Dementia makes it difficult to concentrate on things like step by step commands and remembering things.
Flashing lights and movement holds the users attention, while music aids memory retention.

So this app allows them to press one of 9 flashing squares and play differet songs in mp3 format.
The music stops and encourages the user to press another button. They gain confidence that they are in control of something.
There are NO included in-app purchases or Ad's in this app, as it confuses someone with dementia.

It is not limited to those with dementia, Children and older members of the community might also like these features.

Nine Public Domain tunes are included on loading, but you can delete them and replace them with your own songs, as long as they are renamed 1.mp3 to 9.mp3.
They need to be included in the "Music" directory on the internal memory drive.

They can also select any music file from the scrollable Music directory located above the 9 coloured squares, by flicking through them and pressing the required song.
This lists ALL mp3 files in the Music directory and the subdirectories without searching for them.
A Volume control is also included between the Choose and Stop Buttons.

This updated app works on android above version 4.01 and replaces Dementia Player 1 and 2 and Demo versions, as all the facilities are now included in this one version.

The app works on mobile phones as well as Tablet computers running Android, both in Landscape and Portrait modes, to suit the user.
Version 4 corrects some file loading problems which throw up an error on loading.

I have no way of preventing the hardware buttons (Home, Back and running programs) from being used, so it may be a good idea to cover them up with cardboard, to prevent accidental use.

No money is charged for this app.
