SCIENTIFICALLY-PROVEN LEARNING TECHNIQUES
Speech Blubs uses video modelling to create an immersive learning environment, allowing children to observe their peers on video as they learn. When children watch their peers in real time, their MIRROR NEURONS fire up. This is scientifically proven to be highly effective in speech development, as confirmed by the University of California, Los Angeles study published by the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA).

And "Hello+Ola" to all bilinguals kids and to those that would like to practice Spanish as their second language.
We went all in and recorded hundreds of videos of Spanish speaking kids, translated all our short stories, and adapted our bonus videos, which now also include Spanish voiceover.
Your child can now also learn their second language within Speech Blubs. With a single subscription, you get access to 3 language options. Choose between (1) American and (2) British English accent, or (3) Spanish language.
To change Speech Blubs into another language (US, UK or ES), set your device's language to the desired language, then install the Speech Blubs. Once the app has been installed, you can set your device's language to any you want, and the app will keep the language of the installation.
That's a lot of new stuff for one single update, so please open our app right away and start blubbing. And if you happen to notice any glitches, let us know, we'll award you with a free month.
Ratings and Reviews
UPDATE on having trouble accessing my subscription.
I had an issue with accessing my subscription. I am happy that the issue was remedied. Customer support was via email back and forth, very professional and thoughtful in servicing me. THANKS Juan! I am relieved because I REALLY love this app. It is a great support for my son. My child was diagnosed autistic at 3 1/2, he is four and non verbal. However, he is very expressive and show interest in communicating with others, ESPECIALLY other children. He pays attention, something very hard to get him to do and is eager to do the activities. So, the design of this app where children are featured is perfect. I appreciate their are different aged and race of children. I want him exposed to people that look different from him and like him. I never forgot that his autism specialist says... “children learn best from other children.” So this supports that fact. My son started off at the speech therapist. It just isn’t for him right now, but speech blurbs is. It’s actually preparing him for the speech therapist should I choose/need to go at a later time. So, I recommend this for you parents that find that their child isn’t responding to speech therapy. I am experiencing that this will help my child to not be reluctant to engage with an adult. Great app!

Hello Jenelle, thank you for your feedback and honest description! We are truly happy to read your words and really happy your son is enjoying Speech Blubs. Also, as a personal note, I would like to thank you for your patience during the issue with your subscription, and I am happy that we managed to solve it successfully. I wish you a great day!
We’ve had our daughter evaluated by a speech therapist, and she’s currently in speech therapy once a week.
I stumbled across this app, and thought “there’s no way”. So I downloaded it. AND I paid for the $10/month subscription, because $10 isn’t much when you’re talking about your children’s development and speech progress, especially if they are falling behind. I decided to test the app, and my daughter. Because I already knew where she was struggling, and while I can’t say that my daughter learned 5 new words in 5 minutes, I can say that this app is VERY promising. I learned that my daughter has way more comprehensive skills than I knew within 17 minutes of using the app. Also, the “evaluation” questions (if answered HONESTLY) were spot on for my daughter. Other than the comprehensive part, but that was because I didn’t know. This is a great learning tool. It’s not a teacher, and doesn’t replace ACTUAL real life learning, but it does help.
Also, I NEVER write reviews for Apps. But I couldn’t wait to write this one.

Wooohooo! Thank you so much for this beautiful review! You just managed to put a smile on all of our faces and we are truly grateful for that and for your support. We are truly happy to hear you decided on giving our app a shot and you feel like it could benefit your daughter. We cannot wait for you to see the first results. Our assessment was made with the help of real SLPs from different countries so the results you got were, as you stated in this review, spot on! Again, we are incredibly happy to hear such nice words and positive feedback from our customers. We wish you all the best and loads of fun with our app!
Not worth the money
If this app was less expensive, I’d consider keeping it, but at $10/mo and so many weird issues, I don’t think it’s worth it. I did some research and there are a lot of vague/gray area comments on this app being recommended by therapists but many speech pathologists have spoken out against these claims as this app was not created by or with one. Some of the kids pronunciation is off and the sound is quiet and uneven on several of the recordings compared to the others. Additionally, the fact that they use a computer generated voice for the the videos that give you facts is lazy. The section on feelings lazily uses emojis instead of kids faces for some and aren’t the most accurate. I think this app could use some more fine tuning from a technical stand point as well as implementation of having real backing from legitimate therapists. I realize most of these complaints I listed aren’t a huge deal but for an app you’re spending $10 per month for, I expected more. Apparently they had a prior app that was similar and was $6.99/flat fee. I might have done that.

Hi, thank you so much for reaching out to us! We are more than happy to answer your concerns. We believe our price is fair since parents are usually satisfied with the results they get from our app. We help kids make their first sound, and words, and there’s value in that. Check the positive testimonials on our App Store. And also on our website (speechblubs.com) where we gather them from all over the world. An hour of therapy can cost even more than $100 / hour. Secondly, our app was designed in collaboration with several SLPs from around the world who also endorse our app and use it in their therapy sessions. Meaning, we have real backing from professionals. Would you be so kind and let us know where you found this false claims? We would love to know!
We are aware of certain exercises where the sound is too low and we are fixing that as we speak in addition to the computer-generated voices for bonus videos. With the new update we will no longer have the robotic voice that you are describing, but a real recording. How awesome is that? We think our users will enjoy the new and improved voices.
Our newest section on emotions uses several children who explain which emotions is being portrayed in a certain exercise. We also use both "emoji" and real children who represent these emotions. Every exercise has both examples, a real child on the picture and an emoji. We have gotten great feedback on this section particularly from parents with autistic children.
We are sorry to hear our app does not meet your expectations. We will miss you and wish you nothing but the best! Kindest regards.
