"Awesome, awesome, awesome! I wonder why it hasn’t been developed before. It is great to have the situational modules at hand so easily. This is just perfect for us to prepare sessions with clients with a minimum of time consumption. It is really nice that you have chosen very interactive and playful contexts that are age independent."
Alycia Berg, MS, CCC-SLP, Boston Children’s Hospital

"I have to say, I really like Sono Flex. I believe that the control that a user has over it is going to be very helpful and prove to be successful over other currently available products where one can just flip through screens without having access to a full communication system that supports interaction.
I really love the Context-based pages. It is great that you include phrases in these as well for quick interactions that are specific to the context-based pages. Glad to see About Me as a context page.
The way you can swap out context-based pages is really brilliant and helps to expand the communication opportunities without increasing the navigation demands."
Judy Lariviere, M.Ed., OTR/L, Communication Specialist, Rett Clinic, Oakland Children’s Hospital

"Looks good. I like the way the vocab is laid out and you can change one bottom bar it’s possibly the fastest way of changing vocab I have seen."
Will Wade, Lead Occupational Therapist at Kent Communication and Assistive Technology Service, Researcher at Oxford Brookes University, Operator of Apps for AAC website

"I love the vocabulary and the mix of core words and situations.
What I like: Layout of pages; no vertical scroll; grammar feature; situations, situations, situations. Editing is very different, but once I got used to it I liked it (I like to see the whole page as a list, that is cool)."

Great App but... Sono Flex is a great solution that allows me to combine my brothers AAC needs with his gaming and streaming needs. However there are some essential features that need to be added to the app. 1. The ability to back up the app and transfer the data to another device for when you want to change models. 2. The ability to add pronunciations to words so that uncommon words are pronounced correctly 3. An option to set the screen size to 7" as at the moment a large percentage of the screen is unused making the buttons smaller and harder to read and use. (Nexus 7) With these additions Sono Flex could be an even better application, worthy of 5 stars.

Great "out of the box!" I love this app. My son had been using a dynavox for a while and can maneuver like no ones business. The school has ipads and have been strongly suggesting I go the same route. I was ecstatic that this is both awesome and available for istuff and android. Trial on my epic phone, now full version pad on his new galaxy tab 2. I'm great at customizing pages, etc, with other devices, its so time consuming when starting new. Only thing I'd like to see is to be able to change the speed of the voices.
