Grobo Software Updates Thread

Hey everyone!

We want to keep more organized with app updates so we’ve decided to create a single thread to post all software updates to. Hopefully this makes it a little easier to find and keep up-to-date with what has been recently released.

This thread will be locked to commenting for organization but a new Software Update Comments Thread has been created. Please use this thread to post any questions or comments you have regarding any recent releases.
