Apps for Stuttering
This is the beginning of a page featuring APPs that are currently being marketed for stuttering. No endorsement is implied, and several are simply "not recommended" at all. If you know of other APPs, you may suggest them by contacting Judy Kuster
NOT recommended - just as people try to sell "cures" for stuttering on the Internet, some are starting to use APPs to sell their ideas. They are not linked here. You can explore them if you want by entering the title into Google or on Yahoo APPs search. The prices listed were current on February 23, 2012.
The following are APPs that I cannot be sure about. Let the buyer beware, but you may want to explore.
- Stuttering - Its Cause and Cure - 99 cents for iPhone
- Prevent Stuttering - Tips and Tricks to Help Combat Stuttering
- 99 cents for iPhone in one place, same thing under Prevent Stuttering - $9.99 for iPhone in another place
- Stuttering - Simple Techniques To Control Your Stutter - 99 cents for iPhone
- Stuttering: Discover Simple Techniques to Help Control Your Stutter! - $2.99 for iPhone
- Stammering: Its Cause and Cure - by Benjamin Bogue - historically interesting, but certainly NOT a cure!! - $2.99 for iPhone (The book is also available free online in the Gutenberg library and you can read about this "school" started in 1919 and hear from someone who attended if you are interested by putting "bogue" into the search engine of The Stuttering Home Page.
Maybe worth checking if you are interested on spending money, but I have not downloaded or evaluated them so explore them carefully before investing in any of them.
