"Look at Me" is Samsung's app for Autistic children
Samsung worked with a couple of universities in Seoul, to develop an app that helps children suffering from autism communicate better. One of the problems that autistic children have is the inability to read the emotions on other people's faces. The app, named "Look at Me," uses a series of games to help these children gauge where others stand emotionally.

Clinical trials have shown that with the use of the app, children suffering from autism had a 60% improvement in maintaining eye contact with others. Twenty children took part in the clinical trial, which lasted for eight weeks. The app uses the camera on a smartphone or tablet, and includes seven interactive games designed to keep those affected with autism, focused and engaged.

"Look at Me" is a free app that is available from the Google Play Store. It is compatible with the Samsung Galaxy S III, Samsung Galaxy S4, Samsung Galaxy S5, Samsung GALAXY Note II, Samsung Galaxy Note 3, Samsung Galaxy Note 4, Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom, Samsung Zoom2, Samsung Galaxy Tab S 10.5 and the Samsung Galaxy Tab S 8.4.

If you know someone with an autistic child, let them know about the app. It might be the most rewarding thing you do this holiday season.
