PictoDroid Lite_icon

We are happy to present the new version 3.1 of PictoDroid Lite!

This new version introduces three new features:

1) Natural Language Generation in Spanish: thanks to this new feature (activated in Menu, Settings, last option of Audio and Language), sentences in accumulative mode will be generated using natural language, taking into account gender, number, person and verb tense. The application must be configured in accumulative mode and the language of the app and synthesizer in Spanish.

2) Side menu on the left: in many devices it was difficult to access the options menu. Now it is available by swiping from the left side of the screen.

3) Swedish language: thanks to the translations of Björn Carnstam, we have this new language in the application.

We’ve uploaded this new PictoDroid Lite version to Google Play and our web:

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

How to access the settings menu

The “Settings” icon (three dots in a line) is always in foreground, that is, it is always visible no matter the interface. Nevertheless some devices (phones and tablets alike), mainly but not solely Samsung, for no known reason, don’t show this button or give access to “Settings” via other physical or virtual button on the device.
The first thing to try is to push the Multi-tasking button (the one generally on the left) a few seconds, and see if “Settings” options appear. If the app disappears either the buttons needs extra pressing time or it is not working. In case of the latter proceed to try the same with the rest of the buttons available, just in case.
Anyway there is an option most interfacer have called “Assistant Menu”. To access that option:

  • Go to Settings > Accessibility.
  • Tap on Dexterity and Interaction.
  • Tap on Assistant menu.
  • Toggle the Assistant menu switch to On and configure your settings.

That icon allows to see the basic Android options. One of them is “Settings”, so you can try to access, with the app opened, to access it. If it works (it normally does), you can proceed to customize the app to your taste or needs and then disable (if you prefer it) the “Assistant menu” mode.

SetTime Logo

SetTime offers a set of highly configurable time counters for people with special needs such as Autism Spectrum Disorder.

This application is mainly intended for kids and adults with special needs such as Autism Spectrum Disorder, but can be used by anyone who wants to have a nice set of counters.

This application allows to create five different types of time counters for kids and adults with special needs such as Autism Spectrum Disorder in order to make them understand the concept of time, i.e. know how much time an activity takes or how much time is left for an activity.

The counters types are: analog, progress, hourglass, bars and tasks. All counters are highly configurable, as well as the aspect appearence of the whole app.

It includes an always-on-screen mode, so the application is always visible. To exit this mode, the user must press simultaneously the volume down button and the left up corner of the screen.

We are back

At last, after a summer break in which we have completed a harsh and complicated hosting moving, we are back. It wouldn’t have been possible without the precious help and support of Iñaki, the best web designer and administrator anyone could dream of.

Of course, there is still a lot of work to be done so we are very thankful for your patience. Thank you ever so much for being there.

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.
