Ratings and Reviews
No serious intent to reach out to the non disabled community.
Claims to the contrary, the developers of this application appear to have made no attempt to reach out to those who are not disabled. I’d say this appears to run counter to the stated objectives of the program developers. Also the developers are socially inept and not as receptive to suggestions as they claim. For example, I have suggested that there should be a delete button for in box messages or at the very least that in box messages should delete after X value. Play with the app if you like but be aware that any suggessstions you are likely to make will fall on deaf ears. Finally, if you want non disabled users to be aware of this application then it falls to you to make them aware of it as the app developers have shown no such interest.
Love this app!
This app has honestly change my life over the last year. I love having an even larger blind community than I already do with people from all over the world! It means a lot to be able to hear everyone’s voice. I have told a lot of my friends about it and have gotten a couple on the app. The community on Vorail has seriously helped me develop confidence as a singer as well. It is a wonderful app to socialize on! Keep it up! :-)
Could deleting account be made possible?
I do use this app. But, I’m curious as to why it’s not possible to delete the current account. I feel that if someone is going to charge a certain amount of money for any kind of app that has been built, there should be the option to delete the account just like many other apps that have been created. This is not a criticism in anyway but it is something that should be taken into consideration.
