I'm Justin. I've lived in Japan since 2002 and I'm married to my Japanese wife (lovingly called "Spellchecker"). I've taken the JLPT tests up to L1 and I'm still going. I speak, read and write Japanese fluently and I'm an overactive developer who really should relax a little more.

What's new in version 4.01
iCloud bug fixes.
