In this episode I take a look at true or false quiz battle which is a fun filled iOs game. This was a stream archive. I first show a few games then play against someone live and in person. it was fun. If anyone wants to play me my username is ke7zum

Looking at clean my mac 3

in this episode I take a look at clean my mac3 a program to quickly and easily clean junk out of a mac’s system. True there is only onyx and other pieces of software, how ever sometimes it’s good to have multiple tools under your belt. I upgraded and cleaned about 14 gigs out of my system before the day was done. [^1]

The software is very very accessible and I’m very very glad the developer decided to create this software. it’s more streamline and very easy to use. The software also guides you along the way in terms of what is safe to clean and what is not. I’m an intermediate computer user, how ever I make mistakes all the time.

Feedback on this or any other episode is more then welcome. Feel free to leave a comment in the Disqus forum as this will enable other users who take advantage of these podcasts to benefit from the feedback and tips as well.

[^1]: Remember to always back up your mac via time machine or back blaze, or what ever you use. It’s a safety net in case you make a mistake or somethingn is not working quite right

looking at perascope’s new interface: a tffp stream archive

In this episode I go over the new and not so streamline periscope interface. The app needs a lot of work in my opinion and the interface is too clunky to even be worth using, plus the people viewing your video and making comments are not that friendly or professional in their comments. They want to it seems take you down and keep you at an all time low.

One note. I messed up and said I was using an iphone 6 32 gig. This is not correct. I’m actually at the time of this recording using an iphone 6 64 gig. I apologize for the slip up.

I’m sure perascope will get better, but I probably will keep with meerkat as the devs are better at changing stuff and fixing accessibility issues.

Feedback is more then welcome on the eps.

looking at the new streamline interface for meerkat – a tffp stream exclusive

I continue my meerkat review by goign over the new update. The developers took time to implement accessibility changes. they admit they have a while to go yet, but so far it’s turnign out to be a good good video streaming app.

Office 2016 preview: a first look

I take a look at Microsoft office 2016 preview. The accessibility I’m sad to say is not all that good. The issue is this. The text area you typing to in the case of word is not readable with voice over. I show an example, or try to. I’d like your comments in this as I’m frustrated that this s our third try in regard to communications with Microsoft and they have yet to understand, or maybe don’t want to understand the problems we face with their apps.

What did you do after you tested this? I want to wake up with a lot of emails from the comments area stating your feedback on the accessibility or in this case lack thereof in office 2016.

Looking at the google calendar app for ios

I take a look at the google calendar app for iOs app that was just released today. It looks accessible, how ever there are a number of changes that need to be made.

  • The keys need to be echoed back when using the editors
  • The view does not need to constantly refresh
  • There is no way that i see to change the view so I can view the days in month format in the “shape” of a calendar
  • When viewing the settings, the headings sometimes don’t announce themselves

Over all though the app is fairly easy to use and set up. If these changes would be implemented we would have a good calendar on our hands.

A first impression of audio hijack pro 3

This is a first look at audiohijack which got to version 3 at the date of this recording and release of this podcast

I love the new interface changes and the intuativeness of the interface and all it can do. Any comments and feedback can be left in the comment form below.

Be blessed everyone, and happy listening.

looking at bit torrent synch for ios and osx

I take a look at bit torrent synch for both osx and iOS. there is a windows version but since I sort of don’t have a windows set up (it is virtual) there is no point in testing and reviewing it since all concepts are the same.

I start by going over the mac app in terms of settings, synching, adding a folder and viewing the history and transfers.

I then go over the iOS app in the same way, except I add a folder by scanning the QR code using iOS. Since I am not an android user you guys are on your own in terms of scanning your computer screens. I would like to hear the feedback you guys have in terms of accessibility though.

You can find the mac version here, and the iOS version here.

If you want the key for the folder I used as an example (It is read only) copy the following in to bit torrent synch

Looking at instacart

I take a look at instacart an app for iOS that allows delivery of your groceries from selected stores. These guys are expanding, so it might be in your area soon.

The app does need some accessibility work. I show this in the podcast. This podcast is designed mainly for the developers of instacart as I’m treating this as an audio version of a usability memo. Here are the key points I go over along with screen shots. This is after a bit on accessibility in ios.

  • I start out first by going over the main screen and its problems, or actually only 1 problem. There is an unlabeled button at the top left of the screen.
    picture of the main window
  • I then next search for a product and attempt to browse for it. As shown in the audio part of this the price never shows up.
    picture of the brows  window
  • I then show some search results. again this part is not usable.
    picture of some search results
  • I then end by stumbling on the main window. This is the only part I think that is usable for us.
    image of the main main screen

As seen, this app needs some improvement in terms of accessibility. A search on the applevis site will reveal some discussion on the app in question.

Any feedback on this blog post is helpful. I think I might have gotten the screenshots misaligned from the recording, but at least they will help a bit.

Feel free to share this post and leave your feedback regarding this software.
