Good but not great

Definitely a good app, but I wish I hadn't paid $29 for it. For $29, I thought there would be a LOT LOT more to it... Its more worth $10. There aren't nearly enough pictures or ways to put sentences together. The $29 was way too much to pay. However, I do like that you can add your own pictures, I do like that you can edit, and it does give you a decent base of pictures to start with. I really hope that free updates will include more pictures and more functionality to the app. It was a nice try though... but it does need a lower price.

Our daughter has Angelman Syndrome and is non-verbal, this app has truely changed our lives ! She is finally able to effectively communicate with us. She knows pictures and this app allows us to download pics from our camera or pull directly from google. Her speech therapist and teacher at school say it has really helped with her progress and they love how easy it is to use. They go on and pull up pics to help her participate in class almost daily. The storyboards have been great to help with her schedules and completing task. We can also set up choice boards for her. She feels like such a big girl and I can tell she is very proud when she can use this all by herself to tell us what she wants and needs! We have used tons of devices with her over the years and this is by far the best and easiest for her, and us.
Thank you so much for making such a wonderful app and for making it so affordable. Having a child with special needs is such a financial burden, so we really appreciate such a wonderful gift. I just can't say enough about it and have recommended it to our ESE Department at school and to others we know that will benefit from it...Thank you , Thank you, Thank you

Great app--a must have if your child has autism!

Thank you developers for a fantastic app! I have a number of apps downloaded on my iPad for my autistic son, and iCommunicate is by far the most useful and easy to use. My son is only 26 months old, yet he is able to enjoy the program. The add-on for the sound is a must have and extremely easy to record--hearing our voices with the pictures keeps him engaged and interested. For example, the program is so versatile that we could use the built-in function to get a google image of "Itsy Bitsy Spider", and then we used the record function to record us singing the song to him. All he has to do is touch the picture, and he is rewarded with a song! Also, the developers responded almost immediately to a concern I had, and I have no doubt that they will continue to make this program even better. I HIGHLY recommend this application--thanks developers!!!
