Describe It, developed by Pocket SLP, is a fun app to work on vocabulary and describing skills with clients of all ages.
Describe It contains the categories of: Animals, Household, Transportation, Clothes, Occupation, Miscellaneous, and Food. A series of seven auditory clues: taste, touch, function, sight, hearing, smell, and category are given to aid the client in guessing the item.
It comes with three modes. The first mode is "Study" where the client is taught the vocabulary from each. The second mode is "Pass it" which is similar to the popular party game Catch Phrase and can be played in a group. The third mode is "Guess It" where an object from a specific category is hidden and the client must tap the clues to guess the object.
Describe It is available through the App Store for $9.99.
A few things I hope for a future update would be the ability to add your own picture and categories. Another thing I hope for is the ability to add your own clues. Some of the clues were a bit weak and were not as descriptive as I would like. For example many of the taste clues offer clues more related to texture such as "crunchy" rather than something like "bitter."
Overall I like this app and have been using it with my clients as the different modes can work with a variety of ages.
