I was in need of a laptop refresh and while the new 2016 MacBook Pro was not what I was hoping for, I was not willing to switch to Windows 10. I have had a little more than a month with the new device and I thought it was time to share my thoughts. Read on to learn more!
I recently purchased an iPad for my daughter and for whatever reason, it came with VoiceOver on. Unfortunately, I could not find a way to disable it before going through the initial configuration of the device. As a result, the initial configuration took a long time. Once I made it through the configuration and disabled VoiceOver, I finished configuration and gave the iPad to my daughter for her birthday. Somehow, she kept turning on VoiceOver. After some research online, I came across a post that explained the issue and how to fix it.
As it turns out, VoiceOver appears to be mapped to the triple-click home button — if you select the home button three times rapidly, VoiceOver turns off. You can repeat the triple-click to turn VoiceOver off. This configuration can be changed under General > Accessibility > Accessibility Shortcut. You can read this post for more information.
I am an avid Macbook Pro and Android smartphone user. The combination influences the applications that I use. I figured I would share the applications I use most to possibly influence others, see what suggestions others have and to also see how my application landscape changes from year to year. So, what applications do you use?
