I've just updated the Yes Chef app to the latest version 1.3.8. Although the app still has some issues, especially understanding my East London English accent, I still believe that it is a good app for blind people who cook.
However, I read the release notes for this latest version and the developers have said that 1.3.8 is the last planned update. Although the app was free, I believe that it is not good practice to design an app, which is expensive and time consuming, and then after less than a year suggest that there are no further updates planned. What do others think about such practices?
As blind and partially sighted users of IOS apps, it appears that we suffer from these problems far too often. For example, the very useful Money Reader has not been updated for some time and I know that the app will no longer identify Scottish banknotes whilst the new UK five pound note is identified as either a 20 or 50 pound note. Not good when fifty pounds is equal to sixty US dollars!
