Ratings and Reviews

Very pleased


We are very pleased with the update. We use the regular reading level mostly; but now it is nice to have access to the higher level, too. Also, both the download and the interaction features are easier in this update.

We have been longtime News-2-You (N2Y) print subscribers and are grateful that N2Y and Assistiveware (the app developer) have provided a way for our son to read the issues independently.

Awesome app

Teacher loves, students love

I love this app for my students with autism! They are fully engaged and can do almost 100% of it on their own...creating independence. My only complaint is that during the crossword portion, it would be nice if cursor would move to the next box automatically. My students sometimes get frustrated during this portion. I hope you can fix this issue.

Love love love


This is such a great app! The newsletter/worksheets has always been an amazing resource but this app brings it to another level! My students absolutely LOVE this app--from the newsletter that "reads" to them, to the moveable picts to complete patterns or puzzles to accessing the keyboard to write BRAVO.
