    Projects

    • VI6WS

      Dec, 2014Sep, 2016

      Made an app for a friend who knows Drake. It allowed you to take photos, decorate them with various Drake/OVO-themed watermarks, and then export them to your camera roll or to social media. Drake played with it and, according to a text from my friend, "bro the boy loved the app".
