Hi, guys! Mandi here. Ranking among my favorite decor trends this year is definitely the light-up kitchen sign. I adore the neon lights and vintage beer clocks, but something that most of us can afford and appreciate is a light-up... Continue reading

If you close out of the app you'll lose your photos. For a really long project you'll need to wait for the importing update. :)) Thanks! Elsie

Hi Cassandra, Yes- For minor scuffs I would use a magic eraser (or just soap and water with a sponge) but for more major stuff you'll want to use white shoe polish to keep them looking clean. :) I've gotten my other pairs wet on accident and to get the water spots off I just wash them with a damp washcloth and let them dry evenly. :) -Elsie

Chess pie is not something I grew up eating. In fact, until this year I'd never even heard of it. They started serving a more traditional version of it at one of our favorite coffee shops in town, and I... Continue reading

Hi Lary! At this time, we don't have a version for Android. Sadly, our ABM Android release did not meet our goals last year. We'd love to try again in the future, but right now it's too risky. Thank you so much for your support! :) - Jacki

Melinda, I think it would be sturdy enough for all that stuff, it really is sturdier than it looks! -Josh
Oh man, negative 12?! Don't worry, we'll get you in the green soon enough. -Josh

I totally understand! They're definitely an investment piece. I've been wearing one of my t-strap pairs for more than three years, though, so they do stand the test of time. :) There is such a great divide (in both pricing and quality) between brands like this and fast fashion brands you can buy at the mall. We really appreciate your feedback and thank you so much for reading!! Elsie

Kate, maybe after a hundreds of years give or take. We own a kitchen table thats just hardwood ply from the 60s and its still straight. -Josh
Thanks Julia! Good luck with your house buying, owning one rules because you can do whatever you want to it. -Josh

We're fully aware of the market share, though your numbers are worldwide. In the U.S., it's more like 52% Android / 41% iOS, which makes up the bulk of our reach. That said, the market share numbers still made a lot of sense. But even worldwide, the App Store generates 85% more revenue than Google Play. (http://finance.yahoo.com/news/why-app-store-generated-85-172402782.html) And our numbers were even more drastic. We sold 95% less on Android than iOS. We don't have a good explanation for why the App Store and Google Play differ so dramatically. So we're not saying it can't make enough money. We're saying it didn't in our experience, so it's a very risky move for us. And to address your latter point, it's more expensive to develop because of all of the device types. iOS has 4 screen sizes and about a dozen device types to consider, whereas Android has literally hundreds of screen sizes and thousands of devices to consider. But obviously, it's not impossible. It just has more unique challenges. All this said, the Android market continues to grow, and we're definitely paying attention. If we can make it make sense, we will absolutely do it. It sucks letting people down, so we're actively looking for ways in which we don't have to. -Trey

We have, and it still raises too many challenges. First, at the highest level, we would feel uncomfortable requesting reader donations to fund something we deemed too risky for our own investment. But beyond that, once you get it into the logistics, it gets really challenging. E.g., Android doesn't have a way to issue promo codes for your own app, so we wouldn't even be able to give the app to those who donated. We're still thinking on it and watching the photography category of Google Play really closely to find the right opportunity to make something happen. I know we sound like a broken record, but seriously thank you so much for the unapologetic support for our ideas! We talk about Android almost every day, because of people like you. -Trey

Ashley, good question! If you cover any latex or oil paint with two or three coats of poly it should hold to wear for years to come. -Josh
Hayley, I would love to see a picture of it. If it's online somewhere leave me a link! -Josh
