This engaging educational App for iPhone®, iPad®, or iPod touch® includes all 60 clever photo flash cards from the Webber® Photo Cards What Are They Thinking? card deck by Super Duper® Publications. Use the App to improve your students' inferencing, reasoning, and conversational skills. All the people and animals in these fun photos have thought bubbles above their heads. Touch the screen to hear all of the thoughts or touch one thought bubble to hear just that character's thought. Hit the refresh button to hear a new thought for each bubble.
This App is simple to use — each student looks at an illustration and answers the question, "What are they thinking?" The student then gives a verbal response. After each answer, tap the green (correct) or red (incorrect) button to score the student's verbal response. Move to the next card by sliding the card currently on the display screen to the side, and the next image appears. To move to the next player, tap the bar at the top of the screen and select a name. You can also advance cards and players automatically by selecting the Auto-Advance option in the Settings menu. You can leave a game by selecting End from the menu. To return to the game, select Resume from the main menu. When you finish, view the results in a graph, and print or email your data.

Ratings and Reviews
Should be free
outdated and only a few usable pictures, it would've been nice to see some sample pictures beforehand, I would not have purchased. I bought to use in a social skills class...refund?
Do not like it
I really wish there was a sample before purchase. The photos do not give enough information to result in the thoughts the people are Forming. There is no chance of success . If the photos were more detailed it would be helpful, or not giving such crazy thoughts.. For example, two babies, one holding ears. The thought is... He cannot play drums very well. No photo of drums, no clue that drums are making notice,... So you tell me how a child who has difficulty with this issue could possibly have success with this program? I have other super duper products so I do like this company, I just feel they missed the mark on this one and should redo it and offer an updated version.
would be more useful if more concrete
The recorded thoughts are often off-the-wall and do not make sense contextually. They are "entertaining" for someone with social skills but for those children working on inferencing skills and reading body language, the recorded "answers" just don't make sense. The app is therefore only sometimes usable (the pictures) and almost never with the recorded responses. They are not what I go over with the students and if they are not predictable to me, they would not be predictable to students. And this has proven to be the case.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
