An App for the Altruist

How much time do you spend on your phone doing something for other people? Not much, I suppose. I don’t.

Apps for News, Gaming, Emails, Dating, Shopping, Travel, these don’t benefit mankind directly.

But, actually, there are some altruistic Apps out there. A friend of mind came across a wonderful one the other day called Be My Eyes. It’s an app that connects blind people with volunteer helpers from around the world via live video chat.

Try it. Volunteers currently outnumber blind users, but you might still get the call.
