Clicker Docs works nicely as an iPad word processor, especially since it's easy to print and save. It's the extra support for kids that make it really stand out. Hearing their sentences read to them as they type lets kids hear how they sound, giving them a chance to fix mistakes or revise to make them sound as they intended. The word banks are a bit tricky to figure out but are well worth the effort. A few are preloaded on the app (such as alternatives to "said"), but it's easy to cut and paste text into the word-bank creator to quickly add word lists for any subject or topic. There's an option to exclude the more common 100 words ("so," "and," "the," "or," and so on) so they won't be included in the word banks unless they're wanted.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
