For every questionable app out there, there is an app that really helps make a difference. Technology, when put to good use, can really help make people’s lives better. Here are just 5 of our favourite apps that are designed to help make life that little bit easier.

1. Be My Eyes: There’s nothing better than people helping other people. This app connects people who are blind or visually impaired with over 90 000 volunteers who are ready and waiting to provide assistance. Via direct video connection, a blind person can ask for help in a range of scenarios – from finding their way around to reading the ingredients list on a jar of sauce. They simply send their request and the volunteer gets a notification that their assistance is required.
