Nominate your favorite Smarty app blog

Nominate your favorite Smarty app blog

 

Howdy everyone! As I present on topics such as the use of iPad and apps for promoting speech and language services, I always emphasize the importance of reading app reviews and watching app video tutorials before making a choice on an app purchase. While we love what we do, and we work hard to try to spread the word about the apps we create, we rely on bloggers to inform you guys about their thoughts and opinions about our apps. We all agree that the five screenshots and the short description on iTunes most times cannot tell us much about an app.

Smarty Ears is very fortunate to count on various bloggers to review, and write their thoughts on our apps. We love our Smarty bloggers! They do it all free of charge for your benefit! It like a “read before you buy” kinda of service that benefits the entire community of parents and professionals. So in that spirit, we wanted to take the time to thank our Smarty bloggers and also start a campaign called “Nominate your favorite Smarty blogger“.

Here is how it will work:

If you follow a blog who reviews and evaluates apps and love what they write about, have learned about an app that your purchased in the past or know of a blogger you would LOVE to hear their opinion about our apps let us know. Fill out the form below and let us know your thoughts, we will compile a list of comments and share with our blogger friends so they know their work is being appreciated by everyone.  The blogger that receives the most votes will receive the a Smarty Ears t-shirt as our appreciation gift. Voting will end on August 7th, 2013.

Here at Smarty Ears we value our “blog friends” and we can only thank them for their support and feedback on one or many of our apps. I know that they spend a considerable amount of time playing with the app or even using the app with children before they post their feedback. This is the time you can write about how much you appreciate the work they do reviewing apps for you, providing creative app ideas and letting everyone know how good (or bad) the app is. ;-)

  1. I would like to nominate appable. I have followed this blog from day one. I have learned about a lot of apps through them that I now use on a daily basis for my son with Autism. They do their research and provide honest reviews on apps and device related products. If I can not find it on their website http://www.appabled.com/ all I have to do is go to their face book page and ask https://www.facebook.com/AppAble. Even if they have to research they will help me out. Love their honest and sometimes humorous approach.

  2. I would love to nominate http://smallbutkindamighty.com . Deanne has been a huge help to me over the years in finding apps. Her personal experience in using the apps with her own sons shines through in her reviews. If Deanne recommends an app you know it is going to be good and worth purchasing. Deanne is very open and honest in her reviews and if you need info on what type of app may be suitable for your own situation Deanne is a def a go to person. Small But Kinda Mighty is a great blog .

  3. The app bloggers I love the most are appabled.com and theappyladies.com – they write great reviews, particularly of apps that are of interest to the special needs community.

  4. By a million miles, Small But Kinda Mighty, is my favourite review blog. It is written with warmth and humour and the author’s expertise and knowledge shine through.
    I trust Deanne’s reviews. I know how thoroughly she (and her adorable boys) test the apps. I have purchased more of her recommendations than I can remember and can’t think of a single disappointment.

  5. Wow! I hope I can nominate more than one! I would love to nominate Small But Kinda Mighty for her great personal reviews as she uses the apps with her sons. I would also nominate The Appy Ladies, The iMums and Appabled. I rely on all these blogs for reliable info about the pros and cons of apps.

  6. Miss Speechie of Speech Time Fun always provides great reviews of your apps. I have purchased several Smarty Ears apps based on her thorough reviews. As a licensed speech-language pathologist in the school setting, I love to see how other SLPs use the apps in their therapy rooms.

  12. Twin Sisters Speech and Language Therapy provides unbiased reviews of products. Their information is excellent and is detailed. Using their reviews helps me make an informed purchase.

  13. TalkingTalk.Co.Za or TalkingTalk.org Nikki always gets to the essence of the App. She knows what can be used in real therapy settings. She spends a lot of time reviewing each app in depth and her reviews are really useful for developers and potential customers.
