    I have voice loss issues and have tried other aac apps, which have been okay but slow because of no predictive text. This app is perfect for a literary individual if you don't want to use aac apps that are more picture based. The interface of this is relatively simple too, without having to go through multiple layers of menus and screens like some which again makes it faster to use. Both the predictive text and the appearance is very customisable which makes it a great experience to engage with

  • Great AAC solution, responsive team Jan 22, 2020

    By KateAACSLP
    I found this app to be a great solution for individuals who communicate primarily through typing. The interface is intuitive and offers some nice customizable options. It allows for preprogrammed messages for efficiency when necessary. The developers have been supportive and very responsive to questions.

    I would definitely recommend this to anyone who has communication difficulties. When I speak to new people they understand me straight away, shopkeepers are very helpful and go out of their way to be understanding.
  • Was amazing until now Aug 18, 2020

    So I love this app, it’s amazing and so helpful to me! I like the last version better though. It was simpler.

    Terrible, purchased this months ago and has a major bug making Acapela voice play way too fast. Spoke to them and they admitted there was a bug causing this and it was being fixed. Months later no fix and they me there is no time frame. Disgraceful when they charge £160 for it.

  • DOESN’T ALLOW USERS IN - PLEASE FIX PASSWORD ISSUE Jan 31, 2021

    By Mooseneuron
    Predictable is a fantastic app, and has become a really essential tool. Somehow, the current version doesn’t allow users in. No luck asking for a link to reset your password either. The app, as well as the website will tell you it has successfully sent an email, but nothing arrives. Why why why? Such an easy fix. Your paid users have to use the app in “Guest Mode.” Honestly, it’s almost cruel to have an app that’s so good that users have come to depend on it, and then somehow let a glitch lock them out. There are other reviews here that also seem to be struggling with password issues. Please fix this.

  • iPhone app is awful Jan 18, 2020

    By xohdis
    I liked the design of the app, so I bought it primarily for iPhone. The app is atrocious. Hasn’t been updated in years for two rounds of larger screen size. Stay away
  • great app but cannot hide edit button Jan 24, 2013

    By SWHDAT
    I sure do wish they would update with a function to hide the settings/edit button. I work with so many kids who would like to use this app, but in order to hide the settings/edit button someone has to go into guided access, circle the settings button to lock it out, then start guided access. This has to be done each time the app is reopened - this Does NOT facilitate independent communication! A user should be able to use the app outside of guided access with the settings button being able to be disabled elsewhere.

    I am unable to speak due to MND and I have been using predictable for the past year and half. I use predictable as my voice and my family have got really used to it. I use the whole time and have never had any problems.

  • nice prediction but no print option Oct 25, 2012

    By Jhuch
    I bought this app, for $160 mind you, to assist a student with cerebral palsy who has difficulty writing. The prediction feature is pretty nice. Doesn't predict all possible words through invented spelling of the user but does very well. I hoped that it would have a printing feature so that all text entered onto the screen could be printed and then turned in to a teacher. The Abilipad app is much less expensive, has print options, but does not do a very good job with prediciton. Please add a print option!!

  • Upsetting Aug 21, 2016

    By Kobetime7514
    One of the better text to speech apps, but still not fully satisfying as far as switch access. Discovered a shocking example of antisemitism in my version. Type "I hate" and look at the word prediction bar. Awful. Hope that developer has been fired.

  • What a huge and costly disappointment Mar 10, 2012

    By -dta
    Twitter integration is useless as it cannot be used in scan mode. Must have someone switch to Settings, change to direct mode, switch back to app, find msg in history then tweet. After entering credentials I get: "Whoa there! The request token for this page is invalid. It may have already been used, or expired because it is too old. Please go back to the site or application that sent you here and try again; it was probably just a mistake." Emailing a msg just causes a crash. No ability to copy msg to clipboard...

    It keeps crashing. Understand it is better supported on Apple. I use Android. I have PLS bulbar type which has rendered me unable to speak. Undependable on Android. Very frustrating. It is not cheap. Not able to use it consistently. Have to alternate with another text to speech application. If you would fix the bugs, I would rate it 5 stars. Update did not fix the crashing.

  • Crashes Repeatedly Nov 19, 2012

    By Mommyswami
    I had high hopes for this for my 11 year old daughter. Unfortunately after she would manage a few letters the app would crash. I contacted the developer, tried all of their suggestions including putting gloves on her with one finger cut out and still it would crash. It was so disappointing to her to work so hard to communicate only to see her efforts disappear. Not worth the huge price tag.
