Youthnet's new Stepfinder App
Hey everybody :wave:
This week, YouthNet (the charity that runs TheSite) is launching one of its very first proper iPhone apps! :hyper:
It's called 'Stepfinder - Local help, easily found.'
The idea is to make it easy for young people to find local support, such as GP surgeries, GUM clinics, Citizens Advice Bureaus, walk-in centres and so on using augmented reality!
We're trying to help young people take control and navigate to the right support. It's also totally free and confidential.
So, what does it do?
- You can search or browse for your nearest service via postcode or GPS, from a list of over 2000 support organisations.
- You can read others' tips about services you might visit to help you prepare for your appointment. You can also submit your own tips to help others cope.
- By flipping to camera mode StepFinder will show you the services around you through augmented reality (AR) and exactly how to get to them.
Take a look at the StepFinder website for more features
You can download the app from the Apple store for free - tell us what you think!
We need your help!
We're pretty excited about it all, and want to reach as many people as possible. So, we could use your help sharing this app. For example, if you use Twitter, you could give us a quick shout by saying something like: Navigate to the right support with #Stepfinder from @YouthNetUK ? www.stepfinder.org
