I recently made some self-produced ringtones available for iPhone and Android SmartPhones via Tuunes.co/Artists/MaBo
The process was very easy using SnipSell.com as aggregator, and their tech support has been very quick and helpful to answer my questions. I am not advertising SnipSell for any reason other than the comfortable process of submitting my ringtones.
I have been told a few times that people were unable to preview my ringtones; this is why I would like to clarify this process here.
It was with great interest that I read the MIT Technology Review of assistive technology to help the blind get moving. I, too, have not yet found a running group to join or a tandem cycling partner; and the closest gym is in an area that is not easily accessible to me.
Thankfully, the Austrian fitness platform Runtastic.com has a number of apps in the App Store which are accessible to VoiceOver users and thus enable me to stay fit independently at home. Now that we are approaching the season when being active outside is not the most appealing idea for any of us, these apps come in handy for everybody.
Read on for a review and how I use these apps…
