New and Noteworthy App Entries
1. Button by Neatebox (iOS, Free)
18 years working for Guide Dogs for the Blind watching my blind and visually
impaired
friends struggle to interact with pedestrian crossings prompted me to look
for a solution
which would make the lives of all disabled people easier in this area.
Many crossings poles are out of reach or too far from the crossing to be
useful so I set
up Neatebox and looked for a way in which we could press the button at the
crossing
using our mobile phones.
“Button” by Neatebox is the result of this hard work and gives you a
hands-free remote
crossing control from your phone. It removes the need for you to make
physical contact
with the crossing pole and leaves you free to focus on a safe and efficient
crossing.
Simply download the free app and input your details and you are ready to go.
At this time there are limited locations in which the system can be used but
we are keen
to install more. If you feel that a crossing near you could do with an
innovative solution
such as this please let us know using the ‘request a crossing’ feature
within the app’s
settings and we will contact the Local Authority on your behalf to ask for
our system to
be installed.
