Accessibility Minute - Assistive Technology Tips and Tricks for Everyone

208-11-4-16 iDress for Weather App

Hey there! Welcome to Accessibility Minute, your weekly look at Assistive Technology, those clever tools and devices designed to help people who have difficulties with vision, mobility, hearing or other special needs!

If you're searching for a fun app to help teach your child what to wear according to the weather, look no further than the iDress for Weather app! iDress for Weather was developed to help increase independence among children and adults with or without special needs! It helps teach individuals the connections between weather conditions and clothing by using bold, brightly colored images.

The developers understand that everyone experiences temperatures differently - what is cold to one person isn't cold for the next. The iDress for Weather app allows users to define what is hot, warm, cool, cold, and really cold. It is easily customizable throughout, which makes it ideal for individuals of all abilities in all climates!

Because the app solely uses images throughout with minimal text, it is noted to be globally accessible. To learn more, check it out on iTunes!
