Svpply created navigation patterns that have been widely used (overused?) since, but at they time the app was as fresh as it gets. When iOS7 showed up, the app was already right at home. With zero updates in two years, it still feels absolutely current today.

So number one, Reading Rainbow was not cancelled because it was not effective. Reading Rainbow was the most used television resource in our nation’s classroom. In 2009, it was [cancelled] due to No Child Left Behind. That government policy made a choice between teaching the rudiments of reading and fostering a love of reading. So the idea that I am trying to somehow revive a failed endeavor is bullshit. That’s right. I said it. Bullshit.
