Looks cool! More social perhaps? It’s felt a bit too much like remote storage with a few bells and whistles up until now, so anything that makes it easier to connect or showcase your stuff, is welcome.


I follow way too many people to keep track of things so I hope workflow will improve. I’ve been wanting to create playlists/sets of favorites for a long time so I’m excited to see the way sets work. So far all the improvements look smashing.
