The Aira Connection – February 2023

This month we remind our readers to check out our “Afternoon at the Museum” series in honor of Black History Month. You can find the playlist on our YouTube channel, February is Low Vision month as well as Heart Health month. We’ve put a lot of heart and vision into our work this month too, with the launch of our new mobile app and more new Access Network partners.   

New Products, Features, and Updates

Aira Explorer – New Mobile App available in Google Play Store 

A year ago in March, we introduced Aira Everywhere and declared our commitment to choice.  Our intention was to support you on whatever device was right for your task. With the introduction of an entirely new mobile app, we’re strengthening that commitment, and reminding one another of our north star, #On My Terms. 

Aira Explorer is our completely redesigned mobile app that uses the Flutter code base to provide feature parity on whatever device you use, Android, iPhone, PC or Mac. You can find the new mobile app, called Aira Explorer, in the Google Play Store. We now refer to the original Aira app as Aira Legacy. You can continue to use the legacy app but it will no longer be available for download after March 1, 2023.
