Not a big news week, but still some notable tidbits so let's dive in.
So it looks like we got some GP news for Australia! There may have been some other GP dates for other countries, but I couldn't find them. I'll update the article if I do.
Below is the image for all the dates in Australia (correction from earlier). Awesome news for anyone in the Australia area, or planning
to attend. It looks like several people are already planning on it, so lots to look forward to!

WILL POWER APP GONE:
So this is a unique problem for Apple users. The Will Power App is no longer available to download from the App Store. This is most likely a simple thing of
somebody not keeping up with the proper signage etc. to keep an app on the App Store, however this is a problem that has been happening for a week or 2 now
as far as I can tell, with multiple attempts to ask people involved higher up.
There hasn't been any responses. A simple 'We are aware of the problem and are
working on it' would suffice. Hopefully it gets solved, and isn't indicative of anything else outside of small mismanagement.
That's really about all the news for today, see you guys next week!
