Reviews

Reviewer: Spinal News, Summer 2012, page 31, Spinal Injuries Ireland
Review: “An app that gives you a list of wheelchair-accessible locations and amenities in your area. It uses location data to pinpoint where you are, and, using ‘OpenStreet’ data, it tells you what local amenities are accessible nearby. Where appropriate, the listings have contact details from the businesses. You can view the search results in list form, or on a map, depending on what suits you. And, if you set up an account, you can contribute to the app’s database by adding new locations yourself.”
