Finding clean, accessible toilets and parking spaces can be a real challenge for wheelchair users. WheelMate is designed to change that.
WheelMate lets wheelchair users around the world locate wheelchair-accessible toilets and parking spaces. The WheelMate app currently has more than 30,000 locations across 45 countries – and more are being added every day. Almost 7000 people have downloaded the app.
All locations are added and verified by fellow wheelchair users to ensure the information stays up-to-date and useful. The more locations added, the more useful the app and the website become so download the app today and start adding locations in your area.
In December 2012 WheelMate won a shared first place for “Communication to the Consumer - Social Commitment” in the category “Mobile Media” and received a Finalist Certificate at the Global Awards in New York.

People with disabilities could make this app really useful!
I downloaded this app last night and added a couple of locations that I've used & find acceptable. Too many businesses get away with providing bare bones restrooms, while others have made outstanding efforts! You might try promotion on some sites that have a large user-base of people who use wheelchairs and have a need for safe, clean, functional facilities. Good luck and thanks for your efforts as well. Only 4 stars *today* because you need more human input; will be worth 5 stars when we can get more users to visit & rate your suggested locations, and start adding their own. Thanks so much! :)
I downloaded this free application and was doubtfull at first but after adding 10 disabled parking spots around Cyprus and seeing them on a friends phone, i was amazed! Its a fantastic concept that can help disabled everywhere whether a toilet or a parking is needed!
If the creators can please add a way of editing position or deleting a wrong entry that would make it app of the year in my book!
