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.
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.
Today I spoke to Craig Evans of Autism Hangout about ArtikPix, a speech sound app that I co-created with my friend, Jason Rinn. Among the topics, I discussed research incorporated in the design of ArtikPix, and how the app’s layout was updated. I’d like to add more information regarding the layout. The right and left arrows at the bottom of the deck selection screen have now been replaced by a swiping gesture. Starting from the first page of decks, swipe right to left to see the remaining ones. This is the same process for accessing app screens on an iOS device such as an iPhone.
Jason Rinn and I updated our website, rinnapps.com. The site has information for all our apps that we’ve created, including ArtikPix and Percentally. We also have information regarding PhonoPix, a new minimal pairs app that we recently submitted to the iOS App Store. The app will be available as soon as Apple approves it. Below is a video demo of PhonoPix.
ArtikPix and ArtikPix – Full 1.2.2 were updated on the App Store. Here are the new features:
- Audio added to the sentence level in the flashcard activity
- Audio feedback added to scoring in the flashcard and matching activities
- 73 cards added to the r deck for a total of 113 cards
- Multi-tasking for iOS 4.2 on iPad
