    Hey everyone,

    I know there are a number of apps to map accessibility (like Yelp or Google Maps for accessibility). Maybe we can make a list here since they likely have strengths and weaknesses in different countries.

    In Japan, we have:

    What ones do you know? Do you use them?

    We’d love to know more about this! We pinpoint all our listings on a Google Map on our website but are always on the look for great services:

      Yes, accessing by web is essential, especially for the planning stage. At the moment WheeLog is only available as an app. Which is great for when you are out, but more difficult for planning.

      Does GetAboutAble have an app planned?

      Not in the immediate future but that’s definitely in our box of ideas!

    I didn’t know Google mapped accessibility? Is this accessible places specifically or outdoor spaces?

    My friend started an app called AccessNow. They map places specifically, so you can check before you go. People can review, to give tips or explain why it is accessible or not. Restaurants, venues, outdoor parks, etc. They have expanded their mapping for sure and teamed up with Google I believe.
