A while ago I wrote a blog on an app I’d been asked to test which they hope would provide face recognition etc – link below
Well I’ve spent the last week testing the latest version. Very apt really as today I’ll be at the Alzheimers Show at Olympia where I expect to see lots of technology and I’ll get to meet Mary Matthews, inventor of the app! very excited:)
The latest version was immediately more user friendly and easier to navigate – Mary had listened to comments and has obviously been working hard on version 2. It appears to be much slicker and is really heading in the right direction.
Face recognition functionality is one of the most exciting prospects. I’ve loaded photos of people and places so when I point the camera at the person for real it tells me who they are and all the details I’ve stored about them – genius! What I’d like it to do, which I can’t make work at the mo, is pointing the camera at photos – that would be brilliant ! It’s on my feedback list……..
The Alzheimer’s show – Friday 5th & Sat 6th – promises to be invaluable for anyone with dementia in their lives but also for anyone wanting to find out more.
If you are a carer, care professional or member of the public looking for more information about dementia, then a visit to the show will give you the latest and best information, products, experts, services and practical advice to help those affected by dementia.
