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.
Thank you for this app!
Reactickles Magic is a magical app that is fantastic for kids learning cause and effect, visual targeting and tracking and those needing to just chill out. Initiate movement on the screen with geometric shapes in 10 different settings using voice, movement or even simply targeting and dragging of your hand, foot or finger. Love that it is so versatile for kids that have difficulty meeting complex motor demands. And it is wonderfully silent - which I think gently encourages the child to voice and doesn't overwhelm the senses for kids who have problems with processing when there is too much going on in the background. There are no IAPs or ads. Definitely recommended.
Cool concept but not working
The touch aspect seems to work, except I cannot get out of a screen once I am in it without shutting down the app. Also there are no instructions on how to use the voice activation. It works in the settings but when a screen is up it is not working.
This app gets stuck doesn't progress
