App Review: Speecharoo Funny Directions

The following is an app review. The views are my own. I received this app from the developer in return expressing my opinions.  Links (in dark red) are provided for your convenience. Want to see larger pictures? Just click on one and scroll through!
Speecharoo Funny Directions is an app that will have your students laughing as they follow directions.

Appreciated Features:
  This app had all of my kids who used it laughing. I used it with children with autism and intellectually disabled students. Every one of them laughed at the antics of the objects in the directions.

 Four different scenes with 3 levels for each scene.
Slow, clear directions. My students weren't rushed to find the object.

 After 3 failed attempts, the target object wiggles as a cue. 

 Work on common daily vocabulary in 4 different settings. (You can also see an example of all 3 levels in the pictures below. Click on a picture to see a larger view.)



  Ability to turn off the voice in order to target following written directions.
 Gives you the results after each 10 attempts. Also, the student pops balloons  that come out of the kangaroo's pouch after each set.
What I would like to see:
✋ The ability to save data, and a continuation of data for the entire session, not just for each set.

✋I didn't use the app for following written directions, but I do have a concern about the font and the size of the font that was used. This is not a deal-breaker for me, though. 

Additional Comments:
My kids absolutely loved this app! Not only did they love it, but I did as well. As previously mentioned, they laughed at the animations following their correct response. 

The progression between each level of difficulty was very appropriate.

The app was developed by 2 SLPs who definitely knew what they were doing!

 I was very surprised when I saw the price. It's very affordable...I expected it to be quite a bit more expensive!

Funny Directions by Speecharoo Apps  is available for purchase for $2.99. To view in iTunes, click here.
