Cool iPhone Apps For The Disabled

iPhone apps can be extremely useful when it comes to health related concerns for individuals who may be disabled. For example, an app called Parking Mobility can help handicapped individuals find parking spots for their wheelchair vans. Others such as Allergy Runner can be helpful to anyone who wants to keep track of his or her allergies.

Parking Mobility

It can be challenging to find parking for your handicap vehicles and mobility vehicles. It’s even more aggravating when you find someone parked in a handicap spot who has no business being there. Parking mobility not only helps you find handicap spots; it even allows users to report non-disabled vehicles that are parked in a handicap spot. “Super Users” and contributors are even eligible for prizes and rewards. A version for Blackberry and Android users should be available soon.

Allergy Runner

Users can record their meals and allergic reactions in a journal. Allergies can be categorized by severity and triggers.

Food Additives

Some food additives are dangerous while others safe. The iPhone additives is a useful app for anyone who is health conscious and want to keep track of the additives they may be ingesting. It has a large database with over 450 additives and is searchable. You can even use it when you’re not connected online since the database doesn’t require net access in order to be accessed. Information shown about the additive may include the additive number, substance origin and food industry class.
