…. New and Noteworthy App Entries
1) Callsheet: Find Cast & Crew (iOS/iPadOS, Free With In-App Purchases)
Have you ever wondered “who is that actor?”, or perhaps “when was this movie released?”, or “what was the title of that one episode of that show I love”? Maybe you’re a film aficionado, and wonder “how old was this person when this movie was released”?
Have you wanted to answer those questions without being prompted to log in every five seconds? Without advertisements, and without auto-playing videos? Without relying on a multinational conglomerate that is trying to sell you things?
You’ll love Callsheet.
Callsheet is the best way to quickly look up information about the cast and crew in TV and movies. It respects your time, doesn’t try to sell you stuff you don’t need, and is designed to answer your questions quickly and easily.
Callsheet also has some novel features that your previous favorite database app does not:
*Prevent spoilers when watching TV shows by optionally hiding character names, episode counts, episode titles, or episode thumbnails. Don’t let yourself get spoiled on a character’s secret identity, or that they’ll leave the show quickly, by hiding those hints.
*Quick access to trivia, Wikipedia, parental guidance, and where to watch (provided by JustWatch).
*Pin shows, movies, or people for quick access.
*Find things you’ve searched for before using recent searches and search history.
*Easily see the age of cast members when a film was released right inline with the cast list
*Easily see the age of a person for each entry in their filmography
*Easily see the height of actors (when possible)
*Dark mode support
*VoiceOver support
*Alternate app icons for subscribers
*Automatic, no-login integration with the wonderful Channels app
*Experimental, no-login integration with Plex
Current Version: 2024.9 (March 22, 2024)

2)  Good food talks (iOS/iPadOS, Free)
Good Food Talks empowers people with visual impairments and other reading difficulties to access and browse restaurant menus on their smartphones, in the way that most suits them and their vision.
Our app is designed to work with VoiceOver, Dynamic Text, and the other visual accessibility features that come standard on iPhones. Within the app itself, there are also two high contrast settings, as well as the option to read in OpenDyslexic font.
Simply type in a restaurant name, city, or postcode, or just click the “Near me” button. As you browse the menu, you’ll be able to build a shortlist of items you’re thinking of ordering. If you’re not yet in the restaurant, you can use the restaurant information icon to check opening hours, call the restaurant, or get directions on Apple or Google Maps.
Good Food Talks is already trusted across thousands of restaurant venues by some of the UK’s most forward-thinking pub and restaurant chains. Our service is and always will be free to access for all users. Restaurants pay a small subscription, which allows us to keep all of our menus fully up to date.
Current Version: 2.0.2 (February 28, 2024)
