It’s been a while since I’ve posted about an update, so we’ll backtrack a little here to get up to speed. Since the last post about version 1.4, I’ve added full support for Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich tablets and phones, made the app entirely accessible for blind and visually impaired users, and fully tested (and fixed the rough edges) on a shiny new Samsung Galaxy Nexus.
I had the pleasure of working with J.J. Meddaugh of AndroidAccess.net to identify which parts of the app would need modified to make it fully accessible to blind users, and I’m happy to say that we were successful in making the app completely accessible for use with a screen reader. J.J. was kind enough to post an accessibility review that documents everything here:
I’m also excited to say that Android Tapp has also reviewed the app! Toni McQuilken reviewed the app as a “no frills” app that “works perfectly.” You can read the review here:
Finally, I’ve trimmed all rough edges for the app’s experience on the new Samsung Galaxy Nexus (running Android 4.0). The majority of things worked as expected due to my testing on the Android emulator, but there were a few surprise bugs that needed squashed. Regardless, the experience is better than ever on a Samsung Galaxy Nexus.
Thanks everyone! Enjoy the app and let me know if you have any suggestions. :)
