Steve and Joe drew the short straws this month to talk about what Android news is left on the table after a big Apple event. However, Joe also does a demo on the Google Now Launcher and how accessible it is with TalkBack versus his updated Galaxy S5 with Touch Wiz. Plus we have a great interview with code Factory. All that, and a bit more, on this month’s That Android Show.
In The News:
TalkBack was updated after our recording of this episode. Learn what’s new in this release by going to the Google Play Market page
As a follow up from episode 31: “For those who missed it earlier: #30DaysWithAndroid has a new home. No more Blogger! 😉 And a nice listing.”

App Demo: Google Now Launcher
Joe takes us on a short trip through some basic home screen differences between the recently revamped and released Google Now Launcher versus the Samsung Galaxy Series Touch Wiz interface. The Google Now Launcher is available for many phones and tablets running Kit Katt and is free. The Touch Wiz environment has many more hints and tips for speech users, however, it is nice to be able to hear what some aspects of the stock launcher would say under some conditions.
Developer Interview: Code Factory Global
Code Factory made the news earlier this year with the release of the very popular ETI voices. Joe sits down with Melanie Endres to talk Braille, more about voices and what changes are coming for the company in 2014 and beyond.
