Photo Buttons

By Software Smoothie

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.


Photo Buttons is a simple, bubble-popping style cause and effect app that parents can customize with personal photographs and sound. While designed for young children to explore with their parents, Photo Buttons can also be used by anyone who would benefit from word-object association, cause and effect, and visual discrimination practice.

Touch anywhere on the screen to create a button. Interact with the buttons by tapping them to reveal images and sounds. Tap the buttons again to “pop” them. Shake the device to hear a rattle sound and watch all of the buttons disappear at once.

Use sample buttons depicting everyday photographs and sounds, or create your own buttons using personal photographs and sound.

Photo Buttons is newly updated with a simple user interface designed to keep young children inside the app, while providing adults easy access to app settings. To enter app settings and create new buttons, simply press and hold the settings icon for 2 seconds. Especially designed for young children, this app contains no ads, in-app purchases or external links. Images are stored on your device. No personal information is collected or shared.

Customer Reviews

An awesome and creative teaching tool

Photo Buttons by Software Smoothie is an excellent introduction to using the iPad. It gives you a choice of a background to set, then just tap the screen to make the button appear, tap again to flip over the button to hear the recording and see the picture, finally tap to pop! Very nice photos and sound recording in this app. The settings allow for custom buttons where you can add a photograph for a button with a personalized recording. Use the camera from your iPad or choose photos from your photo library. I found a fun way to use this app....take pictures of students and give all students a chance to play which give them an opportunity to learn peer names. Uncheck buttons you don't want to use and display specific categories of pictures; toys, food, animals, etc. This is a simple app with lots of application with two language choices too (English and Nederlands) I definitely recommend it.

Great tool for special needs

This app is a home run. It creates a great learning experience for children with special needs. My family appreciates the attention to detail that is immediately evident after launching the app. Thank you!

Must have app!

This is a great app. Love it. My 13 month old has been playing it for months and he loves it. I love how you can personalize it. Thanks for another great app!
