Guard My Angel mobile app adapted to visually impaired people
The Successful Android App has been adapted to visually impaired and blind people
By: Cayo-Tech Communication Ltd.
Guard My Angel is a free mobile application which enhances people’s security and safety. In case of any personal emergency, the app automatically sends alerts to pre-selected contacts, and directs them to the user’s exact location utilizing “live” maps. Help is on the way!
How does it work? Whenever and wherever there is a need for enhanced security, the user can start an event by setting a timer for the event’s duration. After pressing the “Watch over me!” button, a countdown starts. The user can press the “I’m OK” button at any time stopping the countdown. In case of emergency, and once the countdown reaches zero, the app automatically sends various alerts (e.g., SMS, emails, Facebook notifications, etc.) to the contacts, notifying them of the user’s need for help including the user’s exact location on a continuously updating “live” map.
Furthermore, the user can also press a special SOS button at any time to activate an immediate alarm.
“We received very strong and helpful feedback from blind and vision-impaired people who feel that Guard My Angel can be a great tool for them”, said Amir Cohen, Cayo-Tech’s CEO. “We are proud to provide enhanced accessibility support for the relevant users and enhance the security and safety of numerous people around the world”.
Guard My Angel can also automatically detect unforeseen emergencies (e.g., car accidents) and respond with alarms and requests for assistance.
The application is available for Android on Google play - http://play.google.com/
