List Of App Recommendations For Blind And Partially SightedAndroidUsers

by Jeffrey Stark

August 23rd, 2015

Often I get asked what apps I use or which ones I would recommend.    After just switching from my Samsung Galaxy S4 to the OnePlus +1 Android Phone, I was forced to ask myself what apps do I want to install on the new phone and which ones I could do without.

I used a great application called App List Backup By Email.  This app allows you to create a list of apps to install on a device.  You can select some or all apps and you can send it as either a clickable list with links or as a data file that the program itself will read and use to simplify the process.  The advantage of using this app is that It has made it rather easy for me to share with you the apps that I chose.

As a partially sighted mostly blind person who uses mainly Talkback and the high contrast Dark Material CyanogenMod12 theme.  The below apps should also be mostly or fully usable by any sighted or partially sighted android user.  Hopefully you find this list interesting and find a few useful apps to add to your devices.

Also, if you are looking for more great apps, don’t forget to check out the directory of apps at the Inclusive Android Site and feel free to post lists of your own app recommendations or links to lists of your favourite apps below.
