BYMYEYES is a free iPhone and iPad app providing crowd sourced help for blind people with videochats. It basically that lets you help a visually-impaired person ‘see’ through their phone’s video camera. If you’re a sighted person you register with the service and wait for the app to send you a notification that a visually-impaired person who has also signed up requires help. Once a match is found, the two of you are connected via an audio/video call, essentially enabling you to ‘lend’ your eyes to the visually-impaired person who points their phone’s rear-facing camera at whatever it is they want to see.
