{Review} Expressive App and a Giveaway!

"Expressive" by Smarty Ears is an awesome app that allows both children and adults to increase their communication skills.

As usual, the video tutorial for this app is extremely helpful.  It takes less than 4 minutes, and shows all of the various functions that the app has to offer.

This app includes 10 different preset categories that each have many words, phrases, and sentences prerecorded, including:

- basics,









and time.

The app also allows the user to customize it by adding pictures from the smarty symbols library or their own photo library.

Here is an example of two sentence strips that I created.  Once you've completed the phrase or sentence, clicking in the large white box prompts the app to say the sentence.

"Do you want chili?"

"She is busy."

What I love about this app:
- It has a variety of preloaded pictures and prerecorded words/phrases/sentences.
- It allows the user the ability to add their own images to customize the app.
- The categories are color coded to increase ease of use.

You can learn more about this awesome app HERE or you can find it for $25.99 on iTunes!

But wait!  There's more!  Smarty Ears has given me a code to give away a free copy of this app!  Enter below for a chance to win!
