Thanks, cmf-slp for you confirmation on what I suspected was going on at Smarty Ears. But the company is not alone in popping our pricey apps that are unimaginative.
I have one other gripe about the way many of Smarty Ears language apps are represented in their product descriptions. The description states,"______(name of the app) is based on research around ______(specific language target of the app)…Studies have found…." and then she quotes specific studies regarding language. This is quite a clever marketing trick to make the the Smarty Ears app appear more appealing because it is "evidenced based." Once again, buyer beware.
