It’s ugly, it breaks with my muscle-memory conventions, and frankly I have no need for it. But there it sits anyway, consuming precious storage and trying to goad me into installation with the big red circle sitting atop the “Settings” icon.

Then I demoed how you can create odd grid systems by again, modifying only a handful of variables.Add to Flipboard
