My “App” Problem

“I Have a Problem” I am an app junkie.  There, I said it.  Isn’t that one of the twelve steps, admitting your problem?  At last check, I have downloaded over 250 apps through the App Store.  I have a problem.  I like to think that I am an “App Beta Tester”.  So I have compiled a […]
