Education software specialist Crick Software has recently launched a brand new book making app for the iPad, designed to help primary school pupils of all abilities develop their literacy skills and confidence.

Clicker Books is the latest of Crick’s Clicker Apps, which each focus on one key aspect of the company’s popular reading and writing software, Clicker 6. Clicker Books gives children the tools they need to create their very own talking books. The intuitive interface makes it easy for pupils to independently add their own text, paint pictures, insert photographs and record sound.

As they work, children benefit from key Clicker features including speech feedback and word prediction, and teachers can provide extra writing support in the form of word and picture banks.

In addition to helping children create their own books, Clicker Books enables teachers to put together personalised reading books for their learners, tailoring the subject matter and comprehension level to pupils’ particular learning needs and objectives.

As with all Clicker Apps, Clicker Books users have access to a growing bank of ready-made reading books and book making templates via Crick’s LearningGrids site.

“Given the incredibly positive reception our first apps received last year, we are very excited to launch this latest addition to the Clicker Apps family,” says Crick Software CEO, John Crick. “Many of our customers have requested a book making app with the customisable reading and writing support that Crick is known for, and we really look forward to getting their feedback on Clicker Books!”

Clicker Books is currently available on the App Store for £21.99. For further information please contact Crick Software on 01604 671691 or visit the Crick Software website.
