Snap + core first

Excellent app!

Well researched, vocabulary placed appropriately, logical. Really like the search feature with the flashlight/breadcrumb trail to show you where the vocab sits. Good use of bringing some features of compass across so it isn’t a totally different system to learn. We have a few pupils using Snap +Core First and we are really happy with it. Another advantage of using this system is the companion app, Pathways, which is free. Good value for money if you combine the 2 apps under the same cost!

It was a great app initially but about a week ago it crashes and now just kicks us out without even opening, a week before I have surgery and need the app for communication. Judging by the other comments the app hasn’t been updated for years, I have no back up of all the custom parts I have ready for surgery, my food, none of it and so paid over £50 for software that’s now useless.
