Two years since our last post

We know, we know: two years is a long time between blog postings. We didn’t go away, we’ve just had a lot going on.  And while many things have remained the same, a lot of new stuff has been happening too. So, the past two years in brief, we continue to develop the Tellybug app platform […]
