• Insert waypoints into your journey for a more efficient route
• List the junctions/intersections around you, alongside their distances from you
• Set favourite locations by category
• Integrated haptic interactions make it easier for visually impaired users to use the application
• Use the integrated Be My Eyes, a service which allows users to call a sighted volunteer for live support

Potentially good navigational tool for the blind.

This is a potentially good app for those of us who need walking directions. However, I would like to see this ability also expand to driving places as well. I would also like to see this app, use feet and miles instead of yards. This is a bit confusing to some who don't know the metric system. From what I can gather, I enjoy using this app a lot. I'm going to try a walking route to see if this is actually accurate.

I love this app

Even though being completely blind I love to stay mobile and independent. This app majorly helps with that. It is very useful, easy to use and has lots of cool functions. I use it all of the time to walk to my favorite stores and hangouts and to explore unknown routes and locations. And bonus unlike other navigation apps for the blind and visually impaired it's not outrageously priced. It's completely free. And no ads or in-app purchases. Tons of thanks to the developers.

Great app, but it’s a shame that it’s going to be going away on the next watch iOS update.

This is a great app, very helpful, and easy to use, but I received a notification that the app will no longer work when the next watchOS release comes out unless the app is updated. I hope that somebody is working on it, because it would be a shame to see such a great app disappear because somebody gave up on it! Please save our app!
