THE SCIENCE BEHIND THE APP (PEER VIDEO MODELING)
Video modeling is an effective and scientifically proven method for picking up new skills and behaviors. When children observe peers on video, their mirror neurons fire up. Video modelling is scientifically proven to be highly effective when it comes to speech development, as confirmed by the University of California, Los Angeles study published by American Speech-Language-Hearing Association.
Take advantage of over 55 practices and 300+ videos. We will be adding new practices, including voice-controlled exercises, as well as videos, mini-games and other app content weekly.

”I'm a speech language pathologist and this gets my kids making sounds MUCH more easily than a picture! Works well with some of my autistic clients also. They love taking pictures with the goggles, etc on their face and love the reinforcers that pop up! Great job!”
“It's such a simple concept, yet my child absolutely loves it. He loves imitating the other children which surprises me with his developmental delay. Very cool app. It's worth the purchase.”

Why on earth are you charging $9.99 per month for an app like this?!
I was disappointed to see that you have switched to a subscription model. Most schools and state run facilities cannot purchase IAPs or subscriptions due to strict purchasing rules but would be able to pay to purchase an app up front. So if you only offer a subscription based option you will be severely limiting the user base for the new app. Also, how on earth did you come up with the pricing for your new app? $9.99 per month = $119.88 per year. I find it unbelievable that you found any SLPs or parents who said they would be willing to pay that much. If they used your app for two years it would cost as much as many robust AAC apps. In a comment in a post in a SLP Facebook group you indicated that you have plans to release a full paid version of this new app. I hope that you rethink your pricing strategy and offer an app that is affordable and that I can recommend to parents and fellow SLPs. In the meantime, please remove OMazing Kids from the wording in your app description. I would never recommend this new app with the current pricing.
Update: This app developer is luring folks in with the promise of a free short trial and then charging a $9.99 per month subscription fee. They are also misusing the names of several SLP blogs including my own to promote that new app. On their website they include quotes from reviews for the original app and number of users from that app and are trying to pass them off as being related to this new app. It took a social media blitz to get them to remove the OMazing Kids name from the description for Speech Blubs on the App Store but I just saw they are still using my name on their website and linking to a blog post about the first app. I have updated that blog post with a warning to hopefully force them to quit using the OMazing Kids name on their website, any social media or any app stores (Apple, Google Play, Amazon or any others that might appear in the future). They have seriously messed with the wrong speechie…. I am very active and vocal on social media, am in almost every SLP Facebook group that they might try to lure SLPs in and am definitely not afraid to call them out.
Update #2: The app developer finally removed OMazing Kids name from their website but still are misusing names of other SLP blogs in the app description. I have been in contact with all of these SLPs and they have repeatedly requested that this app developer remove them. Just saw this new update which would have been a good opportunity for the app developer to honor their requests. But they did not.
