    Thanks for posting Chris. These look like some great apps, and I think I might check out Solve The Outbreak and Rich Notes when I get home from my shift at DISH tonight. I would also like to suggest another app that brightened my year; it’s called DISH Anywhere. I use it to stream live TV or DVR recordings to my phone. I found that it is a great way to pass the time in places like the DMV and the doctor’s office.
