Felt Board is a versatile app that is simple enough to target a wide variety of language goals. Children and adults will be familiar with the layout and concept because it is designed after felt boards used in schools. The layout easy to use and look is beautiful with bright colors and simple shapes of all items. Users can select a wide range of backgrounds and items from a categorized side bar to add to a scene and address language goals such as, categorizing, naming/labeling, story-telling, following directions, and describing (just to name a few). Users can also take quick pictures of a scene to be discussed/described later, or to create a saved story sequence.
