App Review: Georgie and Synaptic
We had many emails and iReports asking us to discuss these new apps while we were on our break. Steve nutt takes a moment to describe and lay out the features of Georgie. It has a 14 day trial if you find that you want to take this for a spin from the Google Play Market.
Steve, who had more time on his hands to play with apps and things, also delves into another option in this arena in his description of “Synapptic”. To learn more about this alternative , visit the official website.
Developer Interview: Mozilla Firefox
Eitan Isaacson and Marco Zehe sit down with Ana and joe to discuss the approach and the development of accessibility in Firefox for Android.
The interview spotlights how users can download the firefox betas from the Google Play market and provide the team feedback on their experiences with Androids from 4.1 all the way back to version 2.2.
And you can find out more about Mozilla at the MozillaProject website. We sincerely thank Eitan and Marco for their time and we urge everyone to download and see the tremendous efforts that have been taken to make Firefox work with Screen Readers.
Hardware Review: Droid 4
joe’s long search for a replacement handset has ended in his selection of the Motorola Droid 4. He showed it to JJ at the Summer Convention in Dallas, and through a series of events we’ve been asked not to elaborate on [but can spread rumor and conjecture about], he too now has a Droid 4. JJ and joe take some time to talk about what they like, and are eagerly hoping for in the unit’s ICS update, with the phone that sports one of the best hardware keyboards on the market.
