Reading and Writing Braille, GoodMaps, Podfriend And Widgets

On this mid-week bonus episode, Nimer and Marco discuss reading and writing with braille on Android and iOS, we respond to Goodmaps feedback, Marco demonstrates Podfriend and Nimer discusses widgets.
Welcome to this midweek episode of the Blind Tech Guys. We thank you for tuning in and hope you get your tech fill out of this week’s bonus episode.
Main Discussion on Today’s Episode
Nimer and Marco discuss the state of Braille on Android and iOS, and we look at the good points on both platforms, as well as things we would like to see improved moving forward.

The team received email correspondence from GoodMaps with regards to Nimer’s demo late last year and we went through the GoodMaps emails and we look forward to having one of their representatives on an upcoming episode.
Marco reviewed and demonstrated a recommendation which he received from a fabulous new podcast called Podcasting 2.0. The app is PodFriend, an app which a number of listeners have been asking about on various email lists, which in its current early form allows you to listen to podcasts on Windows, MAC and Chromecast and runs us through how to install it on Windows 10 and shows us that it is very accessible but there is still a lot of room for improvement. We hope to get the developer of this app on to a future episode to talk more about its development and to chat about when it will be available on Android and iOS.
Did You Know?
Widgets are powerful. We discuss why widgets should be considered as a tool in your everyday phone usage on iOS or Android and debate how much more productive you can potentially be when you set them up correctly.
Listener Emails
We received some excellent listener emails this week, including a love letter to Marco, and the team appreciates you for taking the time to write to us.
