I'm back today with an app review for Custom Boards from Smarty Ears! Jonathan at Smarty Ears provided me with the app for free, but the opinions expressed here are all mine. No other compensation was provided.
When you first open the Custom Boards App, you see this page: You can choose whether you want to create a new project, open a saved project, or seek help from the support page.
Under the "New" tab, you can choose between 6 different kinds of activities, including: Activities & Games, Devices & Switches, Signs & Labels, Grids & Boards, Schedules & Calendars, and Worksheets. When you click the "New" tab, it looks like this:
I thought I'd highlight my favorite part of the app for you: When you choose an activity template, you can click to add an image. You can choose an image from the Custom Board app, upload an image from Google, or upload your own pictures from your Ipad photo library. Here is the homescreen when you click to add a picture:
Here is a picture of a first/then board I made for one of my students in about 2 minutes! Once you create a document, you can save or share it as a pdf.
Overall, I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this app! There are so many things to do, and so many ways to use it! I'm sure that without trying too hard, I could find some way to use this app for each and every kiddo on my caseload. Custom Boards sells in iTunes for 39.99, and in my opinion, it is very much worth the cost!
Have any of you used Custom Boards yet? If so, what do you think?
