"This was exactly one of those upgrades that made our tool more usable. The bigger the feature set people have at their disposal, the more they will use the tool, and the more useful it will be for them. That’s exactly what we’re looking to do with every feature upgrade that we implement, and that’s what Tiny helped us do here."
