Say Hi! AAC | 5,000+ Global Downloads and V1.1 Release with New FeaturesApril 30, 2012 by Bill Strong
Say Hi! AAC is a first-of-its-kind iPad communication and navigation app designed and built by theGSF that allows those with limited movement and/or dexterity to use the iPad to communicate without ever having to actually touch the iPad touchscreen. No really, it does! Check out this short YouTube video to see exactly how our app makes this possible.
We released the original version -- v1.0 -- of Say Hi! AAC in late-February 2012 and since then over 5,000 people around the world have downloaded the free app. That's right! Over five-thousand-people! 5,000 PEOPLE! We've been blown away at the broad use of the app and we are over-the-moon that more than 5,000 people around the world can now communicate because of our Say Hi! AAC iPad app. That is simply awesome! We've also been humbled by the number of emails from other disease and disorder communities -- ALS/Lou Gehrig's, autism, severe stroke -- telling us how they are using Say Hi! AAC and finding it effective for their different needs. We built Say Hi! AAC specifically for those with severe limited movement, but we think it's great that it's application is useful well beyond SMA. Keep the stories coming... and we will continue improving Say Hi! AAC!
Speaking of improvments, we are really excited to announce the release of v1.1 of Say Hi! AAC. We added a few new features based on continued testing and feedback.
