New article for this week, updated no less than 10 times during the day, was AAC App Discounts for World Autism Day 2015. This single article turned the 2nd and 3rd of April into the busiest two days EVER for ATMac, which was a lovely surprise!
Also updated this week, our popular article about Lanyards and Straps for iPhones and iPod Touches. I have been testing out a Chat Bag for my iPhone 6+ in the past few weeks and it’s very handy. I’ve also been working on the second part of the article about straps for the iPad Mini and iPad (here’s part 1), so you should see than in the next week or two.
