Gridbox Store App Just Around The Corner

In order to create something truly powerful and awesome needs a lot of time and a strong platform. So all previous updates were part of a big puzzle. We developed our own Comment System, Reviews, we created the Zero App with custom fields, and much more. As a result, we have our own ecosystem. All this was done in order to take an important huge step - to create the Store App and make it complete and self-contained.
