anywhere. There's no need for a computer--just get your device and start
shopping. This article reviews the Amazon mobile app, the Apple Store app,
and RetailMeNot. The first two apps have items for sale while RetailMeNot
provides discount codes and coupons for a wide variety of retailers.

Recently, Apple released iOS 9, a new operating system for iPhone, iPad, and
iPod touch. This new system provides VoiceOver accessibility improvements
along with other general improvements. There isn't a downside to upgrading.
*	CrowdViz: Remote Video Assistance on your iPhone, by Bill Holton
There is a new player in the video assistance arena called CrowdViz, and
like Be My Eyes it is currently only available in the iOS App Store, though
an Android version is also in the works. Unlike Be My Eyes, however, after
eight complimentary video assistance sessions, new sessions must be paid for
via in-app purchase.
*	College Success: More than Textbooks from Learning Ally, by Deborah
Launched in April 2015 and still growing, Learning Ally's College Success
program offers an online curriculum to guide students through acquiring the
necessary tools to adjusting to life as a college student - and doing so
with confidence and success.
*	sitecues from Ai Squared: Magnification and Speech for Websites, by
Shelly Brisbin
sitecues, a tool developed by ZoomText maker Ai Squared, seeks to make the
web easier to read for users who could benefit from text magnification or
speech, especially those who don't use other assistive technology solutions.
*	64 Oz. Games Promotes Braille Literacy and Fun At the Same Time, by
Jamie Pauls
As you prepare to spend time with those you care about this holiday season,
why not visit 64 Oz. Games and purchase some accessibility kits for games
that you and yours can play together. It is evident that Richard and Emily
Gibbs have a lot of energy and enthusiasm for what they do, and they have
only just gotten started making accessibility kits for games that the blind
and sighted can play together. Let's give them our support!
