My wife & friends shared the video about this app on FB. It sounded promising, using crowdsourcing as the data driver. After using it, it brings me to a location in Toronto, showing me sites visited & rated there. I tried typing in my zip code, yet it didn't respond. Location services wasn't made active. I zoomed out, and went to a different location in USA. I then hot the crosshairs symbol on the bottom right. It asked me to allow location services. I allowed it, but the crosshairs again, and it didn't bring me to my location. I tried typing in so names of locations, i.e. restaurants. And multiple names without cities came up for chain restaurants, which I know which are accessible. Eventually, is like to see even more differentiation of ratings, since I'm a capable manual wheelchair user, yet I'm sensitive to users of larger powered wheelchairs, as when as the hearing & sight impaired community.
A brand new app with a load of potential. I am a service dog user with invisible disabilities in the states. Just saw the video and had to download it. I cannot wait to see the ping feature pop up so that I can help the map south of the Canadian border grow and be able to help out friends that are new to the area or visiting find places of access - no matter the disability. Keep up the good work, guys!
This app has great potential. I'm in the UK but this app wants to auto zoom me goodness knows where. The location feature didn't work either. Can't add your own accessibility reviews. Would be really handy to set where you are and search only within that area as when searching for a place it doesn't tell you where it is within the search results.
I'm disappointed, the video hipe for this app said it's available worldwide, but it's quite apparent that's not the case, at least not yet. Why isn't it available in the USA? Why can't we pinpoint locations, and rate the accessibility of them? We should be able to help each other down here too.
Nothing in Australia as yet would be a great app if people get on board and start using it. We have so many issues in Australia finding good access point's hopefully thing's will keep working as l am sure it will be well worth it keep up the good work so far
Nothing for the UK. Was hoping that you could at least add your own accessibility reviews of places. This app has potential, just needs to have this function asap before too many people see the negative reviews and it's a complete failure.
