Not as productive as I feel I need to be! Some coding and organisational stuff on the dev project, sent out a new build of Show and Hide on iOS and made a bit more progress. Also got dependency injection going throughout the Android app, which unlocks a bunch of improvements).

A new edition of Technically Speaking is out.
