&mt;=8
This lets developers track which ad campaigns are driving sales. Since advertiser revenue is still my primary source of income, please use ads to purchase apps you want instead of my links; so that they know their ads are working!
I resisted it for years, partly because I didn't want to moderate one, and mostly because I assumed no one was going to use it. Prove me wrong!
