According to John Scalo, Numerous cofounder, “The ability to get real-time updates and notifications from Google Sheets, Tesla, and goings-on in space such as SpaceX rocket launches, moon phases, and eclipses — these are great additions to Numerous, but the bigger story for us is a new architecture that allows us to add new channels to the app without having to deal with app updates, which entail lengthy review processes through Apple’s App Store.
