Great Free App: YAKit Kids — Make any photo talk

I'll admit that I love those commercials and videos featuring talking babies or pets. Interested in creating a little comedy with personal pictures? A free app by Freak 'n Genius lets users make any photo talk. YAKit Kids is ideal for busting summer boredom, long car rides or just some good old family fun. I'm also thinking of all the ways I could use it to liven up speech therapy sessions this fall. Articulation drills will go from tedious to hilarious with YAKit Kids. Take a photo, choose one from the photo stream or do a web photo search. Customize photos by creating a mouth or adding pre-created features like faces, characters, special effects or props. Get creative and download today.

If you would like to download YAKit Kids (iPhone/iPad, Free), please support Smart Apps for Special Needs by using the link provided:

No ads or in-app purchases. External links to email or other social media apps under a gated tab. Also offers a web photo search option. YAKit uses advanced filtering technology to remove adult content, but does not hand-select each image.

My kids are having a ball with this app. I love to hear them giggling away while using their creativity. It was a big hit with my three year old nephew and my own teenaged children. The fact that all the content is truly free with no in-app purchases makes me love it even more.

Kids can add multiple photos together to create scenes, change pitch, re-record and delete. There are many editing features and each YAK can be saved to the camera roll and easily shared. The interface is simple and easy to use. This app would be a fun addition to any therapy session or classroom.

From iTunes:

Make ANY photo talk, just by speaking! Pets, friends, food, family, nature, artwork... anything! 

 YAKiT Kids allows kids of all ages to let their creativity loose and share their creations with family and friends in a safe environment. Parents and teachers never have to worry as their children let their little imaginations run wild with YAKiT Kids. 
 • Make quick and fun animated videos with multiple scenes. 
• Change the pitch of the voice to make it even funnier. 
• Add expressive animated stickers to customize the photos - including facial features, props, characters, and special effects. 
• Save the videos directly to your phone to send anywhere 

This app is the perfect entertainment and learning tool for the home, in the car, or even in educational settings for teachers and students. 

YAKiT Kids won’t collect any personal information or include any third-party advertising, in-app purchases, or social sharing features. 

Today is Sarah's 17th wedding anniversary. She would like to thank her husband for loving her despite her serious iTunes addiction.
