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? Have a suggestion for the team? Found a bug? 
Please use this mode to talk to us. We would love to hear from you. Connect 
with us on social media:

surroundings
 and read text. 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.

Just thought I'd share what I've found,
