last activity, it would also make the home view feel more personalized. For
scalability we could try something akin to OSX spaces or iOS, adding
additional screens that kids can pan between as the collection of activities
I don't disagree with the premise--I just think that there is a better

already existing comps from a year or two ago that we can leverage and bring
