Free or discounted apps – World Autism Awareness Day (2014)

Free or discounted apps   World Autism Awareness Day (2014)

Last April 2nd we celebrated the World Autism Awareness Day. Some app developers offered special discounts and in some cases even their apps for free. And some of them have extended the period for their discounts for some more days or even for the entire month.

This post presents a list of these apps for iPad/iPhone/iPod touch divided by categories. Those categories are only indicative, and some apps could be included in more than one category. There are apps specifically designed for people with autism and other which are aimed to help people with special needs in general, and other that are totally generic.

The list is divided into categories. For each one, there is an app table with the following columns:

  • App logo.  
  • iPad version data: app name, additional editions, and prices in dollars and euros.
  • iPhone / iPod touch version data. In case this app also supports the iPad, this cell and the previous one will be combined. (Keep in mind that iPhone apps can be used in an iPad using the “2x” display mode).
  • Doucle link to the iTunes webpage and to the App Store.
  • List of languages supported by the app.
  • Developer’s website.
  • A link to the review of the application published in iAutism, if it is already written (represented with the “TEST” logo).
  • A short description of the app. This is NOT meant to be a well-thought summary but only an indication of its functionality.

This list is sponsored by

21. GENERIC LEISURE AND LEARNING
As explained in the post titled Leisure and learning apps, there are thousands of apps non-specific to people with special needs but that can be very useful for them. To compile a list of these apps would be endless. In the mentioned post we’ve included links to some long lists of such apps, and here we simply list those we have just found and had time to review in iAutism, so it can be easier to find the respective reviews.
