  • 6.13 We have updated the user homepage (we still have some tweaking to do). Overall, we wanted everything below the "about me" box to be lists and to make room for a whole extra column of lists --now there's three. This is in preparation for something fun we're working on for the future. We know change is hard...but hopefully you'll love that all your lists are in one area and all else is above.

Eventually we'll let you add images from other websites to your lists steps! Note: PLEASE update your iPhone app when prompted. You won't be able to add images via your iPhone just yet...but we're working on that next.
