ArtikPix and ArtikPix – Full version 2.2 were updated prior to the holidays. The major new feature is landscape mode for iPad, which was heavily requested by users. Version 2.2 also adds a feature to the matching activity that involves pressing the Done button after all matches have been made. Users had also requested this feature for enabling more practice at the end of matching, particularly when the configurable option of Hide Matched Cards is turned OFF. If you like these new features in ArtikPix and ArtikPix – Full 2.2, please rate and review the app on iTunes.
On behalf of Eric Sailers and RinnApps, thank you to all ArtikPix users. We appreciate receiving feedback to make ArtikPix a leading speech articulation app. We’re looking forward to working more with users in 2012. Happy Holidays!
Amanda Backof, Speech-Language Pathologist who runs speechlanguageneighborhood.com, has created homework sheets for ArtikPix. The sheets can be downloaded on her website at http://www.speechlanguageneighborhood.com/articulation/. I also thought I would provide the download links here to the homework sheets:
The downloadable documents are available as of 11.17.11. Check Amanda’s website in the future for updates. She is planning to add more homework sheets.
Thanks for the support in #B2SAppSpecials during 8.14.11-8.15.11. It was a very successful promotion for ArtikPix – Full and all other apps involved. If you like ArtikPix – Full, please give us a positive iTunes review by clicking here.
Since I have upcoming iOS app workshops that involve hands-on portions, I’ve been working on text tutorials. The most recent tutorial completed is for ArtikPix/ArtikPix – Full 2.0. The latest version of the app was released in June 2011, and there are several new features including group scoring. Check out the ArtikPix/ArtikPix – Full 2.0 tutorial below to learn how to use group scoring and the other great new features.
11/8/10 Update: The free version of ArtikPix 1.2.1 was updated today on the App Store. Identical to ArtikPix – Full, the audio was restored on the 2nd generation iPod touch, and increased in loudness across all other iOS devices. I highly urge all ArtikPix users to update to 1.2.1 for improved audio.
10/31/10 Update: Apple expedited their review of ArtikPix – Full 1.2.1, which fixes the audio problems particularly on the 2nd generation iPod touch. It also makes the audio louder across all other iOS devices. Once Apple approves ArtikPix 1.2.1 update, then the same fix will apply to the free version with In App purchases.
ArtikPix and ArtikPix – Full 1.2 (universal apps for iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad) updates were approved yesterday by Apple. If you previously downloaded the free or full versions of ArtikPix, you can get 1.2 for free in the updates section of the App Store. Here’s a look at the new features:
- Sound group title added to the top of flashcards and matching cards to clarify scoring
- Sentence level added to flashcards, which is accessed by tapping the around arrow
- Ability to collect scores for the word and sentence levels
- Only the sound groups containing collected scores are shown on Nice Job and Save(d) Scores screens
- Fixed sound issues that occurred during simultaneous action of pre-recorded audio and voice recording
- For ArtikPix only: Restore purchase feature added for transferring In App Purchases to other iOS devices
