APPlicator for iPad music and photos

Applicator iPad Switch DeviceThe APPlicator is a brilliant iDevice accessory and we’ve just added it to the catalogue on Special Needs Toys.

I’m a big fan of the APPlicator because it gives the user switch access to music playlists and the camera on the iPad, iPhone or iPod Touch as well as switch access to adapted apps used in education or home use.

It works with:

  • iPad
  • iPod Touch 4th and 5th generation
  • iPhone 3GS, 4, 5 and 6
  • iOS 6, 7 and 8

Get in touch for more information on the APPlicator and how it works in music and photo modes.

Large button switch accessible Apple TV

Ever wanted to access digital media such as music, YouTube videos, your own photos and lots of others stuff through an Apple TV set-up. So did I after seeing one demoed at an exhibition.

Normally that would be a problem; but not anymore. There’s a very simple solution based on the Domino Universal infra-red remote.

Take a look at this set-up.Domino-Apple-TV-Set-Up

I’ve taught Domino the control codes used by the Apple TV remote to navigate around the menu. Now, everything you need to do using the Apple remote can be done by Domino. With the added advantage of the large buttons or switch accessibility for those users that prefer or need to use switches.
