Ratings and Reviews
Good AAC app
This is an app that can be used for communication, for picture schedules and for first-then activities. The picture sizes can be changed to 5 different sizes. It is easy to add pictures and record voice output for each picture. I really like the first-then feature. I can see this app used both by parents and in school settings. Overall I like the app. My only concern is that having the word in the middle of each pictures tends to "block" the picture. I wish that there was some choice of where the word could be placed, either at the top or bottom.
Great features but no SEARCH function :( 4 stars with that added
I picked this up for FREE and was surprised at all the great features, options (a first-then and schedule option!!) and customization of icon sizes, color etc. I also like the history feature where a user's utterances, or even past first-then boards, or schedules, can be pulled up for use again, along with info a helper can edit to include whether the utterance was independent, or prompted-that is a unique feature. One MAJOR glaring error though-which means I sadly won't be using it because it is not convenient the way it is currently set up- there is no SEARCH function to make it easy to quickly add photos on the fly with the schedule and first-then options-two features which really make this app awesome, as everything is all in one place. Right now you have to scroll through all the existing icons to the bottom, where the icons you save go... If you add a search feature I would definitely recommend this to those who want an all-in-one communication set up, and are willing to put in the time to customize it with their own vocabulary.
Great AAC app!
This app is actually 3 apps for the price of one. It's a visual schedule builder, first then board, and an AAC app all in one. If your student/child is very visual and can make multiple level choices in a communication app, this might be the app of choice for you! If you had this app on an iPad that will go between home and school, it could potentially used as a stand alone communication device.
One can create clear visual schedules that can be saved. When the schedule changes, it's easy to modify the schedule by moving the activities into a different order, adding a new activity or deleting an activity.
The first then board will be a helpful when positive behavior support is needed. One can save the boards and return to them later. They are easily edited as well.
Last, but not least, this app can be used as an alternative augmentative communication device on your iPad. It's easy to customize with your own pictures and voice. Frequently used requests/statements can be saved for repeated use. You can have 2 to 24 icons with custom font size and color on each page.
I like the ability to set the "touch and hold" feature to prevent accidental activation of unwanted icons.
This is a very affordable option for AAC! One of a handful of app options I will use when trialing different AAC apps/devices during AT and AAC evaluations.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
