Wait spinner: Since Letterpress has to load the current game state from the web, a user will see the wait spinner pretty often. The Letterpress wait spinner is the company's logo. This has long-term brand benefits. But also it's cute and well-executed. Every 8 turns, it randomly spins backwards to give it some personality. This is apparently in reference to the company's name (atebits = 8 bits).
It was a bit after midnight (which was technically October 21), but since it was so close to the previous day, Siri wanted me to clarify which “tomorrow” 9am I really meant… 9am on the 21st (which was technically wrong, but it was what I wanted), or 9am on the 22nd (which would have been technically correct but not what I wanted).
