The "I have Aphasia" App
By Dogfish Mobile Ltd
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
The "I have Aphasia" app is designed to be used on your iPhone, iPod or iPad so you can inform people you meet about aphasia. It opens a short animated film explaining Aphasia, which was produced by Tayside Healthcare Arts Trust with the Tap and Talk Aphasia iPad Group at the University of Dundee. The video is one and a half minutes long, short enough to show it and set the scene before a conversation. You have the choice of a male or a female voice to speak the movie text, you can stop the movie at any time, and you can share it using the controls within the app. All stop motion animations in the movie were created by the Tap and Talk Aphasia iPad Group during animation workshops. We hope this app will help you when you introduce yourself to people who don't know you and know little or nothing about aphasia. Please send us feedback and ideas using the feedback function of the app.
A short video to introduce yourself and aphasia
This is a lovely little app that allows you to play a short video to someone who doesn't know you and your aphasia. It has only the basic functionlaity need for this: Play, pause and restart the video, volume control (Apple actually refused the app initially because it did not have enought functionality...).
The fact that the video is an app allows you to place it anywhere on the homescreen so it's easy to find and can be played timely.
There are two more functions available: Share - send the app store address to anyone you think might be interested in the app, and Feedback - the group who made the app is looking for input and ideas on how to improve the app in the future.
