Blindfold Games: The games are back! (#224)

IEP Process :  ECC Games for Visually Impaired Students

IEP Technologies is our new organization where we are building Expanded Core Curriculum games for vision impaired students, based on each child’s IEP . 

The child’s advancement in acquiring skills in our education-based games are stored in a private secure cloud, accessible to the school team in a web-based console . 

If you are a TVI , press for more details on trying these types of games as a tool for maximizing student outcomes, relating to their 
504 school plan

The games are back

I received a call from Adam on Friday night, and he said the review team had a chance to look at the Blindfold Games again, and understood why they are separate apps, and that the games can continue.  He mentioned games address a need that’s not normally considered by most app designers, and acknowledged how the games are focused on the needs of the visually impaired community.

New updates will be processed, and new games will be reviewed as before.   I’ll go into more details about the discussion in a blog next week, but I wanted to get the word out to everyone.

I want to thank the everyone for contacting Apple and spreading the word about the games.  I have heard from so many people – far more than I had hoped – telling me how much the games mean to them, and how they appreciate my efforts.  It has meant a lot to me, and I truly thank you.

Have a great weekend!




  1. Hi, Marty, this is great news. I had fun emailing Apple to tell them how much the games mean to me especially when riding or flying or waiting for doctor or a ride. The games have provided hours of entertainment, stimulation and challenge. I’m glad they did the right thing. Keep up the **great work.

  2. This is amazing news!!!!!! I’m so happy. I can’t tell you how many apps that I can no longer get because they weren’t updated with IOS11. Thanks for all the amazing games. My bank account probably wouldn’t appreciate me thanking you though. Keep up the great work. I love the layout of your apps, just saying.

  3. I am very glad to see that Apple listened and thought about this in more depth. Are use blindfold games to help me go to sleep at night. I also use fireworks to help me destress and get my anger out. Thank you once again for all of your games.

  4. I am really into these games! They help me with stress and when I am bored. I hope they are around forever, They are really fun!!

  5. Truly fantastic news! You have helped me see the appeal certain games offer sighted people. Keep cranking them out!

  6. I am very excited to hear this, I was fully cited as a kid and play and lots of card games and board games, but now I am in my 40s and I am pretty much blind totally, just some light perception, so I love playing all the games that are used to when I had full site as a kid

  7. This is such good news! I am really pleased! Well done mate. Yes, we really appreciate the games. And I’m not even nobody won four games like this, so for me to say it, they must be brilliant.
