Hi, I work on the Autour app developed at McGill University, and I would like someone to test it and write an entry for it. It's an app for discovering your surroundings, much like Blindsquare, but with different features, as it's been developed independently, much of it before Blindsquare was first released, although Autour was released later. Among other things, it has spatialised audio for indicating direction, and multiple modes of reading, called Beam mode, Radar mode and Shockwave mode, each of which allowing to alternate between automatic reading and history. Also, on the main screen, VoiceOver gets replaced by a set of very simple gestures that are quicker to use and that don't interfere with what the app itself is saying. The app gets the names of places from Google Maps or Foursquare. It gets names of intersections from OpenStreetMap and it gets lists of bus stops from various bus agencies. There's a very concise instruction manual inside of the app.
The AppStore entry is https://itunes.apple.com/ca/app/autour/id887476373?mt=8
This app used to be for Canada only. This restriction does not exist anymore, though it doesn't have bus stops outside Canada yet, but that's about to change as well.
If you find any bugs or if you have suggestions, you may report them to firstname.lastname@example.org. You may also use this forum, of course, but this email address goes straight to the team.
Thanks for your attention, I hope that you will like the app !
