Today (April 2nd) is World Autism Awareness Day, and as usual iOS developers are once again offering steep discounts on their apps geared toward autistic individuals.
Although Autism is something that affects just about everyone, whether it be yourself, a family member, co-worker or friend, it is often ignored or just misunderstood. Odds someone in your life is Autistic and perhaps you don’t even know it. Every year, April 2nd is the day that we try to raise awareness across the world with unique fundraising events and app developers from around the globe have either reduced the prices of their Apps, or are offering to donate portions of today’s sales to Autism Awareness.
Here is a the list of 100+ participating apps that we’ve found thus far and the folks at iautism.info have an even more comprehensive list with apps broken down by category, reviews of some of the apps and links to alternate language versions of some of these apps. The majority of these titles have been specifically designed for children and adults with Autism to aid them with skills like communication, scheduling, expressing emotions and behavior.
If you are a developer participating in the promotion, please let us know so we can add your app to the list below.
