14-year-old kid's Bubble Ball app downloaded < 2 million times, but it doesn't make me feel small, no sir

Jenny told me about this NPR newslet (or whatever they call the amusing items they read before they get to the heavy shit). Young Robert Nay’s clever little game is a wonderful example of the reach simple, creative programming can have. It’s fun is why.

Of course if they start requiring in-app purchases to advance past tricky levels, I will be the first one to savage them in the app store reviews.
