    My son recently had a major stroke leaving him mute and quadriplegic. He has always been very computer oriented so I bought him an IPAD for entertainment, but I would also like an app that basically splits the screen in half with one half indicating YES and the other half indicating NO so he can press the response he chooses with the limited movement he has in one hand.

    Anyone know of anything that would fit the bill?

    Sorry to hear about your son. Just a thought, but what about one of the simple music apps like Bebop where a touch to the left or right produces quite different musical tones. This might give you what you need. Might also be fun for your son.

    Cheers,

    I am so sorry to hear about your son, it must be very tough.

    I did some searching for you, and I found an app made specifically (well not for someone with a stroke, but the same problem) for what you are asking:

    App Shopper: Answers:YesNo (Utilities)

    I'm pretty sure this is an iPhone app; however, you just hit the 2x zoom button and I'm pretty sure the less pretty graphics aren't going to matter for something this simple. And once you hit 2x one time it will always load at full screen.

    The YES|No app is perfect. He is able to use it like a champ and we are now finally (after months) able to have a way for him to communicate that is consistent. It is amazing to me how wired he is to technology, even after the stroke. If I gave him a piece of paper and asked him to point to yes|no, sometimes he would, sometimes not, but with his IPAD that he loves he is 100% consistent and loves that it speaks for him since he can't speak for himself.

    THANK YOU!

    You could create it with NUMBERS for iPad.
    One of the built in functions is a logic true false or yes no. Just use that and make it fill screen with display options.

    Glad that it works. It makes me feel better that I actually did something worthwhile with my day yesterday.

    We solved it yesterday.

    We'll make you an app for free

    I'm a nurse and my husband makes apps so I'm going to design an app that is made for your son and others. It will be free too. It's going to take us a few days and then Apple's two week review time but keep checking. My heart goes out to you.

    We finished it on Wed and submitted it to Apple.

    It is not strictly yes and no but it has huge yes and no buttons at the top and stock phrases.

    You can also add custom phrases and it has a separate page which is a white board to draw on and email.

    We submitted it as "Phrase Pad". It will be a free app.

    I hope to add audio later on.
