I have used this app for years and LOVED it until recently. I just got a new iPad and it is crashing every time I try to input a student’s goals.
This game is ok for kindergarten, but proved very dull for my 1st-5th grade clients. All of the arcade games are exactly the same, touch one object and get a target word/phrase. For example, on balloon pop you would think they get to try to pop as many balloons as they can,etc. but all they do is pop one balloon each turn and get a target...same for hidden treasure...you would think that they would get to "hunt" for the treasure, etc. but the gems are in plain sight and all they do is touch one and it gives a target, there is no challenge or fun in it. Advantages to the game I guess are that you can record and replay responses. It's an ok app if you just want to drill and have the iPad collect the data, but not if you are looking for a "fun" or motivating game. In my opinion it is not worth the price. My kiddos would rather use drill cards and play a board game.
I purchased the full app after downloading the trial. Here is what I like about it: ability to input goals for each student, scoring options, graph for visual results, good flash cards, can switch between games without ending the session
Here is what I don't like: you have to press the save button after you record if you want to go back and listen to your students recording, doesn't have the option to target different sounds at the same time during a game(you can switch goals during the session), the games all are the same(touch then say a word).
What I would like to see changed: simpler recording tools, ability to choose goals for phonological processes, more interesting and varied game play options.
All in all I will still use it since I paid for it but it is definitely not a stand alone therapy tool.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
