ReacTickles Magic is a suite of applications that use touch, gesture and audio input to encourage interactive communication. The overarching goal of ReacTickles Magic is to allow users to playfully explore the magical possibilities of the system without prior knowledge or skill with technology. The variety of input modes reward any action with a dynamic array of animated shapes and patterns. Important information for users - in order to return to the interface, or to move up and down modes, the < symbols at the bottom left, and top/bottom right of the screen must be held down for at least 3 seconds. This is to make interaction distinct from the free form touch exploration of ReacTickles Magic.

ReacTickles has been developed by a research and design team with many years experience of developing interfaces that encourage meaningful interaction. The design has involved children and adults on the autistic spectrum, who have reported the benefits of being able to use ReacTickles for relaxation and learning about cause and effect. The inclusiveness of the design is far-reaching and has been adopted by healthcare professionals, teachers and parents. ReacTickles Magic was funded through the Rayne Foundation and Cardiff Metropolitan University.

A superb special needs app.


Just brilliant. For use with pupils on the autistic spectrum, SEN pupils and everyone else!
Touch screen reactive, voice reactive.
It is also free, which is superb.
I'm ICT coordinator in a large special needs school and would recommend this to anyone in the field.
