HandSigns- A Handy App for Your South African World Cup TravelFiled Under Nokia 5800 Applications
Heading to south Africa to catch the live action of the FIFA Worldcup 2010? With just under a week to go for the extravaganza of the “beautiful game”, we are sure you are done with all your planning and shopping but then there is always this last minute shopping which you just can’t do away with, isn’t it? We are about to cover one such app- HandSigns, which we are sure you are gonna love.
HandSigns as the name might suggest is an app that will help you interact in sign language with differently abled acquaintances. With over 1.5 million of the South African population suffering from several hearing disorders, this app may just be the little thing you overlooked but we are here to help our readers as usual. Check out how helpful this app can be, after the break.
Well as much as the name is self-explanatory, the app is that much easy-to-use. Just tap on the alphabet you wish to denote and the hand symbol appears. This is one of those no-fuss apps which do what they are supposed to do, in an efficient and under-stated manner. The application has been developed by AppCRAFT, the same guys who did the snake guide application earlier.
What we like?
- Ease of use
- Intuitive design
What we don’t like?
- No support for punctuation!
HandSigns may not be that extensive handbook that you will have to slog over to be able to communicate with the hearing impaired but then it packs just about the things you might need to hold a conversation with a hearing dis-abled person. Further, apart from South-African version, there are American and Canadian versions of the Hand Signs available at Ovi store and more versions coming up soon.
