Testimonials

“I would like to congratulate you on the amazing idea of ABILITY APP. I’m a 33 yr old man with a complete T7 Spinal Cord injury paralyzed from the chest down caused by a car accident in 2015. I’m​ very outgoing but not knowing the obstacles that I can find, stops me from going out on my own. I want to go out on my own but I’m afraid that the places I want to go to are not wheelchair accessible. I have to make phone calls or send emails ahead of time sometimes they don’t even reply. I’m really looking forward to having ABILITY APP soon. Thank You so much and may GOD BLESS YOU!”

-Marco

“I am Autistic and I am sensitive to loud noises, crowded places, certain smells, and bright lights. I am so happy to know that Ability App has information about these things that make getting around very hard for me! I look forward to being able to go out more because I will know what to expect and what places will work for me. Thank you for helping people who have different needs.”

-Greg

“I am a paraplegic. I used to constantly worry when I traveled because there were so many unknowns about whether or not a place is accessible. Ability App takes the worry out of traveling for me! I now know if the bed height in a hotel is low enough for me to get in to, if the entrance to a business is accessible, if there is accessible parking for my van! I was so happy to see whether or not a hotel also had a pool or spa lift! So great! I cannot thank you enough! This is life changing!

-Jenny B.

“I’m from Colombia in South America. I just saw a clip of you on the Ellen DeGeneres Show. I just want to say THANK YOU for trying to make this world more accessible to people with physical disabilities. If you see obstacles in US, you’d be shocked to see how far behind countries like mine are in these matters. One of my best friends has been in a wheelchair for 5 years and her life completely changed because of the lack of access she has to go ANYWHERE! So Thank God for people like you. When I see young people like you making an impact, I for sure get so optimistic and grateful for the new generations. The world will be in good hands if there are more smart and empathetic people like yourself. God bless your work. I send you light and good vibes from the south of the continent. I got emotional to tears to meet you through a YouTube video. You’re definitely an inspiration. Please let us know when this app is ready to use.”

-Claudia

“I have been blind for 14 years. When I found out about about Ability App, I was so excited. Just to know what restaurants have Braille menus is so amazing (so that my friends don’t have to read the entire menu out loud to me or sometimes they have to shout the menu out to me because the restaurant is so loud, which is really embarrassing. To know what spaces are quiet so that I can have a better conversation with my friends. To know where there are service animal relief areas, is just beyond words. Thank you!
