This app is a huge help!!

I am so thankful for this app. My daughter has autism and having social stories has made different situations much easier for her. To have so many social stories in an easy to use app- that she can even navigate herself, is so helpful. From day to day life, to doctor visits, it covers a huge range of social stories I otherwise would have spent hours making! My daughter is 12 and uses it herself. If you are a family that needs to add the visual component of social stories, I highly recommend this app. It really makes a difference.

Not very “modern”

App seems very out-dated and basic. Not sure this is really helpful to anyone but perhaps a very young child with a disability. Certainly not helpful in teaching teens or adults with disabilities Independence.
The concept is great, but I was very disappointed in the quality and “Cards” available. Especially considering the time this app has been available (I saw a review from 5 years ago). I would give zero stars if possible.

We do have many teenage and adult users who are currently using and benefiting from MagnusCards. Having said that, we are always working on improvements and updates (a major one coming soon, be sure to check back!), and would love to connect with you to gain more specific feedback on what you feel needs improvement. Please feel free to reach out to and we can set up a time to chat!
