Thank you

I just wanted to say thank you to the developers for making these apps. My mother is in and out of the hospital a lot with her MS, and usually for the majority of the stay she is on her ventilator. I know this is going to make her life a lot easier, as well as gice my dad and i some peace of mind during the unfortunate times when one of cannot be there with her. Thank you so much for this and also for offering this and the companion programs for free. Just one more reason the iPad is changing the lives of people with various disabilities and improving thier quality of life. To give someone a voice again is a wonderful thing. Thank you from me and my family.

Must have app

This app is a must have! I love this app. I like how it's free, simple to use, and adult friendly. It has phrases and pictures I can press and it speaks very clearly for others to hear. Thank you!
