Day 7 - Morning:
My last day with host family. I tried wax apple and it is now my new favorite fruit. We went out and had pastries for breakfast. They then took me to the lake to see some scenery and we rode bikes all the way around. We saw some great wild life:) We took a boat ride and then drove up the mountain to see the largest temple in Yilan. It was 50 years old and magnificent. There was an old lady who was “possessed” by a god and was drinking and laughing and throwing candy everywhere. It was awesome.
I’m hopeful that Apple making per-app battery usage visible to the end user in iOS 8 will be the push that developers need to start paying closer attention to how their apps consume power, and when.

100% agree. Are smartphone batteries perfect? No. Are smartphone OSes perfect with regard to battery life? Certainly not. But poorly developed apps are often to blame for many battery woes and now we’re going to see which are the worst. And we shall shame them into doing better.
