Georgia Tech Offers “Tools for Life” App Finder

appsthe Tools for Life Appfinder, available at Tools for Life, the Georgia Assistive Technology Project, is a very useful web-based search engine for apps! You can search by name, device type, or function. It’s also possible to limit the search by price (FREE, up to $4.99, up to 9.99 or ALL.)

There are also options to add an app, rate an app and offer comments and suggestions.

Researching and locating new apps can be an overwhelming task. “Our Favorite Apps” database promises to help make your app search much easier. This database is a unique tool that will allow you to search for apps by disability or multiple disabilities as well as by price ranges and device types. Every app housed in this database has been used and/ or tested by one or more members of the Tools for Life team along with many of our peers from across the country including members of other Assistive Technology (AT) Act Programs, physical, occupational and speech language therapists; AT professionals; people with disabilities and other leaders in the disability community. You will also find reviews and comments from apps users across the country to help you make informed decisions before purchasing and using an app. With so many apps available, our Tools for Life App database will also link you to other app databases that were designed for specific disabilities.

Tools for Life also offers two other helpful resource pages:

Our Other Favorite Apps: A short list of links to other resources of helpful apps for specific disabilities (e.g. autism and dyslexia) or other app review sites

Helpful Links:  A variety of links and links to helpful videos (e.g. Voice Over Basics, Proloquo2Go e-Learning Videos
