[access-uk] Re: Four apps for iPod Touch/iPhone to recommend

Hi Carol.

The only things that don't work so well on the touch are GPS applications as the touch doesn't have a built in gps receiver or compass, nor do any applications that rely on phone functions to work. Everything else should work fine though, though remember that you can only use WiFi on the touch to get online.

All the best, Ibrahim.

Jackie,

I never realised you could do so much with the Ipod Touch. I hadn't thought about it going online, though I should, knowing that Apples stuff works with ITunes, and I certainly hadn't thought about it being able to run these other apps.

Very interesting, for sure!

So, does anyone know if all apps work across the board on their equipment? Just interested in how things work. ...

My Apple keyboard arrived yesterday, and pairing it with
my iPod Touch was extremely straightforward.  So I
decided to visit the App Store and, for 59p each, I
bought four applications that work with VoiceOver.  They
are the World Fact Book 2011, a dictionary and thesaurus,
Tune In Radio and, probably my favourite, Birds of
Britain.  The latter is an amazing little program if you
love bird sound and details.  Not only can you play the
song, but you can listen to VoiceOver provide a
description of their size, colour, family, time of year
etc.  There is also a favourites button to use where you
can add a library of your favourite birds to it.

Tune In Radio is great.  Similarly, there is a bookmark
facility where you can make a list of the stations you
wish to add.  Because I love tennis, and the Australian
Open is on at the moment, I have great difficulty getting
it on DAB as we have such a diabolical signal in these
parts.  So when I tuned in using the Sonata at 8.00 this
morning, a message said that restricted rights prevented
coverage.  I find this often happens at weekends when
football matches are in progress too.  So I tuned my iPod
to Sports Extra and, low and behold, got the tennis on
live.

All the above apps work with VoiceOver.  I don't use my
keyboard for everything, mainly when I get into tricky
areas that need a bit of typing. Mostly, I use my fingers
and have got used to doing so now.

Just thought I'd pass on the info.

Kind Regards,

Jackie Cairns
