It carries beyond the realms of imagination!
Autism is one of the serious disabilities that infect many children around the world at an early age. Autism children need special attention and the parents of such kids need support throughout the journey as their lifestyles and situations change. Let me introduce an app that is specifically designed to serve in this area.
In My Own World, an iPhone app comes with an inspiring tale for Autism children, to let them escape into their own world. After launching it, users can find two sections – Read myself and Read to me. The first option launches a book with images and related text that can be read by kids.
The other section of the In My Own World is a video that has all the pages of the ebook and a background voice to read them for the kids. The idea behind the app is letting the kids read or hear the text to visualize and explore their own world. [pullquote]The concept is good and the design deserves the praise it gets![/pullquote]
However, there is one small downside in this app. If the users launches the Read to me section once, they need to wait until the video ends or they need to close the app and re-launch it again. Tapping on the Done button at the top of the screen just pauses the video and it doesn’t take the users to the main screen. I hope that developers will look into it in the future.
In My Own World is compatible with iPhone, iPod touch and iPad and it requires iOS 4.2 or later. As it has a video, this app is a bit bulky (131MB). In My Own World can impress any child and I think this effort needs to be appreciated as this app comes at free of cost. It really deserves a try.
