Proloquo2Go, the groundbreaking Alternative & Augmentative Communication (AAC) program for Apple's iPhone and iPod touch is now available at the iTunes App store.
Developed jointly by AssistiveWare and Sennott Consulting, the program is full featured but together with an iPod Touch/iPhone the costs are only a fraction of what is charged for similar palmtop-based programs.
David Niemeijer, AsisstiveWare's CEO said, "When we set out to design Proloquo2Go we knew we wanted to provide the kind of power typically only found in desktop applications. The iPhone has allowed us to do just that, develop a full-featured, fully customizable communication solution that fits right in your pocket."
I really think that the low price and fantastic features, plus the "cool factor" of the iPhone/iPod Touch will mean this app has the potential change the lives of some AAC users - especially young people for whom the "cool factor" may mean that they're more willing to use their device in public. If you or somebody you're close to becomes a Proloquo2Go user, please let ATMac know how you go - we'll be listening closely!
Proloquo2Go is available on the App Store for an introductory price of US$149.99/€109.99/£84.99. After a few weeks the price will be US$199.99/€149.99/£114.99. Prices in other countries will be comparable - go to Proloquo2Go at the iTunes App Store to see the price for your location. Bundles with speakers and cases are available in some countries - details are available on the Proloquo2Go Bundle Details page.
