Ratings and Reviews
Would be really good but constantly crashes
Shame this would be a really good app, but I've spent £39.99 on an app for my autistic child to help him communicate yet this crashes during the making and use of the storyboards, which is the apps purpose. Terrible shame as it would otherwise be a really good alternative to some of the other more complicated software out there. It has so much potential but as a financially stretched mum trying to do the best for my kid I'm now gutted at having seemingly wasted what to me is a large a,out of money. The 2 stars is for the potential it holds. Terrible shame.
Perfect, thank you!
This is exactly what I need for my son who has high-functioning Autusm! I was carrying around printed photos to help him understand where we'd be going next, and this makes my life much easier.
I like how the images are customizable, here in the UK we don't have the yellow school busses like back home.
It's very easy to make a storyboard, the review about zooming in to the picture is a great idea!
Perfect for my Angelman girl
Great little tool for using with my disabled daughter. Routine and foreknowledge if events are critical if she is to cope with the day. This is going straight on the ipad I'm getting for her as a comms device.
Would be great if tapping the pick in a storyboard made it full screen then tapping again sent it back into the board.
Up to six family members will be able to use this app with Family Sharing enabled.
