PicBoard features

Click to zoom
Full access to your Photo Library
PicBoard can use any image, photo or symbol you want in your boards, including photos stored in your Camera Roll. Adding images is quick and easy.

PicBoard is affordable because it does not come with built-in pictures or symbols, which many other apps charge extra for. You can easily use your own pictures and symbols to personalise the app to you, your children and your clients, without paying extra for symbols which you may never use! The screenshots on this page use symbols for demonstration purposes which are not included with the app.

Backup and restore boards
Backed-up boards can be copied to your PC or Mac using iTunes. They can then be copied to other devices so you can share your boards.

Click to zoom
Visual timers
Give users a visual indication of the duration of an activity directly on your boards. TalkBoard will allow a sound to be recorded and optionally played back when the timer has finished. Timers can also trigger other timers when they finish, allowing sequences of activities to be displayed to the user.

Click to zoom
Share boards over Bluetooth
Boards can be copied between devices running TalkBoard and PicBoard wirelessly over Bluetooth.

Click to zoom
Print and export
Print directly from PicBoard to AirPrint enabled printers. Alternatively, export your boards to PDF files then copy to your PC or Mac using iTunes to print to any printer.
Support for Boardmaker images
Boardmaker images are protected so they can't be used directly in PicBoard. The free PicCutter tool is provided to help you to use Boardmaker images in PicBoard.

Record sounds on supported devices
Recorded sounds can be played back by tapping on the cell, or using switch scanning with appropriate hardware.

iPod Touch 1st generation not supported as it does not include a built-in speaker. iPod Touch 2nd and 3rd generations are supported but will require an external microphone. iPod Touch 4th generation is fully supported. Please ensure the version of your device will meet your needs before purchasing.
