Mister Icon's Blog

Mister Icon RSS Feed for the Mister Icon Blog

Welcome to my weblog!

Here is where I plan to write about some interesting topics in relation to my icon label app, as well as other topics to do with iPhone/iPad and technology in general. I plan to primarily focus on topics like accessibility and useability, as that's basically what my app is all about—making your iOS/iPadOS devices just that bit more useable and making your apps easier to access.

This is just a section with additional information, that hopefully some of you out there might find useful and/or interesting.

Helping a less-technically-savvy friend or family member to purchase, set up and use an iPhone or iPad can be an important task.
