A valuable resource for Autism Spectrum Disorder

While not designed exclusively for the ASD community, the emotionary app is proving to be an excellent resource.

According to Professor Attwood, world leading authority on Asperger's syndrome, the emotionary app has "value for those with an Autism Spectrum Disorder from Asperger's syndrome to even severe autism." 

We'd love to hear more from our users, there's an in app feedback link. Please let us know how you feel about it.

Helping to break the "emotional storm" of autism, and making life easier.

Review posted on the US iTunes store
Sep 26, 2013 by ASHLEY

Favorite app *****

"I use this app regularly to communicate to others how I'm feeling without needing to get into an involved conversation. 

I am autistic and emotions are difficult for me to articulate in the moment. This app helps me change "I'm angry" to "actually, I'm more frustrated and worried." 

The granularity of emotion definition helps me identify and label the different emotions experienced in a moment rather than just being overwhelmed and shutting down. 

This also helps me understand and choose the correct steps to resolve the problem (in the case of negative emotions) or identify behavior to continue (for positive emotions.) 

I love using the cards with the emoticons. I would like it if all the emotions were available in card format even without an associated emoticon. That would make it possible to show exactly what I feel. 

I like how the cards are color-coded, too. 

It's easy to say "I am having too many green emotions" or "today is an orange day." 

It's a lot easier for me to have a conversation about solutions to what is bothering me when I am able to break the emotional storm into its individual parts and understand how they are working together. 

These cards in this app make my life easier."
