Smurks App (Autism)

New 'Smurks' app helps people with disabilities express their emotions |

Smurks is an iPhone/iPad app that lets a little face show emotions. It is helping those who have difficulty communicating their feelings due to their disabilities.

The yellow-orange face was created by a cartoonist whose goal was to designed a simple symbol of texting emotions for the general public. It has become a great therapy tool for children and adults with autism spectrum disorder and other emotional challenges.

Launched earlier this year, Smurks enabled users to move a face to express their feelings via text, e-mail, Facebook and Twitter.
