Very effective, easy to use, and customizable. Does not contain pictures, only text. This makes it unusable for those who can't read. However, I prefer this app over the ones with pictures. As an adult who can read, the others typically seem geared towards children, and have phrases/ words that center on children's needs. I appreciate that I can add my own words, and that it has complete phrases in addition to the words. This is my go to app for the times when I am nonverbal. It's also free!

I never know when I may be non-verbal. Gone are the days when I would sift through tapes and cassettes for the right message, scrubbing through to get my point across. And while I might see such a thing through a sickly layer of nostalgia, the reality of being non-verbal is not nearly so forgiving. This app helps get the point across when I struggle with words. Saving phrases for later and sorting words to queue up when further explanation is necessary. Finding the voice engine and settings is crucial for intelligibility in stressful situations. I would recommend this to a friend in need.

This app is unique and well worth purchase to get backup and restore option. Great app especially for tablet. Larger keyboard makes composing easy. Backup option makes it easy to transfer changes between devices with email and restore function. I have app on phone and tablet. I noticed speech loss when using 4.2 Bluetooth devices. Thanks to email exchange with developer, we found that using Bluetooth 5 speakers stopped loss and all words and phrases are spoken. Thanks Ton
