Touch Switch Android
About the App:
Touch switch is a button that when pressed displays one for 10 random stimulating videos accompanied by one of 14 random musical selections. Video and music will play for a user specified amount of time, regardless of how often the screen is accidentally touched during that time. After the time elapses you are returned to the button, that you must touch again to reactivate it.
The touchable activation area is actually larger than the button. The actual area covers almost all of the screen, to accommodate users with lesser developed motor skills.
The button provides a good instance of cause and effect. You hit the button => you see a stimulating video and hear music. It's great for encouraging the user to take the action of touching the screen.
It also serves as a reward for higher level users. You do a math problem, you get to touch the button. You walk across the balance beam, you get to touch the button.
In the settings, a user can customize the duration of the music and video. The options are 7 seconds, 15 seconds, 30 seconds, 45 seconds and 60 seconds.
You can customize the text on the button. By default the button is blank, but you can enter text in the user preferences section to add a label such as "Go" or "Johnny" or "Push".
From the settings menu you can choose to rotate the button to a landscape view. The button does not rotate on the fly to prevent rotate-stimming.
You can also change the app's volume in the user preferences.

Sometimes the video takes a second to start, is that normal?

I don't hear any sound!
Click on the the little (i) button in the bottom corner and make sure you don't have the volume down on the device. Also, make sure the switch on the side of the device isn't locked into mute.
