The app is very good and easy to use, even in its limited free version. It's a great primarily text based aac, but i think two things should be changed. - Add a dark mode option to free users. I would say dark gray white text is a good alternative to the default button colors and dark mode for settings should be available too. - For paid users, even more custom colors for the personalized palette would be VERY appreciated. I want to make a purple layout. Hex code entering or smth.

Seems like a very good app from my little usage of it so far. My main problem with it is that I am very photosensitive and the dark mode not being accessible for free really hurts. I was trying to test the app out but it being so bright made my migraine I've been fighting all day return! Please consider this is very common in autistic people who need this kind of app. Would be very nice if you could add this feature, it's a pretty basic accessibility option that shouldn't be paywalled.

Really great customization options. Full version is absolutely worth it for the color coding and other extra features. My main gripe is how difficult it is to organize the different buttons, I'm dying for a simple drag and drop. Would be nice if the colors showed up in the reorder menu, at least. Thanks for a great app!
