Love the app, but i think it could use one little tweak

It's a wonderful app, very easy to use, one of the most useful ive seen so far for either verbal or non verbal children . however my son has been working on putting sentences together. It would be nice to have the option of a sentence strip, something they could place the pictures on if they flip through the pages, if you have for example food choices on a page and let's say your first pec choice is I want then they could line their food choice next to it and we add one for please after. so once he's made his choice he has a sentence he can look at and possibly say instead of having all the options that he doesnt want in between.

Best Free AAC App You'll Find Anywhere!

This app comes with preloaded pictures, boards and sayings that are fairly generic and not PCS, however you can edit, link, record, and it's completely customizable. You can put a picture you take with your camera as a button, and record your voice to say what you want when it's pushed, and link that button to a separate page such as "I want" > "movies"> "Tangled." My son prefers this app over TouchChat currently because the borders are wider between buttons which makes them easier to see. Play with this first before you decide on paying for TouchChat, Alexicomm or LAMP! I've done 3 out of 4 and SoundingBoard is still top pick.

WONDERFUL. Worth a try

This is well worth downloading, and trying out. have been looking for so long for a free app, that gives a genuine chance for review before purchase. This is the first one ever. THANKS SO MUCH. This allows to explore the app’s capability, but more importantly to explore the user’s capability before spending money or being forced to subscribe, which not possible where I work. Efforts like this deserve support.
