    If you had read the article, you would have found that it is in fact way more than a simple takedown of the product. Toby does a great job of pointing out the flaws in the product—not to bash it, but to help others learn from it.

    When Wildcard launched, I had trouble understanding why I would use this product. Toby manages to describe the reason very well. But, I saw tons of very positive tweets, mostly focused on the design of the app (more specifically, the effect applied to the images) which, to me, made it seem that people were ignoring the fact that the app, at it's core, is not at all useful.

      Thanks for reading, Daniel! One of the reasons I felt compelled to write this is indeed because of all the positivity surrounding the design of the new Wildcard (what with that halftone effect and the card physics). Nobody seemed to be interested in the why behind it all.

      @Joel @Wesley In retrospect I should have used a less inflammatory title (edited accordingly now). The linked article is my own critique though, so if you're interested in the content feel free to click on.
