Product Description

Product Description

BlindSquare is a solution that makes use of the latest features available in smartphones to aid the blind and visually impaired in their daily lives. It has been developed and tested in close cooperation with blind and visually impaired users. It has won both the national Apps4Finland competition and the European OpenCities App Challenge in 2012. BlindSquare is available for iPhone and iPad in the App Store. It supports additional accessories to enhance the user experience.You can use BlindSquare for example to find the most popular cafe within a 200 meter radius or to find the nearest post office or the library. Shake your device to hear your current address, as well as information about the location of the nearest street intersection and venues around you. Track your destination, so BlindSquare will periodically announce the distance and direction while you are traveling. If you use BlindSquare to mark your position, it can help you to find this spot again later. BlindSquare possesses filters you can set, so you only hear the information you currently need. Have BlindSquare announce streets and saved places only, so you do not get overwhelmed by more information than you need. If you mark your saved places and Foursquare venues as Favorites, BlindSquare will always notify you when you reach them. Since BlindSquare saves your favorites and your places to iCloud, they get synched between all of your iOS-devices, and you can use BlindSquare on all of them. If you enjoy playing Foursquare, authorize BlindSquare to access your account, so you can check in at your favorite venues just by shaking your device. Set BlindSquare to share your check-ins on Facebook, Twitter, or to keep them private.
