MagnusCards is an innovative new smartphone autism app that is designed to help people living with autism, as well as other cognitive conditions, to carry out different day-to-day tasks.

Developed by Nadia Hamilton, whose brother Troy lives with autism and doesn't have the ability to communicate verbally, the MagnusCards autism app offers step-by-step guides to enable users to negotiate day-to-day life in different environments. The app is looking to partner with different organizations to accomplish this, with the Pearson International Airport in Toronto already signing up to make travel easier for people with autism.

Ultimately, this app is a fine example of how smartphone technologies can be used to empower people living with cognitive disabilities.
