At the end of each month, members of the AppleVis Editorial Team take a look at all the apps that have been posted to the site during that month-either for the first time, or where there has been a significant update-and decide which of these they think is the most noteworthy.
The AppleVis Editorial Team app picks of the month for September 2014 are as follows:
1. Month Calendar 2 - overview at a glance of your iCal, Google, Outlook, Exchange, Yahoo, etc. calendars
New iOS App Directory Entry (Version 10.0); September, 2014.
"Month Calendar is an amazing and simple way to manage your calendar. You get a brilliant overview at a glance when planning. Use decorations to add color and icons to your events. Month Calendar gives you powerful yet easy ways to browse, organize, edit, and share your calendars." - App Store
From the AppleVis Editors: What more can we say? Month Calendar is a fully accessible, easy-to-use calendar app; it is likely what many people have been looking for when it comes to the ideal Calendar application. It also works very well with Braille displays!
Updated to version 3.0.0; September, 2014.
"With Google Play Newsstand, discover more of the news you care about on your iPhone and iPad. Enjoy breaking news and in-depth articles featuring audio, video and more. With hundreds of premier publishers from sports, business, cooking, entertainment, fashion and more - it's all there, easy to follow, read, and share." - App Store
From the AppleVis Editors: We were quite impressed by the full VoiceOver support Google's Accessibility Team brought to Google Play Newsstand version 3.0.0. This app brings news to your fingers differently than anything we have seen before, and it is also a great way to follow your interests.
New Release (now updated to Version 3.0); September, 2014.
"Type faster on your iPhoneR, iPadR, or iPod touchR in any App using the TextExpander keyboard. The keyboard enables custom abbreviations to expand into long snippets of text, such as addresses, URLs, email signatures, and form letters. You can even insert today's date automatically with the default abbreviation 'ddate'!
Access all your TextExpander snippets while in Mail, Safari, anywhere!" - App Store
From the AppleVis Editors: TextExpander is one of the first (if not the first) accessible third-party iOS 8 keyboards we've seen to date. It allows one to enter abbreviations that will then be expanded into full words. While the initial setup screen is not fully accessible with VoiceOver, the developers have assured us that they are aware of the problem and are working on an update.
