Great therapy tool!
As a speech pathologist, I'm always looking for new and improved apps to use with my students. This app has so many potential uses. I have been using it to develop expressive output by downloading meaningful pictures that the student can describe. As they get better with that we move on to combining sentences to describe a meaningful picture scene. You can then proceed to describing multiple pictures to tell a story. It's fun for the kids, especially when you use photos they relate to (like themselves)! You can also use it for social skills to talk about emotions. The therapist can record a social story related to a picture of the actual student and the child can listen to and talk about it in a meaningful context. Another great activity is taking a picture of the student and having them record how they are feeling and how their facial expression relays that feeling. This gives students with social skills deficits practice in matching non-verbal cues with verbal output. I find the kids love recording and listening to their own voices. It makes therapy dynamic and fun while also supporting the needs of my students. I, too, am just scratching the surface with this great app! There are so many possibilities. Thanks for another great app!

Great app!
This app is quite user-friendly. It provides a great way for kids to choose their favorite photos, record something about them and also share them via email. An excellent tutorial page is provided. One can do multiple recordings about the same photo and can show sequences of events, etc. Very reasonably priced also!

Unbelievable flexibility
Amazing app. It is so flexible, I don't feel like I have even scratched the surface with it's capability. I have been able to create sequencing exercises, practice social stories, picture directions and practice conversations so far. And since I am able to use my own photographs, my daughter is really invested in the play. Wow.
