  17. 17. App Option 1: Pay Someone(Did we mention it costs a lot?) CONS It costs a lot. Reliant on others for updates and changes Gap between your vision and ultimate design It costs a lot.

  19. 19. App Option 2: DIY(It’s hard. And kind of annoying.) PROS Full control of what it does and how it works. Update it and change it on your schedule It doesn’t cost a lot (unless you count the cost of your sanity).
