Ok interesting.  What does anyone else think of this app?  I've read mixed
reviews.  Does it also give increased access to the rest of 4 square as
well?

I don't know anything about the Sendero app but I downloaded BlindSquare on
Saturday which I like. It tells you street names as you approach them and
flags up points of interest within a radius which you can define and it
pinpoints them by saying if they're at 1, 2 or 3 o'clock or wherever.

Only used it briefly but I really like it.

The subject line says it all really.  Last year, Sendero was getting really
excited about a forthcoming GPS app they hoped would retail for under £100.
Anyone know any more about this? I’ve heard nothing.



I ask because I notice that RNIB has really started promoting Navigon as it
has won the IPhone app of the month and been highlighted  in the latest
issue of Switch on to Technology.  So Navigon is accessible but it doesn’t
do some of the things that Trekker can do that would be useful for a blind
person such as tell you about the name of each road as you pass or get near
to it and tell you what land marks are near you.  even those that like
Navigon will agree that other apps are needed to make a really useful
navigation system for a blind person.  I don’t want to buy Navigon only to
find that I could have saved £40 or so by waiting for a specially designed
app such as that from Sendero to come along.
