App for autism "Voice4u" won Japan's "Android Application Award"

Android App for communication of autistic people, "Voice4u", just won the top prize at "A3 (Android Application Award)", organized by Nikkei BP and sponsored by major Japanese carriers and international device vendors.

Voice4u is created by my friends Yumi Kubo and Sei Higuchi, and I have been supporting them from early on.  Yumi is mother of an autistic boy and she developed this app, as portable, affordable and "cool" tool for kids with communication problems.

And by the way, my son is working as a volunteer to help this app.  If you know anyone with autism who has problem communicating, please let her/him know about this app!
