Hey! My name is Nick, and I'm legally blind. I have a wallet full of printed items, from credit cards to health insurance cards. And guess what? I can't read any of them! So when I need to do anything other than hand somebody one of these cards, I'm stuck. If you're anything like me, you've tried collecting this info in various electronic notes on your computer or phone, but when you need it in a pinch, it is nowhere to be found. Worse still, leaving your sensitive info in plain text is enough to make anyone feel uneasy.
I built this app for myself, but I think you'll love it too.
assistEyes Wallet is a single location for you to securely store and access all of the printed info you carry in your wallet, digitally, and fully accessible. Copy and paste, or manually enter all of your card content once, and then access it forever from one simple and secure location. Built from square one with blind and visually impaired users in mind, it has full support for VoiceOver as well as iOS dynamic text settings. What's more, it includes both a light and dark color theme, plus a special mode that turns individual item text extra large when you rotate your device sideways. Access to your data can be protected by an in-app passcode and TouchID fingerprint scan so even if somebody gets a hold of your unlocked device, they can't access your secure content. Finally, all data is stored and encrypted in iCloud Keychain and synced to all of your devices automatically, enter data once and access it everywhere.
Digital payments and identification are the future, but sometimes you just need to order a pizza over the phone with your credit card, call your health insurance provider with a question, or get a hold of the number on your state ID card. Hopefully all of those things will get a whole lot more accessible in the future, but until then, I hope this app can make your life just a bit easier right now.
Thanks for buying assistEyes Wallet! This is a quick update that includes the ability to "share" a note via the system share sheet. If you're enjoying this app, please rate it on the app store, and thanks again for your support!
Ratings and Reviews
This app gives the blind what they need. A quick way to get to private and personal information quickly and securely. Two thumbs up to the developer. Great job.
I work with individuals who are blind/visually impaired and I know people who'd appreciate this app. However, when I practiced entering and saving an item, it didn't show up in my list. Any suggestions?
Excellent product. Works perfectly.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
