I have had this app for years and used it frequently with my students. I now have to put in a user name and password which I never had to do in the past. To make matters worse they want subscription fees for the app now which has not changed much in the years that I have had it. This is disgraceful, especially since it is geared for kids with ASD!!!!!!

Social Express


This app is really good, however for 5.99 a month it is way too expensive since the content rarely changes.

Update to iOS 11

Can’t use app please update

Developer Response

Back in 2013 we removed our original app The social Express and placed a new app in the store, The Social Express II. People who purchased the original app, The Social Express were given a perpetual license, but when ios 11 came out the app stopped working. We have offered a generous discount for anyone who owned the app to purchase the Social Express II as we have not supported the social express since 2013. This cusomter is complaining about an entirely different app. Please remove this ASAP
