Hey! My name is Nick, and I'm legally blind. If you're like me, you've noticed that most people love sending hilarious GIFs to eachother all the time, and you find yourself feeling like you want to do the same. But you can't, because none of the GIF apps out there work with VoiceOver, so while you can randomly choose a GIF for some given hashtag or meme, you have no clue what content you're sending.

I built this app for myself, but I think you'll love it too.

assistEyes GIF is the first GIF app built specifically for the blind and visually impaired. Browse thousands of GIFs by hashtag or search, choose one, and send or copy it via standard iOS share sheet. And of course, they all include descriptive tags that are exposed to VoiceOver. What's more, you can also access the same fully accessible GIF library directly inside the iOS Messages app via the included iMessage app.

Your sighted friends and family will be communicating via visual elements more and more and emoji, stickers, and GIFs are here to stay. I'll do my best to keep making software that helps people like you and I partake in the fun. Check out assistEyes GIF and drop a review or send me an e-mail to let me know what you think.

Accessible gifs.

This app empowers people who are visually impaired to use gif files in their daily communication. It is an excellent app for those people who want access to all forms of communication. I highly recommend this app.

helpful but not great

I paid for the upgraded version, but the app still freezes after I send one of the limited selection of images.
If it didn’t freeze, or had more diverse content, it’d earn a better rating.
