The app is geared to help in three distinct ways; improve recognition of the emotion, the meaning behind the emotion and then the speed at which the individual can interpret the emotion.

Features include

> 9 different emotions

> 36 levels

> Simple and intuitive gameplay

> Rich array of soundtracks and scenarios
