How Friendly Works

While there are many ways to find places to dine or attend a concert, there is no easy way to find out whether a business has the amenities you need to be comfortable. That’s why Friendly Like Me was created.  With each review, you help others find and support businesses that make fit and accessibility a priority.

Features

Precise

Friendly reviews ask people to measure the presence of important amenities with “yes or no.” This means you can find places specifically rated for the amenities you need, as well as those that are not suitable for you.

A screenshot of a ratings screen in the Friendly Like Me app.  This image shows the ability to rate the presence or absence of individual accommodations by "yes" "no" or "not sure".  The accommodations shown in this capture are "accessible bathroom", marked yes.  "staff is accommodating" marked no.  Booths have movable tables, marked, "not sure" and "quiet enough for conversation", left blank.

Personal

Build a profile to personalize your search based on what you care about and find places with the amenities you need to be comfortable.

A screenshot of a business listing in the Friendly Like Me app.  This listing is for Molly Moons Ice Cream in Seattle, which has a "friendliness" score of 87%, a "Like Me" score of 90% and community scores for mobility 83% and weight 86%.  Buttons for "claim this business," and "edit review," are shown at the bottom of the listing.

Know Before You Go

Ratings of a business’ accommodations are created by people with a viewpoint like yours who understand what it takes to measure accessibility, comfort, and fit.

Participation

When accessible places are easier to find, more people can take part. Friendly Like Me believes that when people with unique needs are empowered with accessibility information they will participate more - enabling each person to live their best, happiest, and healthiest life - today and every day.

Getting out big

Getting out and experiencing life; the harder it is, the less we do it.  But then when we do find ourselves seated comfortably experiencing great music or enjoying the vibe of our neighborhood local... It's so good!  I want it to be easier to find...
