If Apple continues pursuing perfection relentlessly and brings us products with innovation, joy and excitement, that’s the best proof for its existence.
Terms of Services is a necessary part for applications, but how many people would read them? If we make them look nicer, will more people look at them? I do not have a good idea so far.
