First opened in 2011, the AppleVis iOS App Hall of Fame is one of the ways in which the AppleVis community seeks to recognize great and accessible iOS applications that are or have been life-changing for blind and low vision users. Past inductees into the AppleVis iOS App Hall of Fame include A Blind Legend, BARD Mobile, BlindSquare, Seeing AI, TapTapSee, Timecrest: The Door, Twitterrific: Tweet Your Way, Voice Dream Reader, and Weather Gods.
To be eligible for induction into the AppleVis iOS App Hall of Fame, an app must:
- Be fully accessible to blind and low vision users;
- Be from a developer with a demonstrated and long-term commitment to full accessibility of their app(s);
- Have been available in the App Store for a significant period of time; and
- Demonstrate excellence in design, functionality and operation.
Voting for the 2020 inductions into the AppleVis iOS App Hall of Fame was held from June 9, 2020 through June 14, 2020. Voting was open to all blind and low vision users who did not have any affiliation with the app they were voting for.
