Blindsquare (Assistive Tech!)Posted: June 18, 2012
I love finding new apps and I love sorting through trying to figure out how to effectively apply the apps for both personal and professional application. For the last year I’ve sorted through my iPad apps and found many of them good, but if partnered 2 or more together, could be incredible! Blindsquare has figured that out! They’ve integrated Foursquare with Voiceover to create a blind/vision impaired friendly app!
BlindSquare uses GPS and compass to fix a user’s location. It then pulls data on one’s surroundings
from FourSquare and employs proprietary algorithms to decide what information is most relevant.
Great possibilities for more travel, work and play independence! Thanks to Andrew Leibs for this app update!
