Amazing Navigation and Accessibility Devices #2

Clew appClew is an outstanding free app for blind and visually impaired people, enabling them to retrace their path and return to any location.  Users can choose to return to a location via voice directions, sound effects, or haptic feedback.

Here's how it works:  As the user walks to a location, their phone tracks the route by leaving virtual breadcrumbs.  Upon arrival, their phone enables the user to retrace their path using "keypoints" -- locations where the user turned or went up or down stairs.  As the user returns, their phone provides directions to each keypoint, in reverse order, until the user reaches the starting point.

Features include:
  • Record a path with a simple click
  • Pause any time
  • Use Clew to retrace your path
  • Visualize the path with flashing markers
  • Select from voice directions, sound, or haptic feedback
  • Lots of ways to customize the app to your needs
