When you’re adding a place, there are different things to look for depending on what category you are dealing with. With 21 different categories of places, ranging from beaches to parking locations to cinemas, there are many things to consider.

For example, the gradient of a beach will be essential to know, whereas at the cinema, the number of access seats and view from that seat are important. So we’ve made it easy by creating individual 60 to 90 second films that appear in the flow when you are adding a place in any particular category.

WheelEasy is a web app — a website which behaves like an app; in other words, you’ll find it on your web browser and not in your app store, and we’ve designed it so that it works just like an app. Just like an app, you can bookmark it on your phone’s homescreen so that it’s always conveniently at hand when you need it. It’s a hassle to have to go to the App store, find the app, and wait for it to download. So you don’t have. It’s available, free, on any web browser and an icon can be saved to the homescreen for immediate use, just like any app.

Bookmarking it is easy. This infographic shows how.

Because it’s essential that the quality of information on each place is accurate, we made it simple to add a place on your phone.

You go to the bright red circle in the top right-hand corner of the homepage (or if you’re on your desktop at home, “Add” in the header). If you’re already logged in, you are taken directly to the add place flow, where you begin the six step process by choosing your category.

Updating a place is simple too. On the page for the individual place are three options; add a photo, edit the information, and rate the accessibility.
