Too often, we are quick to criticize developers for not doing enough to make their apps accessible. Today, I’d like to extend my thanks to one who has consistently embraced accessibility.
Threema is a messaging application that offers end-to-end encryption. In English, this basically means that your chats via Threema can only be read by their intended recipient. As Threema puts it on their web site, they offer “seriously secure messaging.” What makes Threema stand out to me personally though is their dedication to accessibility. Not only do they constantly seem to improve the experience for VoiceOver users, but they are very transparent about it going so far as to call it out in their release notes. And why shouldn’t they? Making stuff accessible does require hard work and having done it, this is something they totally should be bragging up. So thank you, Threema, for being awesome.
