SnapType helps students keep up with their peers in class even when their penmanship holds them back. Students can easily complete school worksheets with the help of an iPad or iPhone.
With SnapType, students can take a picture of their worksheets, or import worksheets from anywhere on their device. They can then use their iOS device keyboard to add text to these documents and print, email, or share their creations. It is the perfect solution for kids, and even adults, who struggle with their handwriting. Just read a few of our amazing testimonials:
"Dear Amberlynn, Thank you so much for creating this app. You have changed the way my 12 year old son with dyspraxia functions in school. He is more independent and I cannot thank you enough. Please continue to help kids like my son. You are changing lives. Thank you."
"Thank you for this ! I am going to talk to my sons teachers about this -you are a blessing ! I can honestly tell you that I have spent many hours crying inside an Hurting watching my son struggle to write pages of sentences and spelling words and other homework - to the point that I have stopped him and honestly wrote for him left handed to make it look more like a neater version of his because I could not take it anymore ! Thank you"
"I just wanted to personally thank you for creating it, as this is an app that I use nearly every day with my son to do his homework. You have created an app with a simple interface, but with an incredibly powerful impact. Thank you."
"It is wonderful and something so simple yet so so so important for little guys like mine who cannot write BUT is learning to type and has so much to say and SHOW."
"We trialed SnapType with an 8-year old who is receiving school-based occupational therapy due to visual motor and visual perceptual issues. The biggest complaint from teachers about handwriting for this student was related to illegible answers on worksheets. The student quickly learned to take images of the worksheets with her iPad, upload them to the device and type in her answers. In addition to making her writing legible and eliminating issues with visual perceptual skills, the child's interest in the task was greatly improved, as was her pride in her work."
"Thank you so much Amberlynn. What a wonderful idea and gift to those kids that struggle with dysgraphia. I have converted many a workbook page for my son. This is WONDERFUL!"
"Thank you, thank you, thank you. I'm a mother of twins. My son is autistic and my daughter has cerebral palsy. They are still only 2 and a half... but I'm sure they will both need and use this. The fact that you have also made it free and are paying for it out of pocket is just the sweetest thing ever. I read about this last night and cried tears of joy. You are amazing! And I'm going to be telling everyone who will listen about you, this story, and your app. Thank you again, I truly appreciate it!!”

Ratings and Reviews
This app has really helped my daughter (3rd grade). She can do her classwork and homework on it and email it to her teacher. No one including herself could read her writing so this is fantastic. She picked it up instantly, it is very intuitive and easy to use. The only thing that could make this better would be enabling it to read text to speech on the worksheets. That is probably wishful thinking though. You can have your ipad read the words you type by enabling it in your accessability options but being able to read (text to speech) the directions and word problems would be fantastic. Even so, I rate it 5 stars.
We had a follow up meeting yesterday to discuss how my 5th grader is doing with his iPad. He basically uses SnapType and Modmath. His teachers were super nervous about it in September, but they were so happy yesterday! They think it is helping him so much and it is all working really smoothly with their iPads—he just air drops assignments over. They said he is really responsible with it and it has given him so much confidence! He is only one in the district using SnapType. His teachers said it’s perfect for a kid like him (super smart, just hard time writing) and they want to do a faculty meeting about it to tell the other teachers how great it is!! Fantastic!!
Where has this been all my son’s life?
My son literally did a dance of joy the first time he tried it. Thank you for a “super-mega-wowzers” app. My son’s word, not mine. :).
