Ratings and Reviews
People with disabilities could make this app really useful!
I downloaded this app last night and added a couple of locations that I've used & find acceptable. Too many businesses get away with providing bare bones restrooms, while others have made outstanding efforts! You might try promotion on some sites that have a large user-base of people who use wheelchairs and have a need for safe, clean, functional facilities. Good luck and thanks for your efforts as well. Only 4 stars *today* because you need more human input; will be worth 5 stars when we can get more users to visit & rate your suggested locations, and start adding their own. Thanks so much! :)
Great idea! Participate people!
Long ago before social media really took off and map-software was a thing, I thought it would be great to map out the city I lived in San Francisco) for disabled parking, toilets, and accessible buildings. This idea is better, a sort of Waze for wheelchair users. I will use it where I now live but also where I visit. I just returned from Manila and chairists there would benefit hugely from this app. It might even reveal how absolutely horrible accessibility is in some places and how American businesses in those places (Starbucks, McDonalds, KFC, etc., etc.) are equally as bad as local businesses just because they can get away with it.
I downloaded this free application and was doubtfull at first but after adding 10 disabled parking spots around Cyprus and seeing them on a friends phone, i was amazed! Its a fantastic concept that can help disabled everywhere whether a toilet or a parking is needed!
If the creators can please add a way of editing position or deleting a wrong entry that would make it app of the year in my book!
