Couldnt agree more with the need for SLPs to create more imaginative and appealing apps. As a profession we are creative and dynamic but these skills are only just beginning to be reflected in SLP apps. Speaking from experience, developing an SLP app is an exciting and rewarding (if not time consuming and!!)experience.
Our app (Splingo's Language Universe)targets language understanding and listening skills. Importantly it makes use of the unique dynamic functions of the Ipad and Iphone – drag and drop, aminations, audio etc that appeal to childrens natual facsination with technology.
Go for it SLPs!!
