We moved on to the primary topic of the episode-- VPN's. We discussed the benefits of VPN apps, and Marco demonstrated his favorite, the Astrill VPN found at this Google Play link.

Listener Questions

Next, we discussed and demonstrated the Voicedream Reader, a great app for both low vision and blind users alike, as a result of a request from Debbie from Melbourne Australia.

We answered another question from David Mehler, from last week's podcast. He asked about which signal check apps we recommend. We recommend both SignalCheck Pro, and NetMonster.

Wrap-up

We closed the session by singing happy birthday to Android. Android is now 15 years old as of July 11.
