Description of App: 

Living seamlessly in the menu bar Mountain allows you to manage volumes with ease. 

With Mountain you can mount, unmount or eject drives with two easy clicks. Unmount a single drive or eject all external drives at once. Unmounted drives will be spinned down and can either be unpluged or reactivated in Mountain without the need to unplug the USB cable and re-plug it again.  Mountain identifies and notifies you about applications that block drives from being ejected and allows you to easily exit the applications.  Mountain can be set to notify you whenever a drive becomes available or an external device can be safely unplugged . A click on the notification will open the drive in Finder.  The Mountain menu bar icon will indicate if external volumes are connected or if it is safe to unplug all connections including network connections.

Accessibility Comments: 

Oh, my, god! This app is one? hundred! percent accessible! I have yet to find even one part of the app that did not read flawlessly with Voiceover. Just make sure after you install it from the app store, that you run it from your applications directory in you Finder. Don't worry, the first time you open it, it will ask you if you want it to run at startup, which, of corse, you definitely do! If you goof and say you don't, don't worry about ti, just go to your menu extras, and vo+space on it's icon just like you'd do normally, and then go down to preferences and vo+space. In here, go to the general tab, and on here you can tell it to run at startup or not, so don't think it's irreversable. If you mess up, it's not a big deal. I personally have written the developer by going to the menu extra icon, then the support sub menu. In here there is a get in contact option. Once you open that up, it'll automatically launch Mail, and put you in the body of an already composed message all set for you to type the body, then hit your command+shift+D to send it off. Absolutely beautiful! Probably the best $1.99 in the US app store I've invested in quite a while! I'd really really! highly recommend this app! Bigtime! I'd also suggest you all write some positive reviews in the comments of this app, as I wrote the devs and told them to have a look up here at our site and at this review. I think if they see just how wowed we are about it, they'll be very very encouraged to make more apps that are just as accessible. You can definitely tell looking at this app that acceswsibility was highly taken into account, and for that, they get an A Plus in my book.

Usability: 

The app is fully accessible with VoiceOver and is easy to navigate and use.
