Volunteer innovation in charity apps

On The Guardian’s Voluntary Sector Network ‘Charity apps are supporting people and helping to find new volunteers’ – the summary says “From helping blind people via video link to alerting first aiders, innovation is making it easier than ever to volunteer.”

It leads with the example of the Be My Eyes app (for Apple devices) which connects blind users with sighted volunteers who communicate via video link to provide the help needed. Read at http://www.theguardian.com/voluntary-sector-network/2015/mar/11/apps-encouraging-volunteers-charity.

Reminder: the CharityBlog links page now has a section on interesting charity apps. Please do suggest additions.
