10 Ways the WheelMate App Makes Your Life Easier

Modern technology has made life for everyone a lot easier with the use of apps. Some of the more strange apps can help you do anything from connect with others in your town in need of a hug to getting a fake phone call from a friend when out on a date gone bad. However, there are more useful apps that are being made every day for those using power wheelchairs. One of which is WheelMate, the app that helps you find clean, accessible toilets and parking spaces when traveling.

Ten Awesome Perks of the WheelMate App

Not convinced that a smartphone app can make your life in a wheelchair or scooter just a little bit easier? Here are ten reasons why you need to download the WheelMate app today:

  1. Travel more. Life is meant to be lived – even when doing it from a wheelchair. The WheelMate app gives you the freedom to go just about anywhere you choose.
  2. Plan ahead. Whether you want to try out a new restaurant around the corner from your home or are taking a weekend drive to visit family, this app will help you to plan your road trip as early as possible.
  3. Peace of mind. It’s one thing to hear that a store has an accessible bathroom. It’s another thing to see that a location is verified by several other wheelchair users who can relate to you.
  4. Improved quality of life. This is an app that is not only convenient, but it can make your day a lot brighter.
  5. Experience independence. Everyone wants to be able to move about as they please without having to feel like they have to depend on others for help. This app helps you to do more things for yourself.
  6. Rate and comment on places listed in the app. Smartphone app technology is all about being connected to others in your community. Had a positive or negative experience? Share your thoughts right in the app!
  7. Share your own gems you find in the app. It’s great to share undiscovered gems with others in the app.
  8. Know the hours of operation. Nothing is worse than traveling to find an appropriate bathroom or parking facility only to find that the place is closed. The WheelMate app lists hours of operation when possible.
  9. Pay locations. Some locations require that you pay for bathroom or parking space use. This app will allow you to know this information beforehand so there are no surprises.
  10. Print a list of places for your convenience. If you enjoy having a printed itinerary to add to your trip plans, then you will find the print feature to be an added bonus.

With so many apps out there that are created more for entertainment value, how many can you say are apps you can use on a regular basis to make your life easier? Don’t forget to download the free WheelMate app for your iOS and Android devices.
