If you have been following the goings on in the smart phone marketplace, you've probably noticed the android platform and associated phones have been gaining ground on apple's iOS devices. I received news of a new DAISY reader for android and thought I'd share on the blog. If someone wishes to review the app, leave a comment on the blog and I'll contact you. Now on to the app press release.
St. Louis, MO -- Dec 5, 2011 -- New Designs Unlimited, LLC, a leading manufacturer of assistive technology, today released a new product for reading DAISY books on Android powered smart phones. This much anticipated product is the first of its kind for Android devices. Blind and dyslexic Android users can now take DAISY digital talking books anywhere without having to carry along an additional bulky, single-purpose player.
Darwin Reader for Android supports all flavors of DAISY digital talking books, including DAISY 2 and DAISY 3 text and audio formats. Books can be easily transferred from the computer to the phone. The app also directly integrates with Bookshare to make finding new books amazingly simple for qualified members; more integrations are on the product's road-map.
The news has garnered significant excitement among users in the "Eyes-Free" Android community. Many have already downloaded and posted positive reviews about the app. Mike, a prominent technology podcast personality wrote, "Yes, this is an awesome app, and this is only the first version, one of the best apps I have used for sure." Richard, another user in the community, joined the discussion with his review of the app, "The Darwin Reader app may just be the best thing since sliced gingerbread! If you don't have it yet, get to the market quick and buy it before the developer finds out he is selling it for way too little money! LOL! Just in case anyone hasn't figured it out yet, I love Darwin Reader!"
Darwin Reader is available now on the Android market. The app is on sale for $3.95. A 30 day trial version is available as well.
