The response online to the iPhone X has been mostly positive and we love ours. The new gesture based interface has definitely made me rethink how I interact with my phone and I'm excited to see how it grows.
A bit off topic but this week we wrote about how we manage and automate a lot of the responsibilities in our life with Airtable. You can read about it here and get a head start on your personal dashboard with the template we've created.
Have a great week!
