Best ‘feel good’ app available.

I’ve answered many calls from visually impaired people the world over, often asking what color this jumper is (as they point the camera at clothes on the bed), “I dropped a nut from this device - can you see it?” as they scan the ground with their phone camera (which I’m looking through on my screen), or “is this can peas or olives” :) Such questions you and I effortlessly self-answer 50 or more times a day a blind person may need help with, and that’s where this app comes in. I’ve even sat for almost an hour late into my night helping someone in the US (I’m in Australia) install the vision-impaired-friendly Ubuntu operating system on their new computer. Slow process with 50 prompts and screens to click and point to and press enter… the lady could never have done it without outside help. Instead she kept the phone camera pointed at her screen and I’d say “Do you want just the English dictionary and keyboard?” or “Do you want the large blinking cursor installed?” and helped her guide her pointer to the Enter key on the screen and so on. BeMyEyes made it possible for someone on the other side of the planet to help her sitting alone in her apartment. I love this app and highly recommend it to all.

Love the app

I have had a few instances where I’ve missed a call for help even when having my phone in my hand and answering instantly however I’ve ALSO answered a call myself and helped a lovely person ensuring they had their computer video set up appropriately for a business video call. The call went smoothly and was reasonably quick whilst obtaining a positive outcome.
I’m surprised people are becoming angry at the wonderful app creators for making such a useful and helpful app.
The amount of those willing to help is definitely outweighed by the amount needing help (as you can see on the home page of the app.) so of course you’re not going to be able to answer every single call you try for and even then… is that a reason to be mad?! 🤦🏽‍♀️
Definitely a fan of the app. 10/10!

Making the world more connected

I absolutely love Be My Eyes. I am a volunteer and have been lucky enough to assist a few people since I have joined. It is really so easy to help. You get a phone call and the person needing help will ask you the question and you just need to answer. I’ve been asked things like which cereal says gluten free, reading instructions and reading numbers on a blood glucose machine. As someone who doesn’t have much free time outside of the kids and work, it’s nice to know there is still a way I can help others.
I did used to receive more calls in the past then I do now but I guess that is because there are so many volunteers willing to help which is a great thing. :)
Congratulations on creating such a fantastic and really fundamental app that brings people together.
