PhotoRoute in the News

PhotoRoute in the News
Our new PhotoRoute London app has been a bit of a talking point since its release last week and we’ve had the honour of being featured in some rather exciting media articles. Since the following publication have been nice enough to help us spread the words about PhotoRoute, we thought it would be great to let you know where you can find all the media on PhotoRoute and a bit about the publications…

  1.  The Guardian

The Guardian Technology Apps Blog has discovered Photoroute and likes what it sees. It has listed a number of recently published apps and in the list it has included Photoroute. Here’s what it has to stay about our recently published Photoroute London mobile app:

“This is a really good idea: an app from Enabled City for “accessible, editable route maps” in London, aimed at people with physical and learning disabilities, as well as people speaking English as a second language. That means step-free routes for people using wheelchairs, and photos taken along each route to aid navigation.”

We are very pleased to have a national newspaper and media company of the standing of The Guardian confirm that they think it’s “a really good idea” too and with a circulation of 60,847,400, we couldn’t have said it any better ourselves! Click here to see the blog.

  1. Hackney Today

Hackney Council’s ‘Hackney Today’ has published an article about PhotoRoute’s training initiative for people with learning disabilities. It is important to us that even with all the attention surrounding our apps, we don’t forget our roots and what we’re really about. Hackney Today’s article highlights how our training initiative for people with learning disabilities can really benefit them and the community. Here’s what . Cllr Jonathan McShane, Cabinet Member for Health, Social Care and Culture had to say:

“I’m delighted we’ve been able to use this exciting project to get people into work. We hope these maps will encourage more people, including visitors from further afield to explore the many attractions Hackney has to offer.”
