We are back

Por fin, tras un parón veraniego que ha tenido por objeto un traslado de servidor de alojamiento en el que todo lo que podía salir mal, salió mal, estamos de vuelta. No habría sido posible sin el apoyo, asistencia técnica y ayuda de Iñaki, el mejor diseñador y gestor web que se puede desear.

Por supuesto nos queda mucho que actualizar, pulir y mejorar, por lo que seguiremos abusando de vuestra paciencia. Muchas gracias por seguir ahí.

MyGame Sequences, our new app

MYGAME SEQUENCES DESORDEN

MyGame Sequences is the third application of “MyGame” family. In “MyGame” apps we intend to create cognitive stimulation game generators, so you can create and play these activities but always adapting them to the end user. This application allows you to create sequences of actions, very much like the ones needed to teach children within the Austistic Spectrum. You can also play  and to sort them out, thus, learning their order.

This application makes possible to create sequences ranging from 2 to 7 images and to enrich them with text and audio. The app also offers the possibility to set hints in the game and to limit play time. Finally, it also allows some basic gamification by grouping games in complex sets if dessired. It is available in Spanish, English, German, French, Italian and Galician.

To remove a sequence you have to do it from an Android file explorer, removing the adequate folder inside the game folder “MyGameSequences”.

We’ve uploaded this new app MyGame Sequences to Google Play and our web:

Here you can have a look at several screenshots of the app.

PictoTalk, instant messaging using pictograms!

PictoTalk_logo

PictoTalk is an instant messaging application based on pictograms. It allows communication by using Picts (signs that schematically represent a symbol, real object or figure) as well as text. So far our communication boards needed the presence of the person you wanted to communicate with, so he/she could hear the message. Thanks to PictoTalk we take a step further! By sending the pictograms using Internet, this application allows a person to communicate, using an Android phone or tablet, with anyone in the world by means of pictograms. It is available in Spanish, English, German, French and Italian.

For communication, it is necessary to choose our own user name, and add the person we want to communicate with by using their username. From that moment them both can communicate using Picts or text. The application allows to listen to the Picts and texts, both sent as well as received.

PictoTalk is highly configurable. For the selection of the Picts used to communicate it uses PictoDroid Lite v3.0, so it is very easy to modify the board: adding, deleting, changing, renaming… Picts. It is also possible to configure it to use other Picts and even real images.

PictoTalk does not encrypt messages, so it is advisable not to send sensible data such as passwords and credit card numbers.

In PictoTalk there cannot be two users with the same name, if you try to pick a name that is already selected, it is not permitted. If you need to delete an account, please contact us via email.

You can try PictoTalk by adding the “accegalresponde” account. This account will not answer questions, just simply answer random pictograms and text as an example and it will disappear in a few days.

PictoTalk may not work in some corporate WiFi networks (companies, administrations, universities, etc.). For security reasons these networks do not allow access to certain Internet addresses, due to this PictoTalk will not work on these networks despite not being a harmful application. Try using the application with your mobile data connection or with another WiFi.

We’ve uploaded this new app PictoTalk to Google Play and our web:

Next you can see a video of the app.
