My name is John Petrous and I created a mobile application called Tappy Guide that helps cities and it's transportation systems become smarter for people with disabilities. We are similar to Be My Eyes and Aira. We provide wayfinding solutions for all people with disabilities.
I come from a family where my brother, sister and 2 cousins were born blind. Whenever they were in need of support they always wanted a trusted source to help support. This is why I decided to create Tappy Guide. We are a free service for our users. The goal of Tappy Guide is for our users to request help from Friends and Family. So instead of calling a random stranger with Aira or Be My Eyes, we've developed a solution where you can request help from a trusted loved one when in need of extra support. Your sighted friends and family can register for an account at www.tappyguide.com. We will then set them up with a Guide account so they will be able to support you and other people with a disability when help is needed.
We've recently partnered up with Ford Motor Company and the City of Austin TX to launch a pilot of our app. You can learn more about the pilot here:
