Accessible App List For Android

One day this week while listening to the wonderful Double Tap Podcast, I
heard feedback from someone disappointed because they weren't successful
in finding a good list of accessible Android apps, especially for use on
their new Pixel 8 phone.

Several years ago I used to post a list of accessible android apps that
I was using but I no longer do that. There is a reason for that,
accessible means different things to people. Just because something was
accessible for me, that doesn't mean it was accessible for any other
person. We are all different in the world of disabilities. Some people
see nothing, some people have some vision. Some can access apps when
color contrast is adjusted, or some may only need to use the magnifier.
Some people may be able to use one feature on days when their vision is
good, but maybe two days later things may be cloudy for them for a few days.

So there is no way I can produce a list of accessible apps that will
have any meaning than for myself.

However, I don't have any problems using the apps I currently have
installed on my phone. That includes the default apps that come with
Android 14 and the apps I have installed.

So if you are looking for a certain app to do something and you need
help finding suggestions, let me know. I can look around and tell you
what I think, but that again, is based on my accessibility needs.

These days, don't be afraid to try an android app for yourself and give
it a try. As long as you stay with installing apps from the Google Play
Store, you will be okay. You don't need to go looking for trouble by
installing "Discount Bob's Amazing Android App store." Don't install an
app because a web site says something is needed to play their media &
they provide the download link. That goes for other operating systems too.

Microsoft isn't going to give you anything for free because you shared a
special prize link to enough people.

Also while on this topic, you do not need anti virus software on your
Android device. Google scans the apps on your phone when you install
them and on an ongoing basis. If you look in the settings, you can learn
when your phone was last checked.

So if I can be of any assistance, send me an email. Tell me a little
about any disabilities you have and what you want to do.
