618: Everybody Loves Serenity

Lory Gil and Mikah Sargent are joined for the first half of the show by Ryan Cash. He's the founder of Snowman — the independent software development studio responsible for wildly popular games like Alto's Adventure, Alto's Odyssey, and Circles. They talk about the past, present, and future of his company and the enormous impact iPhone and the App Store have had on the world. From there, Mikah and Lory talk about their mutual love, admiration, and respect for Serenity Caldwell. It was recently announced that Serenity has left iMore for a position with Apple's communication team. Although no one can truly replace Serenity, Lory has been promoted to managing editor of iMore. They also chat about Instagram's new Q&A feature, and Lory has the scoop on Gorilla Glass 6.
