Tap-n-See Now is the first app for iPad and iPhone created specifically for children with cortical visual impairment (CVI)! The bright colors and fun pictures in this world-renowned cause and effect app will also appeal to babies and young toddlers without CVI.

Design & Game Play:
Tap-N-See Now was designed to incorporate Dr. Roman-Lantzy's common characteristics of CVI.

Adorable hand-drawn images dance around the screen one at a time, appealing to a child's preference for movement. The use of a single image against a solid background helps eliminate visual clutter while the use of highly saturated colors makes the image easier to see. Touching the image results in a reward sound as the image grows in size.

All aspects of the app are fully customizable to meet your child's needs. Both the animals and background can be set to your child's preferred color. Particular images can be chosen to adapt to the level of complexity that works best for your child. How you interact with the image and what kind of reward is triggered is also highly customizable.

All these settings make it possible for the app to adapt to your child's expanding visual and physical ability!

The settings allow you to:

Choose between 5 loveable animals or purchase any of 11 additional image packs.
Choose from a variety of highly saturated background and image colors.
Select how big the image appears on the screen.
Select how quickly the image moves around the screen.
Choose from 10 unique reward sounds to play when the image is touched.
Select from a variety of other motion and touch settings that make the app accessible even for those with limited movement.

Doesn't show purchases on iPad Pro

I recently purchased an iPad Pro and this app won't restore my purchase so all I have now is the "lite" version (alligator only). Every time I try to connect to the App Store or restore purchase from within the app I get an error message. Please fix this!

Good...but could be better

I really like this app for my young students with CVI, but I wish that it said the name of the item that the child was looking to touch. For example, when the cow is moving around a voice could say, "Find the cow." Or when the cow is tapped it could just say, "cow" and then the animal sound. I think that this could be a great app with a few changes.

Absolutely Great App

This is my go to app for kids with low vision, cortical visual impairment or kids needing to learn cause and effect. In this app you learn to visually sight and then target an animal against a choice(s) of background colors. There are many features that make this app customizable for each individual child, i.e. specific animal and background color, their size and speed, and reinforcement sounds. A really unique feature is the magnetic finger, which allows the user to tap the screen and the animal comes to the user's finger. That feature alone in teaching cause and effect - the concept of "I do, I get" at it's most beginning level is tremendous. Customer service for this app is also awesome. The developer really cares about making this app successful.
