How to re-download SpeakColors onto another iPad

Recently, a customer asked how they could open the the full version of SpeakColors on a second iPad without having to re-purchase the app. Other apps had transferred over from one iPad to another, but not SpeakColors. Here are some steps to help troubleshoot and resolve the issue of re-downloading SpeakColors onto a second iPad.

First, verify the Apple ID used on one iPad matches the Apple ID used on the second iPad:
1. Tap Settings > iTunes & App Store
2. Apple ID’s should match

Next, check the iOS version on the second iPad.  Speak Colors requires a minimum of iOS 9.3.  To check which version of iOS you have:
1. Tap Settings > About
2. See “Version”.

If your version is less than 9.3, you can try upgrading.  To upgrade:
1. Make sure you have a working Internet connection.
2. Tap Settings > Software Update
3. If there is an update available, there should be a button to download and install.

If your Apple ID’s match and you are on atleast iOS 9.3, then you should be able to re-download the app onto your second iPad. There are two versions of the full SpeakColors, and they have different steps for re-downloading.

Speech Cards Updated for 64-bit and iOS 10

It’s been a while since we last updated Speech Cards. Recently you may have received this warning message when starting the app:

iOS Compatibility Alert

The above warning message appears for 32-bit apps. Apple introduced the warning message with iOS 10.1 to push developers to update theirs apps for 64-bit. All of Apple’s iOS devices now use 64-bit chips.

Today, I am happy to announce the release of Speech Cards Version 1.4.0. This important release updates the app for 64-bit architecture and is optimized for iOS 10. You will no longer receive the warning message above.

What’s next for Speech Cards?

Speech Cards was created in 2012 and was one of my first apps. It is programmed in Objective-C, uses a SQLite database, and the user interface is all done 100% programmatically (including auto layout). The iOS world has changed a lot since then and I’ve learned a lot too!

Work has begun to re-write Speech Cards with the goal of making it easier and faster to add new features. The app will be re-written in Swift, a modern programming language, which is a joy to use. Storyboard, the technology to visually implement user interfaces in iOS, has significantly matured and really helps reduce development time. The user interface will be re-implemented in Storyboard. With an easier and faster update process, I hope to implement more of the great ideas sent to us by our users.

Thank you for reading.

SpeakColors Review by iAutism

iAutism

iAutism posted a great review (in Spanish) of SpeakColors in December, 2013. An English version of the review is now available. The review covers both SpeakColorsHD and SpeakColors Español. Thank you iAutism for taking the time to review both apps!

“SpeakColors is much more than an app to learn colors, and provides exercises to learn diverse vocabulary, to work receptive and expressive language, and to practice various basic structures of sentences.”

Below are links to the full review in English and Spanish:

Speech Cards 1.3.0 – New Options for Group Sessions

Speech Cards is great for group speech therapy sessions. Speech Cards supports groups of all sizes and keeps scores for each student. Changing from one student to another is quick and easy. On the iPad version, only two taps are required to change students. However, sometimes you forget to change students and accidentally score the wrong student. We have two exciting new features in Speech Cards version 1.3.0 to help you in your group sessions:

  1. Option to automatically advance to the next student in the list. When swiping or changing to a new card, the app will select the next student. This option is disabled by default.
  2. Option to announce the name of the next student. This option serves as an auditory cue for when it is another student’s turn. To hear the name of the student, you will need to use the microphone on the screen for editing the name of the student. This option is enabled by default.

Both of these new options are accesible from the Options screen.

Summary of What’s New in Version 1.3.0

  • Option to automatically advance to the next student.
  • Record the name of the student.
  • Option to announce the next student.
  • Fixed issue with voice recording on iPad with AirPlay Mirroring.
  • Removed “(null)” from the PDF of a Detailed Session Report with no notes.
  • Fixed import issue.

Availability

Speech Cards version 1.3.0 is available for the iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch on the App Store:

Conclusion

We think the new options will greatly improve the flow of your group sessions and reduce scoring mistakes. The new options for group sessions were designed with this rule in mind: a new card equals somebody else’s turn. Not everyone uses the same rules. The options can be disabled if they do not suit your needs. Thank you Special Apps, Special Kids for suggesting the option to automatically advance to the next student! We appreciate suggestions from our users. We would love to hear your feedback on this update, particularly on how you use Speech Cards with groups. Reviews on the App Store are greatly appreciated. Please leave a comment or contact us if you have any questions.
