Loadstone GPS for the Blind for IOS

Loadstone logo

Awesome testimonial from one of our donors, Sean Randall! "I loved this bit of software on the old Nokia phones, well-worth investing if it can come to iOS!"

Designed by the blind, for the blind. 24/7 tech support. Multilingual interfaces. No data plan required.

Loadstone GPS is an accessible, affordable and portable navigation application used by over 7,000 people around the world who are blind or visually impaired. All they need is an accessible cell phone and a GPS receiver to enable them to plan routes and identify points of interest.

Loadstone GPS was originally designed for Nokia phones using the Symbian Series60 platform, which was discontinued in 2014.  For more information about the current version of Loadstone please visit the original Loadstone GPS web site. 

The Loadstone GPS team plans to offer the application through the App Store at a low cost to users who are blind or visually-impaired and would  like to thank Kristy Kassie for setting up and helping to run this fundraising campaign.
