Customer Reviews

Good but could be great

As an SLP working with preschool through fifth grade students, I use this app on a daily basis. I love that I've been able to create many custom categories and have been able to share these with colleagues. There are a few things I would love to see in this app to make it really great. #1 ability to go back to a previous picture, sometimes my students tap the picture too quickly and there is NO way to go back. #2 ability to turn off verbal reinforcement in game mode, I have a few kids who repeat everything and it's hard to get them to stop repeating 'super' or 'you did it', plus it gets a bit annoying. #3 this app seems to freeze quite a bit, often we will need to tap an icon 8-10 times before we can select the category. #4 a way to keep data on items named or identified correctly. That's my wish list for this app!

Initially loved it, but now not so much!

Loved the idea that I could make flash cards and share them with my co worker and vice versa. Initially it worked great but now when we try to share, it just puts us back to the home screen. Have tried to contact support several times with no response. It's too bad because it was such a great idea and time saver, not to mention quality product. Hope they figure it out soon!

After lots of frustration I finally figured out that you can't title your categories with symbols or the program won't share via e-mail or Dropbox. After revising the category names it was easy to share my customized flashcards and I'm very pleased with the app!

Love it, but annoyed with support

I love this app. The kids can't move on to the next card until the recording is done saying the word, big deal for me as my kids would just tap through. I like how things are categorized. If you want basic animals, you can find them in the first words section. And then you can expand with dog and cat breeds. The ONLY problem I have with this app is that I cannot get the microphone to work with it to make customized cards. The app has permission in my privacy settings, so I'm stumped. I contacted their help email and have not heard back and it's been about a week.
