{Make Articulation Dice} SLP Hack for the Photo Dice app

{Make Articulation Dice} Wanna shake up those articulation drills to make them more fun? Check out this FREE app. Because ads are distracting to my patients, I purchased the .99 IAP to remove the ads, uploaded a plain wooden background and then made customized articulation dice using pics from the Smarty Symbols Image Club  (https://smartysymbols.com). You can import any pictures you want from the Camera Roll into the app or take pictures with the iPad or iPhone camera. You can either use the app in “rolling” mode or leave them wiggling so dice can be flicked or tapped off the screen as the child says the target words. Even saw the option to e-mail your dice creations (that person will need an iOS device (iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch) running iOS 3.2 or later and a copy of the Photo Dice app installed to open the file).

.

Update: I realized that it was even easier to use the Custom Boards- Premium app by Smarty Ears (https://appsto.re/us/1hHNB.i) to make pics for the dice. I used the 5 x 6 template, saved it as a picture in my Camera Roll and then cropped out each pic to upload into the dice.
