Mental status: grapefruit
I'm going to level with you here. I'm not doing very well. I know it's been a literal year since the last update, but my life has taken a dramatic turn. I've been focusing on a new risky startup without pay for the past year. I quit my day job thinking this was the right move. Time will tell. My gf left me and now I'm basically alone. We might not have been right for each other, I'm not sure. Time will tell. I still have a supportive family, so that's nice. If you want, I'd like it a lot if you could send me an email with some words of encouragement. If this app has ever helped you get you through some tough times, let me know. Thanks. Send your love to firstname.lastname@example.org

Other little tweaks here and there for a nice, smooth meme browsing experience.
Please post more spooky skeletons for spooktober.
A lot has changed and I'm pretty sure you'll enjoy it.
Scrolling left and right to browse memes on the home page was fun, but it just wasn't typical. So I changed it to a vertical layout.
Memes on Popular are sorted by dates thanks to the vertical layout.
Uploader usernames appear on thumbnails under feeds with people you follow.
A little badge will appear on the bottom home screen for unseen notifications.
You can take your thumb now and swipe from left to right to open the side drawer to select feeds.
You can trim the start and end length of any videos you select in the app.
Share to Instagram was all messed up, now it resizes and uses the least possible amount of whitespace.
Gifs will auto play in camera roll as you go to select them in the photo picker.
Can now use the camera in the app to take photos/videos and make memes out of them without leaving the app.
The builders dubbed "Templates" accept both videos and images. It didn't make sense to have two separate tools for each format.
You can upload your memes to your account straight from the builder screens after you generate them.
I updated my rating for Lexington. It is no longer a 7 out of 10 place to live, work and lern. Now it's a 6 for unnamed reasons.
