Not worth the money
I purchased this app for my 6 year old son that has Expressive Language Disorder hoping we had found a fun interactive way to practice his speech. Unfortunately, it disappointed in many ways.
Can create multiple accounts if using for more than one child.
My children quickly learned what the buttons meant even though they couldn't read the words like, "record".
Pictures are of good quality.
You need to purchase add ons to access the entire databank of pictures. You ca purchase them all for $16.99, which, quite frankly, I think should just be included in the original app price.
If your child is not able to read full sentences, the hints function requires the parent to read the "hint". This takes away the "cool" factor for my son who can immediately see this is atop, and not a game because mom has to hover over him.
The recording feature can easily be replicated using the free video recorder on the iPad. And my son prefers this as he gets to watch himself and hear his own voice.
I really feel like I wasted my money on this. Hopefully this review will help other parents save their money. Could be a good app for a teacher's aid or slp.
Great app to show students how to create sentences. Would love to see text to speech so nonreaders can use this app too.
