FEMA launches free Spanish-language app, offers disaster information
The Federal Emergency Management Agency has launched a free Spanish-language app that provides disaster-related information for families and communities. Key features of the app include preparation-related safety tips for events such as flooding, hurricanes, tornadoes and other disasters, and an emergency meeting location tool that allows users to plan primary, secondary and out of state meeting locations. Users can locate a disaster recovery center after a Major Disaster Declaration with Individual Assistance has been issued. The feature provides information about how to offer volunteer services, as well as donations. The app is available to download through iTunes.
PopChar X 6.6 now supports Unicode 7.0
Ergonis Software has released its new version of PopChar X, a tool for exploring font collections and inserting special characters. PopChar X v6.6 supports the new version of the Unicode Standard; Unicode v7.0 integrates 2,834 new characters, which can be identified by name within the latest PopChar X. New characters include new currency symbols for the Russian rubble, and around 250 emoji symbols that are generally derived from Wingdings and Webdings fonts.
PopChar X v 6.6 features an improved layout for Scripts and Symbols, better matching the definitions in the Unicode standard. The software is equipped for accommodating fonts that have yet to be developed, and faster display of the character table, internal streamlining and preparation for Yosemite are also a part of the new release. The upgrade is free for anyone who owns a valid license for PopChar X 6, with upgrade paths available for owners of older licenses.
