Apps become too complicated in their pursuit of being everything to everyone. I favor brutal, yet pleasant simplicity. Utility is the superhero. Design is the sidekick.
That's why I started v1Labs, a micro app studio. Makers need nimble tools to design data visualization, manipulate images, connect apps, sell widgets, and everything in between. Enterprise do-everything solutions just don't cut it. They are far too expensive. And when they do have a needed function, it's usually not great.
