“We all like to live, as independently as possible, and for disabled people, technology and apps are an invaluable aid to achieving this. It seems that everyone nowadays owns a smartphone and tablet, and with that comes a seemingly unlimited world of apps to choose from.”
My aim is to design an app called ‘BeMy Navigator’-an app for differently abled that will give information on facilities provided in the public spaces for differently abled people.

One tap of the red button send alerts to your contacts via text, email, Facebook and Twitter. All you need to do is enter the details of those you wish to alert ahead of using the app, and they will receive a Google Maps link with your location.You can even send a photo attachment and record a 10 second voice message.
