Hi Cath,

I gathered some info:

In general - the iphone is great for communication apps if you want something portable. If you are worried about the small screen or have any fine motor issues, the small icons and screen can make it hard to navigate the features.

You can have an app open on an ipad, iphone, or itouch at the same time! (e.g. the expensive app, Proloquo2go, can be used on both multiple ipads simultaneously - You have up to 3 devices that you can share this purchased application on.)

Other recommendations for idevices:
Proloquo2go - great app, but kind of "kiddy" in its features - but can easily personalize
Verbally - another great app. Easier access to phrases, doesn't use pictures symbols.

So here is how to get Proloquo2go from the ipad to the itouch, iphone, etc....

1. Go to the App Store on the device that you want to install the app

2. On the bottom of the app store, there are some options. Select the "purchased" icon

3. You can scroll through all apps downloaded so far and just click the cloud button by the app to put it on the new device, it will automatically start downloading.

Subject: [Athen] AAC app for iphone

Hi all -
Has anyone used any aug comm apps on the iphone?
Proloquo2Go, My Talk Tools Mobile, and touchChat seem to be robust options but would love some feedback if anyone has seen them in action. Looking to support a communications major who has had a stroke.
