Mobile App

Fellow Federationists:

Thank you to those of you who've submitted such exciting ideas for an NFB
mobile application! We're reading every response and truly value your input.

This is a friendly reminder that the deadline to submit ideas for the first
iteration of an NFB mobile app is  Saturday, March 15. I've included the
original message below for your reference. Submitting ideas is as easy as
sending an e-mail to mobileapp at nfb.org

Looking forward to building the Federation in new ways together with you,

A few people have asked if the mobile application that we're developing will
be available for Android devices. The answer right now is: we don't know.
When you submit your ideas for what you'd like the app to be able to do,
please include what platform you use (either iOS or Android).

The deadline to submit ideas for the first version is March 15.

For those of you who were not at Washington Seminar-and for those who may
have forgotten-here is what Dr. Maurer shared at the Great Gathering:

"We in the National Federation of the Blind know that blindness is not the
characteristic that defines us or our future. Every day, we raise the
expectations of blind people, because low expectations create obstacles
between blind people and their dreams. 

"Our number-one goal is to grow this Federation. We need to teach others
about the exciting work that we're doing to increase equality for the blind.
So, if we develop a mobile application, what should it do so that we can
teach more people about who we are and what we believe? What should do? What
should we be able to create with it? How can this be truly useful?

"For the next month we are inviting members to submit ideas about how you
would use a mobile app to enhance participation in our organization. One of
our members-Corbb O'Connor, now from Kentucky-is collecting and synthesizing
this information.

"Please email your ideas to: mobileapp at nfb.org by March 15. It is our hope
to have version 1.0 available later this year."

I'm eager to read your ideas!
