Ratings and Reviews
Nice but needs a little work
I think this app is going to be useful. I would like to see the keyboard design stage in qwerty format. The abc order slows me down. Bluetooth works to name folders and keyboards, but not within buttons. When editing my keyboard, I was not able to replace buttons that I had previously deleted. I would like to be able to put picture and text in the same button.
This is going to be one of my favorite apps! I love that I can design for my KG student as well as my 9th grade student within the same app. Nicely done and worth the price!
This is a great app. I like that it can be used with kids who have varying ages and skill levels when it comes to typing, spelling, and communication. It has great visual and verbal feedback. In addition, Cheryl the developer has been very helpful with any questions I have had! I would recommend this app to anyone.
This is a GREAT APP! We use it at home and mom son's teachers love it! My son now writes better than he speaks! Thanks to this app, I know more about him! Awesome!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
