Arbys123's Review of Assistive ExpressReviewed on 9/6/19 2:28 PM
Assistive Express v3.4 does work fine with iPad 2 running iOS v6.1.3. To make it work, uninstall current version. Then in AppStore, select 'purchased' apps and find Assistive Express again. Click cloud icon to download the program. Let download finish completely, it is a long download. Make sure the iPad does not turn off or go to sleep during the download. After completion, the app will run fine. You will be first greeted with a dark 'how to' screen and then press 'start' to begin program. Your first install/update did not complete properly which gave you the problem. Hope this helps. The new version is quite good and has a cleaner interface than the older version. Good luck!

The support website is busted and will not accept feedback. Does anyone know if it is possible to use this app during a phone call? I tried and it did not work. My guess is that it is because Apple does not allow 3rd party apps to work on top of their built in apps. Are there any apps that might be able to do this? I would LOVE to see this in an update! Thanks,

This is way too limited for my needs

Great app, worked great. Then 2 days after purchase stopped working with iPhone 3GS internal speaker. I found that if I had the ringer switch on the side of the phone in the off (don't ring) position it muted the app for the internal speaker. Now I know to have the ringer on if I want to use the app. I like this app better than any of the less expensive apps. But it needs a bigger starting vocabulary. Fortunately it learns new words. Recently purchased ipad2, and this app works very well on it. I have ALS and cannot speak. This app on the ipad2 is allowing me to continue to communicate.

My younger brother with autism has been using this app for years. It has served him well, but we prefer the layout that was used in previous versions of this app. The very large speakerphone button (that was more than twice the size of the other buttons) definitely made it easier for him to use this app. The old layout was already very clean--I do not understand why it had to be changed. Also, it is nearly impossible to contact the makers of this app. There's no contact email to be found. Why is communication so difficult?

The only things I would add to it is a voice pitch and the options for more voices. With other apps out there they offer other voices than just the ones that are built in even though you have to pay for them but they are not expensive either. Other than that it's great! I also like the fact that you can use it without the Internet.

I bought this for my non-verbal son with autism. It is wonderful. It memorized the words he uses the most ... Even his High school name. It even said the correct pronunciation for his high school. Pretty amazing since the name of the school is Vandegrift :) Only has three choices for voices, but they are all pretty appealing. If your child has been using some ancient assistive communication device and you don't want to use PECS, get this. Worth every penny.

I bought this app a few years ago. Everything worked great until just recently it stopped working. I had difficulty installing it on my new iPad. Luckily, I have another app on my iPad to help me communicate. But, I paid money for my Assistive Express, It's been a headache getting this installed.

I love this app because my son has the ability to communicate to anyone around him with the help of the "word prediction" feature. As a parent, I like it because I can store his favorite phrases and I can also access the most recent messages. The voices are not annoying or to robotic. I would recommend the app for non verbal autistic children that have basic reading comprehension skills.

When can kids like me get a male teen voice? None of my friends sound like this. This is important for me. Thanks!
