Visual Steps is a tool used to create step-by-step instructions, including 
video models, for completing a task.  Because the steps are user defined, 
the level of detail and frequency of prompting can be customized to a 
particular individual and/or task.  A photo, text, audio and/or video can be 
associated with each step.  

Live Tiles for individual tasks can be pinned to the start screen and will 
be updated automatically to include the count of steps yet to be completed.

Use Visual Steps:  as part of an "on the job" training program to help 
employees learn new tasks; to teach activities of daily living to people 
with disabilities and the elderly; as a readily accessible visual record of 
a complex process.

Once a user has learned a task, Visual Steps can be used as a check list to 
help maintain skill performance and promote independence.
 
Creating tasks is done completely on the phone. Tasks created on one phone can be copied to other phones running Visual Steps (requires a OneDrive account).   All of the functionality is available over a WiFi connection (telephone service is not required).

Trial version is limited to 2 Groups, 2 Tasks and 3 Steps per task.

    Great app - very helpful for my son with autism.

    My son is using this app to complete tasks at work. The app prompts him, so now he no longer needs a job coach to remind him what to do next.

    Great app! The ability to add a timer for each step is a really nice feature. I am using it in an exercise routine to add timed breaks between different activities.

    Very useful App!

    Finally, an app that really helps my kid! I used it to create a wash up routine that includes a step, with video, for brushing his teeth. Now my son follows along with the video and I don't have to be there telling him what to do.

    Just what I needed for my Mom to help keep her on track when she is getting ready in the morning.

    Training new hires? Waste of time. Every task that I need my employees to complete is able to be added to this app since it was expanded to 25 groups. I add pictures, voice, and video to each step, so that there is no confusion. Awesome App!

    This is exactly what I have been looking for to help my autistic child. This app let's me break down a task into steps he can handle and add video for a step if he needs it.

    I made the difficult decision to trade in my iPhone for a windows phone, so that I could use this app and Visual Tokens (another app by the same developer). My goal next year will be to get my school and clients to make the switch. I am able to create task analysis and reinforcement plans with text, pictures, sound recording and videos. My students are able to independently navigate their routines with a cellphone, which is much less stigmatizing. I will definitely be contacting the developer with ideas for additional apps that will benefit my teaching and students.

    Mind bendingly hard to understand. The UI design is so confusing that I don't even know where to start... In fact its so confusing that I have to assume that this is a completely broken build.
