Mobile development is SUCH a minefield of terrible surprises. Both Android and iOS individually go to such lengths to keep developer productivity low (admittedly not on purpose, but intent doesn't matter/help in this case), and trying to build for both at the same time is just a glutton for misery and accidentally randomly losing limbs every time you accidentally step on a mine. I want to burn both systems to the ground at this point.

Smeap is the honk of a flamingo. Smeap was also at least once, a storybook land at the weird intersection of TV ads and the worlds they seem to inhabit. It was a place where wars were fought over sodas, and talking polar bears had very good reasons to guard soda machines. It was a place where rainbow color candies were harvested for electric power. It was a place where a prairie dog might move to big city inhabited mostly by Pink Flamingos to follow her dream to be private investigator, only to get slowly entangled in the seedy underbelly of crime and prohibited soda trading of the Neon Flamingos and their syndicate. Social media at times lately feels like it has become almost entirely seedy underbelly with very little upside. Maybe it needs more storybook worlds.
