Very good app It is very accessible with VoiceOver congratulations                     My ariadne GPS review Michalski1989
Ariadne GPS has been my main GPS app since I got my iPhone in June Each of the 4 GPS apps that I use has a particular combination of benefits for me Here are some of the things I love about this 1 Today I discovered that a driver who is used to working with me can use the visuals with me zooming in out and changing the center of focus to plan our route We enjoyed discovering the different colors for highway and other features I forget the details now but it was a lot of fun When I am walking I feel the range of nearby addresses and the distance and direction to a tracked point or nearest favorite on my Braille Sense with my left hand not holding the white cane By putting my own keywords in the descriptions of my favorites I search my favorites for a keyword and a particular set of favorites appears I have query interval set to every 5 seconds and I rarely worry about data usage I m still getting used to exactly when to expect to hear street names and feel vibrations when I m dragging my finger around the screen to add to my mental map it does seem pretty good and I m betting I ll get the hang of it with more practice According to today s driver the rotating map feature didn t seem to do anything but I ll reread that section of the instructions and see if I understand better                     braille user loves this JDD_Apper
I am totally blind and use this app with Voiceover It has been a God send I set points to be announced and walking around with my iPhone and cane works great Thank you for continuing to update this app and ensure it works with Voiceover for the blind and visually impaired                     Love it Location location location CindyWandFaunaTheGuideDog
For my purposes this app is more effective and economical then other options out there The in app purchase in my opinion is well worth the asking price and unlocks some excellent new functionality                     An excellent app has been improved NCGeoff
I just bought this app and its not bad but there is on major thing missing that would make this app great I would like the ability to set up a route to a specific address and or Point of interest favorite That is what I was hoping this app would do but it does not Until it does i feel i wasted 6 I may delete it off my device until that is there         Ok but WR1U
Great update Finally fixed the screen size issue for iPhone 5 If only they can also add cross street name it would be even better                     Excellent goalball
This app is a must for blind peoples Thank you a lot                     No choice Tayeb meftah
This app is very accessible for visually impaired and blind users is a fantastic GPS tool thank you for developing                     Accessible for voiceover Bill boules
This app is the absolute best app for people that have visual impairments I m excited to be one of these people who have this app and I m excited to see what the future brings within the maps application in iOS six                     This app is the best for voiceover users Brandon armstrong
This is a really great app for helping to navigate through streets blocks cities et cetera Thank you so much For developing this app It has helped me get around Thank you thank you thank you                     D Dobler D Dobler
It s a touchable interactive talking map It s a talking tour guide when you re walking outdoors or riding in a vehicle It s an orientation tool that will remember places that you ve been and help you to find them again Its accessible map is an unique and innovative feature The ability to pull out your device anywhere and instantly be able to feel the arrangement of streets regions even cities is an amazing orientation aid It would be nice if this app could integrate with other GPS apps though For example this app need not directly include turn by turn directions but it would be great if you could select a place on the map and have this app open another GPS app to provide that info I ve seen other apps that can open Navigon so it s possible Still this app does a great job at what it is designed to do and is well worth the cost                     Nothing like it Bryan Smart
This is one of the best GPS apps I have come across I like the ability to explore where you are at on a nap virtually The monitor function is pretty neat too it seems the most accurate when I am walking                     Awesome app Noandy
The most accurate maps I have found Would be five stars with points of interest added and turn by turn directions             Almost perfect Write and see
This app will provide you with real time updates of your location if you activate the monitor feature and then press the where am I button However as another reviewer wrote below the app sometimes fails to mention the name of a street onto which you have turned In addition the app is inconsistent at announcing streets that you have crossed One truly revolutionary feature I would like to see added would be for the app to detect the direction of your movement and to announce the street you are approaching and the street that is behind you In other words an audio summary that is equivalent to the look around function In addition there does not appear to be any method of zooming in or zooming out on the map I would really like to zoom in on the map so that only a few streets are visible at a time Finally I think that adding audio tones to the map would make finding the lines that represent the streets a bit easier                 A very good travel aid but there is room for improvement Michael Nunez
I was able to find my way home with this awesome app after getting turned around                     awesome app MYShowe
This app will let you put your finger down on a map then Voice Over will read you The street name and Street Number s as you move your finger It will in that way let you explore what is around you or explore what is around in another city It will let you define favorite points of interest and alert you when you are near them You can get real time monitoring info as you walk with this app or ride in a car Therefore you can learn a route people take while driving you somewhere so you can tell others how to get to that same location The developer is great and reports in an interview on the Candle Shore Podcast that he is going to work on improving the app by working on it to announce the name of Cross streets when you come to an intersection So this is so worth it AT 3 99 US it is some of the best money I ve ever spent                     The best map app for the blind ever 3K99Dad
Thank you this app rocks keep up the good work                     Love this app ChadwickP
Using iPhone 3Gs version 4 3 3 Pros This is one of the most innovative GPS applications I have come across First discovered buried within the App Lists section of App Advice a category dedicated to visually impaired and blind applications Needless to say I was very excited to give it a try after reading the review One of the first things I noticed when interacting with VoiceOver in the application is the variety of ways to use it While it gives the impression of information overload at first playing around with the different modes presents several different ways of using this app Pressing the Where am I button gives a static readout of your present location Pressing the Look Around button flips over to a full screen map where nearby streets and their corresponding numbers are presented Admittedly this is a little confusing at first relying solely on VoiceOver However with all accessibility options within the application turned on Map navigation becomes easier to understand Through some pretty extensive personal testing using the Start Monitor function i e commuting on downtown busses highway travel suburban driving walking the most ideal use of this GPS application falls into more urban settings The experiences in downtown commuting on busses were pretty impressive Each intersection crossed was fairly reliable in being announced accurately There were some latency issues when turning into new intersections and some street names were skipped completely in being announced However periodically checking the street name yourself resolves this issue While walking as the GPS application is in monitor mode results in a similar experience as bus commuting There are some latency issues with turning on to new streets and the next street can be announced far in advance of actually approaching the intersection These conditions were experienced with the query interval set at the default 10 seconds Changing the interval time could completely alter the experience of walking and using the GPS app Cons Suburban driving and highway driving unfortunately had similar results Even with the query interval set at 5 seconds the actual travel of the vehicle bus was too fast for the GPS application to keep pace Perhaps naively I expected the options for this GPS application to be within the program itself Instead all of the preferences were located within the settings control panel of the iPhone Surprisingly and disappointing most accessibility oriented options as vibrate on street were turned off by default There are still some head scratching elements to be fully explored to be explained For instance what does Cardinal Point and Compass instead of Course mean How does this impact the performance of the application No description is provided There is no way or at least I have not yet found it to delete added favorites from the list Announcement of street block numbers seemed new and cool at first using VoiceOver but soon became repetitive Unless you re specifically searching for an address in real time this feature seems sort of useless if constantly turned on On the main navigation page the top third portion is of a satellite picture of your current location using Google Maps This is pretty neat but I would have never known what was there without my wife looking at it to point it out as VoiceOver indicates nothing is there Putting the application into the background disables the monitoring function if turned on Battery drain as with all GPS applications is the challenge with such a convenience In my experience of walking one complete block my battery went from a starting 98 percent to 86 percent Breakdown Some may find the rough edges of the interface and lack of supporting documentation intimidating For those willing to tinker and explore with VoiceOver will overcome these issues There are a lot of settings and variables to play with here so no shortage of varying degrees of accuracy or results with this GPS application While there is much more to be said the price of 2 99 cannot be beat for what is gained for someone visually impaired or blind The possibility of using this GPS application together with Navigon or Tomtom may open new doors in exceptional accessibility and independence                 Ariadne GPS VoiceOver Review One Blind User
