[] San Francisco, California – Mark Morford, HowHuman Inc, and Sofi Software LLC are pleased to announce the immediate availability of the new app “Mark Morford’s Apothecary” for iPhone in the App Store, packed with stimulating and provocative compositions and wild love. The app is a sublime, hilarious, barely contained, mostly Free mega-treasury of articles, advice and lifestyle adjustment from Mark Morford, the SF Chronicle’s award-winning columnist and culture critic, and author of The Daring Spectacle.

Apothecary unapologetically delivers:
* Hundreds of Mark’s best and most popular columns from the SF Chronicle, SFGate and beyond, fully searchable

Apothecary incorporates lovingly detailed art and design to deliver a whimsical verbal and visual joyride befitting the author’s irreverent and iconoclastic world view. The “Insta-Quote Picker” supplies pithy and thought-provoking excerpts from Mark’s extensive catalog, suitable for social sharing with Facebook and Twitter. “Under-The-Counter Prescriptions” are an entertaining and diverting way to find a topical column by mood; or if the reader prefers keyword search, that is available in the “Over-The-Counter” section. The “Rx – Personal Recommendations” feature is the smartphone equivalent of a candy dispenser, if candy were trenchant wit.
