On the Mis-Named Mobilegeddon
If you are a web pro then it is likely that you heard that Google's search results were going to change based on how mobile-friendly a site is ( you probably heard a couple months ago even ). This change took effect yesterday. As with almost all things in t...

Typefaces for Dyslexia
Both typefaces claim that heavier strokes on the bottom prevent dyslexic readers from flipping the letters when viewing them. The original caption: A heavier bottom is used to show which way is supposed to be down. I've been writing this post in fits, so it...

Alt Text Bot Image Descriptions FTW
This weekend I saw a tweet in Marcy Sutton's timeline that appeared to be an image description generated by a piece of software. Given my recent missives on the inherent inaccessibility of images without descriptions (even if Twitter accidentally gave us mo...

Selfish Accessibility at Buffalo Unconference
Yesterday I presented a stripped-down version of my Selfish Accessibility talk at Buffalo Unconference . With an unknown audience and a 20 minute timeline, I gutted most of the technical bits and focused on my thesis. I think it was well received. At the en...

Twitter App Sets Browsers Back 10 Versions
Screen shot of a web page as seen in the Twitter app, with a menu showing the option to open in the user's default web browser. The title of this post may be a bit of hyperbole for some, but it is completely true for me. Sometime over the course of the last...

All kinds of software vendors like to push major changes on its userbase without their consent.  Then users have to decide how to handle it

1.) workarounds, like userscript for Web pages

2.) Xposed modules for Android

3.) using alternate apps (mine would be Plume)

4.) revert to an older version

For number 4, I would recommend Titanium Backup Pro because it has the feature to remove an app from Play's database (they call it "detach from Market"...yeah, they're still calling it Market instead of Play...sigh).  It also has app lists, so if, as I see, apps show up on the "apps to update" list in Play again, I can just filter on my "keep out of Play" list and batch remove them from Play.

It's really a pity I have to do this too.  But software authors can be such pinheads sometimes.  I currently have 7 apps which I refuse to update because of stupidities in their newer versions, ranging from gratuitous, distracting animations (iHeart Radio) to dumb rearrangements of their UI (Roku remote, Plume).

Not only will TB keep your device backed up in case of disaster, but reverting developer/vendor stupidity becomes much, much easier.  The downside for some people is it DOES require rooting.
