The Clap is Driving Me Crazy!

After clapping for a few days, I have found it to be terribly awkward. For example, on a smart phone, I’ve discovered that I might have the option to bestow a heart, but most often it is a single clap. On the computer, I can clap until my heart’s content — 50 being the maximum. Since this new method of showing appreciation for our stories is so inconsistent from one device to the other, I have decided that when at all possible, instead of clapping erratically from 1–50, I will give a single clap for a piece I truly appreciate and 10 claps for one that captivates me.
