FIRST iPhone/iPad App by an OT & an iPad2 or iPhone4S Giveaway!

Hi Y’all!
I’m so excited to announce that my first iPhone/iPad App called HowToDoIt™ is almost ready!  We are in the final stages of beta-testing and expect that HowToDoIt™ will be available in the AppStore in the next couple of weeks.  To celebrate this event and to get the word out, I’m giving away a FREE iPad2 or iPhone4S (winner’s choice)!

My inspiration for HowToDoIt™ was home programs.  I hate seeing poorly copied exercise sheets with some exercises crossed out and poorly written notes that are confusing to the client.  So I thought: Wouldn't it be cool if I could take pictures with my iPhone of the client actually doing the exercises and then type in the instructions specific to that client?  And wouldn’t it be cool if I could print it out as a .pdf or send it via email?  Or even post to Facebook or on a website?  Thus, HowToDoIt™ was created.

Not only will HowToDoIt™ help create home exercise programs, folks will also be able to make tutorials:

  • for all kinds of craft or home projects,
  • for favorite recipes,
  • to document progress,
  • demonstrate a procedure,
  • to make a social story or
  • memory books of special events
  • and so much more. 
Occupational therapists, physical therapists, speech language pathologists, private trainers, coaches, massage therapists, teachers, behavior specialists, Yoga/Pilates instructors, crafters, cooks, coworkers…really just about anyone…will love using this app!  Some screenshots of HowToDoIt™ are shown below and on the website, I have a couple of completed tutorials for you to see and download (there will be more tutorials in the next couple of weeks so check back regularly).
