Frustration With Android Apps

Wednesday, May 13, 2020
There’s not that much that frustrates me more than having to use stupid apps to do things that could just as easily be done through the website. I just spent I don’t know how long messing with a well known pharmacy’s app to get my prescription delivered. First of all their normal website refused to accept my phone number. I really don’t want to have to go to a pharmacy at this point to not put more vulnerable people at risk if I am a asymptomatic carrier of COVID19

Wx, Finally A Weather App For Android Seems To Be What I Want

Saturday, May 9, 2020
Ever since I got an android phone I’ve been on the lookout for a weather app that could do everything I want in one place. I used arcus for a while and that was pretty nice. It was simple but was missing some stuff I’d like for it to have and now seeing they’re shutting down darksky, the source of their data I’m glad I moved a way from that a while back.

No I Don't Want To Install Your App

Not much is more annoying when I’m googling something and see a pop up about installing an app. No thank you. I’d prefer to view the information my way with my text size and colors. I don’t want microscopic black text on a white back round with mostly white space. not to mention half of what’s actually available one the website to make room for the ads. There’s also the likeliness that the app is running all the time tracking me or possibly listening to me.

Poor Accessibility In Android Apps

Friday, Feb 20, 2015
I love my android devices for the fact that I can take them anywhere but I feel that accessibility is lacking. Too many websites push apps on you but the app will have tiny to microscopic text even on a tablet screen with no way to maybe increase the text size. It’s a real shame that no on seems to take this into account. They just care about pushing “pretty” apps that half the time don’t work properly to begin with.
