But are any of them useful.. and how many of these apps are FREE..?
Well, some of them are designed to help people by improving things like:
- Visual accessibility: Silver Surf is a web browser with "large navigation buttons, dynamic text zoom, high contrast viewing".
- Your brain fitness: Lumosity is an app for keeping your brain fit and healthy.
- Save you typing: Dragon Dictate takes your spoken words and turns them into written text. Might not be much help if English isn't your native language however.
- Visual access: Eye Reader lets you use your iPad as a magnifying glass for reading magazines & newspapers. Seems a bit over the top to me.. just get an actual magnifying glass! Oh, plus it's not free, although the review i read said it was free.
- Reading: one collection recommended iBooks, perhaps because the app lets you zoom in close on text, and increase font size. This app comes on your iPad when it's new (?)
- There are so many of these lists around. Assisted living has a fairly typical list to look at.
