PediaStaff is tickled to announce ‘TxTools‘ our very own, first (and free) App for Apple iDevices. TxTools, available now in the Apple App Store, is a free collection of tools - conveniently bundled as one app – to assist therapists in their day to day sessions with clients/students.
Now, before you get too excited, let me state up front, that we know that this is a VERY simple app. We specifically created it simple, (yet we hope extremely useful) to learn how to go through the App creation process (finding programmers, working with Apple, etc.) Now, that we understand the process we will be able to create more exciting and substantial apps for you – hopefully with your input!
So with that said, let me tell you about ‘our new baby,’ TxTools.
Currently, the app has four modules: IEP Scheduler, Age Finder, Percent Right and Tally This. (We hope to add more modules as our users suggest them, so fire away) Here are some screenshots:
IEP (or Therapy Appointment) Scheduler: When do you need to see Johnny for therapy again? Enter the date, and the number of days out you want to see him/her, and calculate!
Age Finder: Quickly and conveniently determines chronological age for clinical assessment tests
Tally This: Super simple tally tool that keeps a running total of what ever it is you want to count.
Percent Right: Tally ‘right’ and ‘wrong’ during trials to ‘know-as-you-go’ what percent your kiddo is getting correct. Great for artic trials, etc.
We are very interested in your feedback and plan to add more modules based on user feedback. In fact, the version that is currently in the App Store already has changes (like landscape rotation) suggested by therapists who tested TxTools in the past couple of weeks.
Have a suggestion? Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org to tell us what you would like to see us change or add.
