Apps round up


Hi there!  It’s Donna and thank you for allowing me to come into your inbox.

Today, I’d like to introduce you to my apps roundup.



1. Backgammon with Buddies (iOS, US$2.99)

Backgammon with Buddies lets you play backgammon with your friends whether they’re nearby or far away.


You can open the app and play on your phone or tablet, just as you would with a board.  It’s also possible to play with your friends through the Messages app, by sending the board back and forth after every turn. If you don’t know the rules, the app also contains a small guide to help you get started.


Backgammon with Buddies also supports a wide range of accessibility features, such as Dynamic Type, reduced transparency, VoiceOver and custom rotors. This means that you can play Backgammon with all your buddies, not just those who can see or touch the board.



*        Beautifully designed board with rich wood textures and felt lining

*        An integrated Messages app experience to play with far away friends

*        Highly accessible with VoiceOver and Dynamic Type

*        A lightweight app that respects your privacy

2. Trace See Plus (iOS, US$0.99)

Use App when people with visual impairment want to know what is in a picture. The application selects the closest thing from the 1000 categories of the learning model and answers in English the probability of the correct answer as to what the image is. Also, detect the person’s face and answer the number of people. Since all processing is completed inside the device you use, you can use it with confidence without forwarding information such as photos to the outside.


After recognizing the image, by touching the screen with your finger, examine the color and shape of what is being seen with voice and sound.


Current Version: 1.20 (May 30, 2019)
