Check out Sheena Allen's interview with The Phat Startup. Allen was interviewed by The Phat Startup's co-founder, Anthony Frasier.
"Sheena Allen has an app company with over 2 million downloads. She is a single founder, and she started with no knowledge of how to code. Sheena just had a problem, and wanted to solve it. Sounds familiar right? Most founders start off with a story like that, but the odds were always against her.
Sheena comes from a small town in Mississippi. There was no tech scene, no meetups, no nothing. She basically used Google, and began her journey from there.
In this brief interview we talk about: How she got started, what it was like being a founder with no experience, what it’s like to be a black female in the tech industry, and more."

PicSlit - Banner and Tile for Instagram
An update for PicSlit for Android is now available. In the past, users had numerous issues with the in-app purchase to upgrade to the full version of PicSlit. For that reason, we now have two separate versions available for PicSlit - one free; one paid. We have completely eliminated the option for in-app purchase.
In addition to now having two separate versions, the new and improved PicSlit now offers a tile option. Before the update, PicSlit only offered the option for a banner, which means that the user could only slit one picture. With the tile option, users can now slit 2 or more pictures.
