This week emphasizes usability fixes and updates on features that have been out for a while. We take pride in our features and products we have released, and this week we took a lot of extra time to make sure we improved usability and quality of life on a wide range of features. One big achievement has been changing one of our least popular features — the add and edit time modals. We have completely revamped them and made them far far easier to use.

A lot of time was also spent speeding up slower features and screens on the app and website. We are always looking to increase performance, especially if something feels slow. Please message us (through intercom or email me: daniel@tryplayground.com) if you find anywhere our app is moving slowly.
