The Look At Me app, released by Samsung, that aims to improve the lives of autistic children. Autistic children struggle to convey emotions and form bonds with others, due to behavioral development problems that make it difficult for them to execute simple interactions. The app aims to aid in the development of basic social skills using a fun smartphone or tablet-based interface.

The Look At Me app utilizes Samsung devices' cameras and puts users through points-based missions. Each mission focuses on specific goals such as recognizing emotions via facial recognition or expressing feelings by mimicking emotions generated by the app.

The app is optimized for the Samsung Galaxy range, but you can still use it on non-Samsung devices. It is available for free from the Google Play store.
