@brucegodin Setting your display to grey scale is a really interesting idea.
@colinwalker Definitely. Not sure I could live with it though. I found the idea that pull to refresh mimics slot machines really interesting considering I have mainly seen it as some brilliant, highly useful UI/UX that Loren Brichter created
