Print Option

This is a great app for developing quick and easy pictures for SO many words. I would love an option to print so that I can use these same symbols with a student who uses PECS.

AMAZING Resource!

Working as a speech-language pathologist in the school setting, I can say that this app is amazing!!! I just downloaded it to every device I have and can’t stop thinking of ways to use it to model, create carrier phrases, make quick symbols to go along with a book or activity, get families to communicate with each other more accessibly, etc. This app is extremely easy to use and I can’t wait to add it to the list of tools I have. Thank you for creating something that is so user friendly and will help so many!

App not working!!!!

After downloading the application two separate times it still does not work on my IPhone. Using an IPhone 8 Plus IOS 13.1.2 and have gone through the entire troubleshooting guide provided. SIRI has been enabled along with keyboard dictation. I just continues to receive the “Uh-Oh there has been an error.....” message when attempting to speak into the microphone with not further guidance on to how and fix the actual problem. Would not recommend this application.

Developer Response ,

Hello, Rachel the Teacher! Our apologies for the troubles. The app is brand new, and as such we’re still working out a few glitches.

We’re currently working on fixing this issue and it should be patched out in the next few updates so you can enjoy symboling to the symbol speakers in your life soon ✨
