The TippyTalk app is the first of its kind; we are the first communication tool that removes the person living with the verbal disability from the limitations of same room communication and opens the door to the world around them.
How it works
Our app allows a person living with a verbal disability to communicate by translating pictures into text messages which are then sent to a family member or care givers phone or tablet. The app allows you the parent our caregiver to capture images that are uniquely identifiable and familiar to the person living with the verbal disability. You simply take a picture of an object, place, or person and apply the appropriate text. You can also reinforce language development by recording your voice over each picture insuring the person living with the disability will recognize and understand the message.
This communication is not restricted by distance the person living with the verbal disability can communicate with whomever they chose no matter where they may be in the world.
TippyTalk is unique in that it removes the person with the verbal disability from the limitations of same room communication and by doing so increases and promotes Communication, Independent choice, and Social inclusion, while also reducing the frustration for the person and the family living with the verbal disability.
No two TippyTalkers will be the same, each unit is extremely user friendly and simply to program. Putting the control back into the hands of the parent, after all no one knows their loved ones better than you do. No other product on the market today is offering the personalization, social-communication and independence that TippyTalk is providing. We are breaking down communication barriers by allowing the user to connect and communicate with two or more parties at the same time, while ensuring that this communication is not limited by distance or physical impairment.
**NOTE** The edit function in the app can be accessed by swiping in from the left of the screen and pressing the button that appears. If you forget your pin it can be reset by pressing the forgot pin and entering the master pin 1289.

Ratings and ReviewsSee All
Tippy Talk has revolutionized communication for my daughter and our family. There is nothing quite like the feeling of hearing my phone 'ding' when a new text message arrives and looking down to see a message from my daughter. She is able to tell me her feelings, what she wants to do, what should wants to eat, etc. I love that I can personalize it to words she knows by simply uploading relevant images off the Internet and the option to use my voice to describe each picture is so cool...much better than a robotic voice I've heard on some other apps we've tried. Also, Tippy Talk allows her to communicate with family members that don't live close to us. I am so grateful for this app and would highly recommend it for anyone with a verbal communication difficulties:)
This program is a great idea, I would like to use it for my son. It needs to have a back button though when you are in each page as well as a way to exit after an item is sent. The check mark sits forever and it would be helpful if it would go back to the home person screen after. Also, the subscription price is a lot considering you have to add all the pics yourself. More words or a picture database would be helpful to add items under the categories easier. Thank you again for this great idea!

Please contact me I have a lot I would like to discuss with you.You can contact me at email@example.com I feel we both would benefit from the conversation. Just ask for John.
Great idea poor execution
I believe this is a great idea, which is the one star rating however I believe it's not ready yet. There's a viral video of your product making it feel like you're getting something, but in reality you're not. You're paying for a monthly SMS service however parents with special needs children can't afford subscriptions. Spending $252 a year on an app subscription isn't feasible with all other special needs bills - equipment, therapy, school etc. The app needs to be developed and personalized more before someone can make the commitment to paying for a subscription. The kinks should be worked out before asking to pay. Many apps make it free for users while they develop and work out kinks and charge once ready. Seems like this app has a lot of growing to do.

TippyTalk is available for free over the first 30 days. If you are happy with TippyTalk and continue with our service after the 30 days, you will be charged based on the subscription you choose. (monthly or yearly) if you do not want to be charged you just simple cancel the app through your Apple account at any stage within the trial period.
The process of choosing the subscription option of monthly or yearly, before the 30-day free trial, is standard practice on the iTunes app store. We must follow the app store rules just like everyone else. Also, you do not have to wait 29 days to cancel, you can choose to do this at any stage, and continue with the trial. If you would like to talk you can contact me on info@tippy-talk to arrange a Skype or phone call. Hope to hear from you.
