Jane Farrall reviews all of our apps. She describes both their intended limitations and their unique strengths: “[T]hese clever apps … get us to think outside the box in Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC). … [T]hey are clever apps that have a valuable place in the options available to us.” – Jane’s Blog:

Kate Ahern reviewed a handful of our Fat Cat apps on her blog. She found them fun and useful, as well as conversation extenders. In particular, she found Snappy Chat, Fast Twenty, and Chat Repair to be “nice back up tools, choices for those who are understood just fine when communicating with familiar listeners but need help with new listeners and those who maybe just need a hand when tired or ill.” - Kate Ahern in her blog on Teaching Learners with Multiple Needs
