AppleVis Extra 58: Interview with the Makers of Dice World and Huboodle
In this latest episode of the AppleVis Extra, Dave Nason and Thomas Domville are joined by Nick Barbato and Lee Hobbs of AppA11y, the people behind Dice World and Huboodle. Dice World and Huboodle are extremely popular game sets for iOS, and can be played by sighted and visually impaired users alike, thanks to the team's efforts in making the games fully accessible with VoiceOver.

I have tried using Huboodle on my Iphone 5s (yes, I know I'm behind the times), and some of the games nearly freeze up the phone. I put this here not as a complaint, but more of a warning to users of older iPhones who may try to play games in Huboodle. I assume the more problematic games are the ones using the Unity platform discussed in the podcast. Anyway, I will enjoy those games I can with Huboodle.Oh, and as a side note, I'm a newly addicted tournament junkie on Dice World. LOL!
I have a suggestion for dice world. More funnier computer opponents like Roger the Alien from American dad and many others. Another is for the games to be categorized in rooms. For example, if you have a few balut games on the main screen they could be placed in the balut room as for the other games. So all the pig games could be found in the pig room and so on. Maybe it could be a setting for people who would want it as an option. And a setting to turn off none bonus game requests.
