Description of App
The Airs-LA app was developed to provide blind, low-vision and print-impaired people with a free, on-demand source of streaming audio through their iPhone, iPod or iPad. Visually impaired people are in constant need of current information that they are unable to obtain through conventional sources such as news papers, magazines and books. AIRS-LA (the Audio Internet Reading Service of Los Angeles) provides the information and entertainment reading services that this underserved audience needs - at no cost to them.
Users can easily navigate through the Airs-LA app using Voice Over functionality. Search top 5 podcasts, search podcasts by category, create a personal 'favorites' list and listen to high quality, free, streaming audio files through our easy-to-use, large-format audio player interface.
We are a non-profit organization that depends on support from users like you to cover our costs and allow us to bring this valuable service to this under served community. Please consider making a donation through our the app! We hope you enjoy!
That's not me
These things don't generally bother me, but for some reason one line from the app's description really grates. It simply bears no resemblance to how I view myself or my capabilities."Visually impaired people are in constant need of current information that they are unable to obtain through conventional sources ..."
Here's the offending (or should that be 'offensive') line:
+ iPhone5 Support
This version now require you to have an account to use. Unfortunetly, if you do not have an account. Creating one through this version has a lot of issues. I was unable to successfully fill out the form. There quite a few unlabel buttons plus entering the Gender, Visual Status, and such are very cumbersome.
So if you use this app and want to use it and don't have an account. I may suggest holding off.
Would like to see if anyone else can confirm this for me?
