Making a big difference in someone’s life can be as easy as pulling out your smart phone for a few minutes every day. Really! Have you heard about new app, Be My Eyes helping the blind or visually impaired do daily tasks?
The not-for-profit app makes life easier for those with vision problems by connecting them with sighted helpers through a smartphone app. Be My Eyes allows the blind to handle big and small tasks, while sighted volunteers get the joy of helping someone else in an easy and informal way at their convenience.
This video can show you how it works:
The free app is only available now through iTunes. An android version is under development. You can sign up as an Android volunteer to be notified when it’s available for that platform.
