It was an eventful day and we heard a lot of messages of congratulations, feedback and of course, we also had support issues.  The entire Shortcovers team is working hard to address the feedback and support issues with new, mobile app updates, a new web build, and thousands of new titles being loaded each day. 

All in all, an eventful day but just the first of many for Shortcovers!
