Greetings and welcome back to our show. This time we have another fantastic Developer Interview, another hardware Review and a few more surprises.
In The News:
App Review: Acapela voices
Steve takes the group on a tour of the new Accapella TTS voices for Android. He’ll explain why he finds these voices better than other options available on the Play Market. To learn more about these voices, visit the Google Play Store page
Developer Interview: BookShare
Ana and J.J chat with Bookshare’s Vice President of Engineering Gerardo Capiel about the development process behind the successful Go Read app. The discussion doesn’t stop there as we learn more about Google’s “Summer of Code” and a story about how an intern added his own unique contribution to the Bookshare project. Also, learn about what the “Social Coding For Good” initiative is and how it is playing a big role in where things are going in the future for Bookshare.
App review: Ana and Go Read
Ana takes us on a trip around the Go Read app. And she reveals what popular book series she is reading as well. Take a listen to find out more about this amazing app and Ana’s reading habits.
Hardware Review: Galaxy S3 on Verizon
Two episodes in a row with an actual hardware review. It’s a shame we are running out of hosts who need to renew their hardware contracts. We may have to find more ways to get J.J. to fall into more pools at conventions in order for us to score more of these reviews! This time Joe is here with a phone he stole away from his wife. The Samsung Galaxy S III is the new hot phone to have and we find out more about it in this hardware overview. Check out this Wiki page for the Galaxy S III to learn more about which carriers support the phone in its various flavors and configurations.
