If you haven’t discovered Yapp Guru yet, prepare for an “adventure.” This fairly new site is going to be one of your favorite places to go for all things SLP app related. One of the absolute most cool things about it, is it is owned and run by SLPs who are in the field and on the front lines, just like you and me. This is a fantastic site! Don’t believe me?

Adventures in PB codes

Whew! I almost forgot. Here it is the day of the give-away and you’ve all been waiting with bated breath… You have, right?

Well now that work is done, homework is done (have I told you lately how much homework 6th grade has? Don’t worry – I won’t do it…If you have a 6th grader you’re too busy to read it…if you’ve gone beyond 6th grade you’ll be too busy commiserating to read further…and if you’re not there yet…well, I don’t want to scare you!)…Anyway… I digress. Now that all is said and done, I’ve had the opportunity to read your posts.

There are some fabulous posts…You all don’t need these codes. What a great job!

Thank you for participating in the game. I found some great ideas to use…and I appreciate them. As you can tell…there were 14 comments (well, 15 really – but one was a pingback and doesn’t count)… So, I used the Random Number generator app and chose two numbers. In the interest of fair play (and because I’m tired of people telling me I play favorites…no not here…elsewhere. You guys would never accuse me of that, right?) I’m including the screen shot of the RNG here.

As you can see…Comment 7 and Comment 12 were the winners. If we go from top to bottom, it looks as though Robyn Romano and Kimberly H. are the winners. Stay tuned for an email from me with the codes. Of course, if you already have the codes you will want to give these away as a gift – or let me know here, I’ll be happy to give them to one of the ones who didn’t win.

Also, be sure to send an email to Kyle at Mobile Education Store ( a great big thank you for the codes. Without him, we wouldn’t have the codes to give away. For those of you who have the app already – or who decide you really can’t live without it and decide to buy it since you didn’t win the code…be sure to write a review on iTunes and tell your friends about it…and spread the word.

Also…Be sure to look here for a review on Mobile Education’s newest app TenseBuilder here in the next couple of weeks. Who knows, maybe we’ll get lucky and have another give away…I’ll have to see if I can think of a good way to do it.

Until then…Adventure on!


Adventures in … Audio?

Have you ever been working with the iPad and your articulation app had the wrong word to go with the picture? Or what about the time we discussed on twitter whether the audio on a word sample for an app had the schwa at the end of the sound… and all you can think about is how lame that is? How you could do it better? … too.

Ice Cream Monsters app Review and Contest

Who doesn’t like ice cream, rockets, and monsters? Put those three items into an interactive story book app and you have a guaranteed winner! What’s even nicer is that app creator and author, Erik Raj (who also happens to be an awesomely creative SLP), has offered to give not one – but two codes for this new app for me to give away to a lucky reader. I’ll get to the contest in just a minute…right now, let me review the app for you.
