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 July 2014 are as follows:
1. Overcast: Podcast Player
New Release (now updated to Version 1.0.1); July, 2014.
"A powerful yet simple podcast player, with features such as Smart Speed, Voice Boost, and Smarter Playlists to help you listen to more podcasts in more places, try new shows, and completely control your experience." – App Store
AppleVis Editorial Team Comments: We were incredibly impressed by Overcast’s robust accessibility support in the first release. We applaud the developer of Overcast for a job well done, and we look forward to many great updates to come.

2. Seeing Eye GPS
Updated to version 1.5; July, 2014.
"The Seeing Eye GPS™ is a fully accessible turn-by-turn GPS iPhone app with all the normal navigation features plus features unique to blind users." – App Store
AppleVis Editorial Team Comments: Version 1.5 brings the addition of Google Maps as a map data provider. While GPS results are always based on current environmental factors, one of our team reported (and an App Store review confirmed) having much better location accuracy when using Google Map data.
