We all know about the importance of lending a hand to someone in need, but what about lending an eye?
The Be My Eyes app is helping connect the sighted with the sight-impaired and providing unlimited help. This ingenious app allows you to lend your eyes to a person requiring assistance with any task that requires sight.
After registering with the app, you are placed on a queue. When you receive a notification and accept, you will see through a live video connection and be able to answer any questions the person may have. As a volunteer, you help people who are blind keep their independence and complete daily tasks with more ease.
Currently, Be My Eyes can be found in the App Store at no cost. The current version is only compatible with iPhone 4s and newer, but there are plans to create an Android version.
Watch the following video for a closer look at the Be My Eyes app:
