REVIEW WRITING WITH CLEAR SPEECH
Pupils use the child-friendly keyboard to type into the simple word processor, and a range of speech options encourage them to review what they have written. This helps them to find and correct errors for themselves, enabling them to become more independent writers.
DEVELOP VOCABULARY AND SPELLING WITH WORD PREDICTION
The intelligent word predictor suggests words that fit the context of pupils’ writing. The predictor can be customised according to reading level and number of words, helping pupils to use good vocabulary and create flowing text with accurate spelling. Learners can listen to words in both the predictor and the spell checker before using them, helping them to find the word they want.
BUILD WRITING CONFIDENCE WITH WORD BANKS
Word Banks provide tabbed vocabulary support for any subject or topic - just tap a word to add it to the document. Make your own Word Banks in a flash (you can even paste in a block of text from anywhere and have it created automatically, and use the free, ready-made Word Banks on our LearningGrids site, accessible from within the app!
CHECK WORDS BEFORE THEY ARE USED
Pupils can even listen to words before they write them, helping them to find the word they want and achieve writing success. Any word in the predictor or Word Bank can be heard before it is used by using our unique Sound Shift tool.
WRITING TO BE PROUD OF
The child-friendly Sassoon font included in the app makes Clicker Docs documents look great on-screen and on paper. Print your work to any Airprint-compatible printer, or share it via email, AirDrop, Dropbox, Google Drive, OneDrive or WebDAV. Whatever your pupils’ current level, watch their confidence grow and their motivation soar as they experience writing success!
ACCESSIBLE FOR ALL
To make access easier for those with physical challenges, the unique SuperKeys option groups the letter keys into clusters, creating just six large areas to target. Just tap the cluster containing the letter you want, and then tap the letter in the enlarged cluster. The predictor/ spellchecker has four size options too, to make words easy to select.

Ratings and Reviews
Crick has done it again!
I’ve been a fan of Clicker for a long time, so I was really excited to hear that Crick had brought out some apps. I love Clicker Docs – you’ve got speech feedback, word prediction and work bank support, which all encourage my pupils to take ownership of their own writing. As a Clicker 6 user, I’m also a frequent visitor to Crick’s free resources site LearningGrids, so it’s great to see that they are making these for the apps too. All in all, everything I’d expect from a Crick product – keep up the good work!
A must-have for young writers
Great app – so many ticks! My pupils find it so motivating to have their writing read back to them, and the predictor is giving some of my more reluctant writers the confidence to use a much wider vocabulary than I’m used to seeing from them. The lower-case keyboard is a nice touch too. I particularly love that you can create your own content as well – for me, it’s the direction education apps should be heading in now. Fingers crossed for more apps from Crick!
Crick Software does it again.
Clicker 6 is brilliant and these apps for iPad are great. I go into lots of schools who are buying iPads and need good word processing software on them for the kids. Clicker Documents gives on screen keyboards and on-screen grids of words to support writing. The user can listen to the words before choosing which one to use.
Up to six family members will be able to use this app with Family Sharing enabled.
