January 2014: CanTunes is now free. Spread the word!
CanTunes provides an extremely simplified way for people with a range of cognitive disabilities to select and play music on an iPad. CanTunes promotes independence, builds confidence and reduces the need for caregiver interaction by enabling people with disabilities to control and enjoy their own music.
CanTunes plays the music that is on your iPad. Once you have downloaded your favourite music to your iPad and installed CanTunes, you can easily choose an album to play by simply tapping on the album cover.
