Free Social Skills app: Let's Be Social! offers new FREE lite version

Currently, the free version is no longer available in the app store. We apologize for any confusion and will let everyone know if and when it becomes available.

If you've been eyeballing Let's Be Social! but are hesitant to pay $14.99 before giving it a test drive, you are in luck! There is a new lite version, which is free. The lite version functions the same way as the full, only with less content. Users get two lessons preloaded as well as the ability to create one custom lesson with 3 questions. The lite version is not only useful in showing what the full version offers, but contains plenty of useful content to work on social skills and pragmatic language.

Only the app's developer can control when an app is free or not. This app was verified to be free at the time of this post. We make no guarantees otherwise.**
