Here is a new aac app that you might be interested in testing. We developed it for our son that is non verbal in the spectrum. He used some AAC devices and when the ipad came out we thought it would be great for him but we did not see anything at his level (they were either too simple or too complicated). We decided to develop use2talk. It is really easy to use and has many features. You can take photos directly with the ipad and in a couple of steps place them in the program and record sounds so that you can use the image right away. You can have different sized icons, so that you can adjust the number that are visible at any given time, you can move these icons, you can record sound (but it does not have automatic robo-sounds), you can change background colors, we even did a simple schedule........many features, all of the stuff that we wanted to have for our son. He uses it at home and at school, approved and supported by his speech therapists and we think that it is an alternative to kids like him that cannot yet read or type.
You can see how it works at http://www.use2talk.com/
