Greetings, Below is the app store information about this app, followed by my initial review. Note that the name is spelled E y e hyphen d.
Eye-D, free, by GingerMind Technologies Pvt. Ltd. App store description: Eye-D is a movement propelled by the visually impaired community with help of Team Eye-D. We vouch to empower the VI by providing easy access to cutting edge technology! Eye-D is here to assit the visually imapired in independent living by helping them evaluate the world around them with help of their smartphone. It will work as your companion when you travel, help you explore places, tell yiu about the objects in front of you and read text whenever you need. This is what we have built for you: • Where Am I: Be it the busiest suburbs of Mumbai or the loneliest roads of Siberia, whether you are a common man or zombie, Eye-D will make sure that you are never lost. Tap on “Where Am I” and let the magic happen. You get to know your location with a list of landmarks nearby. Found any of the landmark interesting? Then why wait tap the preferred landmark and Eye-D guides you to it with directions (currently by opening Apple/ Google maps for navigation). • Around Me: Stuck in an alien town? Calm down, fire the Eye-D app and select “Around Me”. Bingo!! You can now find ATM’s, Banks, Bus stops, Cinemas, Restaurants, Hospitals, Stores and even the Religious places nearby. Select the desired category and navigate to the preferred place. To ensure that you never miss out a place we have provided a search radius controller. So the next time you don’t find a relevant place nearby try adjusting the search radius to anything in the range of 500 to 5500 meters. What? Still in that alien town? Come-on find the nearest bus stop and head out. • See Object: I’m facing the gate… No the lemon tree…. No the bike, Easy pal!! Use the See Object mode in the Eye-D app to evaluate your surroundings. Click on this mode, take a picture and Eye-D app will tell you what’s in front. So the next time you are standing at the window use the See Object mode to check what’s happening on the other side. In case you missed the description the first time simply swipe right to hear again. • Read Text: We designed this feature so that next time your visit a restaurant or want to get a novel for you friend you won’t have to ask anyone for help. Open read text mode, click a picture and Eye-D app will read the text in front you. You can swipe right to hear the text again in case you missed it the first time. • Contact Us: Love the app?

Do not forget to share images with Eye-D Vision! Please use the contact us feature to share your feedback/ suggestions. We will look forward to hear from you :) I was told about this app from someone who seems to think it will replace BlindSquare. I don't think so. While it is free and does some similar things and has some features like Seeing AI, you cannot search for a specific address or business, you have to pick from their list of Points Of Interest and their list is somewhat limited. I checked under its store/supermarkets category, and while it found a lot of ones in the radius allowed, it missed two Safeway stores and a Fred Meyer. The one Safeway store is much closer than several of the ones it found. Its picture descriptions are OK, and I have not tried its text recognition as yet. Once you pick a point of interest, it will open Google Maps to get turn-by-turn directions. Here is the app store link: Eye-D by GingerMind Technologies Pvt.
