Visual Attention TherAppy

December 2014 Update: This app has been updated! It’s name is now Visual Attention Therapy (instead of TherAppy). There are more colors to choose from for the flashing or solid signal, different styles for canceled targets (e.g., completely removed from screen/blank, faded, crossed out, etc). Last but not least, there is now an option for maximizing font to make it as big on the screen as possible for the spacing and number of lines you have selected!

I’ll admit, this is one of those apps that I was looking forward to weeks (maybe even months?) before it was released. Not only is it by a developer whose other products I have enjoyed, but it also appears to be the first app of its kind. In addition, it has personal importance for me, as I have an aunt who was recently diagnosed with right neglect. Needless to say, I was allllll over this app the day it came out. Thankfully, it has more than held its own so far, and I am thrilled Tactus Therapy provided a copy for a giveaway, too!
