Best Free AAC App You'll Find Anywhere!

This app comes with preloaded pictures, boards and sayings that are fairly generic and not PCS, however you can edit, link, record, and it's completely customizable. You can put a picture you take with your camera as a button, and record your voice to say what you want when it's pushed, and link that button to a separate page such as "I want" > "movies"> "Tangled." My son prefers this app over TouchChat currently because the borders are wider between buttons which makes them easier to see. Play with this first before you decide on paying for TouchChat, Alexicomm or LAMP! I've done 3 out of 4 and SoundingBoard is still top pick.

Can't save anything

This app is supposed to allow you to create your own boards, but they never save. Even edits to the existing boards don't ever save. Not sure if this is an iOS 10 issue or something but the app is fairly useless without this feature. Shame, was recommended by our speech pathologist.

Not compatible for IPhone 6s Plus

Love this app but I can't record over the informative icons because it's not compatible with IPhone 6s Plus or the IPad Air
