RadSounds is the world's greatest cause/effect music program for special needs learners. You can customize your playlist by recording or singing new music to your iPad, importing from your iPad's music library, or use the many great songs that we provide, from many types. There is Momentary mode, where the music plays for only the time you hold your finger on the iPad, Timed mode, where the music plays for a specified number of seconds upon each activation, or an advanced mode where the user chooses songs by cycling through their playlist.

RadSounds is *switch-friendly*, that is, for those with physical challenges, a switch (or button) can be plugged into our iPad Switch Interface for cordless access to switch-friendly apps.

Fantastic app!

Bobby Joe Sumpter

I'm a Special Education teacher providing home instruction and this app has provided so many opportunities to practice guided choice making and independent switch activation, while developing self-reliance for recreation and building blocks for communication exchanges. Well done developers!

I just updated my iPad with the latest iOS. I keep all my apps up to date too. Rad Sounds does indeed import my music from my iPad library with the touch of a finger and no changing anything. It's great because it works with an iPad compliant switch or by touching and holding on the screen. The visual confirmation along with the music is very motivating. I hook up iPad sound to a Blue Tooth speaker and students who have low to no hearing can feel the vibrations. The program does need resources so if other apps are open perhaps closing them will help it run better. As a music teacher I'm planning on seeing if I can get my students to make the music stop and go on visual cue after they discover their ability to control the music and image/cause and effect.

Was good, but updates are sour

I've been around awhile. I was using Radsounds on the computer long before iPads (back when having one computer in the classroom was a BIG deal!). I love it for my students. Then came the iPad and Radsounds, and I could import their favorite music from the music app straight to Radsounds "on the fly". Since Apple has updated iTunes, I cannot upload songs to Radsounds without first changing the format of the music in iTunes on my computer. RJ spoiled me with the first editions, but now says that he can't update it to the new song file formats for iTunes. My school district also changed privileges, and now I can't modify the music. I don't use this app anymore because I can't use my music. When RJ fixes this, I will review again and give Radsounds the 5 stars it should have.
