Ratings and Reviews
Good easy to use app - needs more editing capability
Voice4U was easy to navigate and edit. The app includes some ok pictures -- although I bought it for the framework and deleted most. I have another (high end) communication device and wanted something for backup. I easily imported the picture icons we currently use and photos and added recorded voice. I also easily deleted unwanted icons.
I gave this a 3/5 I was dissapointed with the inability to edit category headings or add my own categories.
Category edit feature would greatly improve the app.
