If you are a blind person, you understand the love/hate relationship with Facebook. Facebook likes to change their interface about monthly, and it gets frustrating. Active Information systems has developed an app called voice book VO that helps with this. It is a basic Facebook app for ios. So far you can only really read and interact with your news feed and post statuses. But having said that, the ease of use of accessing the Facebook newsfeed is well worth it. The developers say they are working on adding extra features as well.
A word on how to use the app. When the app opens, you will see the first item of your newsfeed, to see other items flick up and down as you would if you were using the rotor or a picker. To access options, double tap on the item.
This is a very basic Facebook app, but being able to browse the newsfeed quickly and easily makes up for that a bit. Here’s hoping the developers will add more to the app and make it even better.
The app is available in the app store, and is free. So go check it out. Update, many people are getting confused because there are multiple apps called voicebook, make sure you get the app called voicebook vo.
