Smarty Ears is featured on Yapp Guru

Smarty Ears is featured on Yapp Guru

SmartyEarsThis week Smarty Ears is being featured on the super awesome website Yapp Guru! We felt so honored to have been invited to be one of their first developers to be featured on their website.

Yapp Guru was founded by speech-pathologists who, like me feel overwhelmed by the number of apps on the app store. The website is designed as a place for you to find apps based on a variety of different areas, and to be able to get some more details about the apps as opposed to just looking at 5 screenshots and a description of the app.

Even though Apple recently allowed developers to add a video to the app descriptions ( super cool!), as we travel the country we see a real need for an easy place for clinicians to get a better idea of what the app is all about before purchasing.

Being featured on Yapp Guru is super amazing by itself. However, it would be even better if you could sign up to their website and vote for your favorite Smarty Ears app on their website! We wanted to also thank Mai & Tanya for the invitation to be a part of this incredible new service for speech-pathologists.


Smarty Ears introduces app bundles

Smarty Ears introduces app bundles

Apple heard our requests! You can now buy many of our apps as part of a bundle and save big. We have bundled our apps in several different bundles based on app categories and you can not only save big by buying the apps as part of a bundle but also save by getting a credit if you already own one or a few of the apps included in that specific bundle.

Smarty Ears has submitted many different bundles for Apple to review and approve. We currently have three bundles available:

The first bundle is an “Elementary School Language Bundle” and it contains 6 apps targeting different language skills:

App Bundle Language

As you can see the price for this bundle is $39.99. The app store also shows how much you would pay per each app if you had bought these apps separately: $59.94! This is a savings of $20 for this bundle.

The second bundle is a basic bundle for Articulation. This basic articulation bundle includes three of everyone’s favorite articulation apps: One assessment and two therapy apps.

This bundle is $89.99 and if you were to buy these apps separately you would pay $119.97. This is a $30 savings for this bundle. Amazing right?!

The third bundle we have available is a bundle for our apps for the adult population and it includes three apps.

Getting credit for the apps you already own

Apple will give you credit for the money you spent on the app included on the bundle. For example, let’s imagine that you already paid for Articulate it and you still want to get the other two apps and save. Apple will display how much it will cost you to “complete the album” taking into account what you already paid for that one app.

Think of it as when you buy a song of an album, when you are ready to commit to the whole album you get a discount for the single song you already bought.
