That's great. I think this is a great example of why we should list
out the apps individually. It would be unfortunate if users didn't
subscribe simply out of a lack of awareness.
Priscilla's mock-up of the Subscribe / Add pull-down would allow us
to do this without cluttering up the UI.
Thx for the info Jared,
