This App Aims to Make Life a Little Easier for Plus-Size People

There's a lot to consider when it comes to choosing a restaurant, from the type of food to the decor to the location. But for plus-size people, even more research is often necessary. (Like, for example, if there are booths versus stand-alone chairs.)

Enter AllGo, an accessibility app aiming to make such research easier.

Currently in Kickstarter, AllGo received early backing from writer Roxane Gay and plus-size model Tess Holliday, and is essentially a review platform, where people of size rate the comfort and accessibility of public spaces, like theaters, airlines and gyms.

Per co-founder and CEO Rebecca Alexander, "I founded AllGo because, as a fat woman, I have spent countless hours scouring the internet to reduce my anxiety about going to new places."

AllGo is launching in Beta soon, but would-be users can sign up now to be updated closer to launch.
