Subject Re: [TDF Mobile] Releasing TDF Mobile
Date Thu, 02 Apr 2015 02:59:21 GMT
Since Tour De Flex has "Flex" in it, a search for Flex might be okay. 
But another of my concerns would be that typing Flex in the Play Store 
makes us compete with a lot of "gym" and other applications.. it's just 
a very common word. Linking to Apache gives it some distinction. Just my 
thoughts on the topic.
