    Description of the app:
    Fat Cat Snappy Chat is designed to be fun entertainment but it is also real augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) software. It includes 160 colloquial phrases of kids slang, a real voice that speaks them, and the ability to send those messages as texts, tweets, IMs or emails. The voice is sometimes angry and sometimes whiney, so its perfect for a nine-year-old (or someone who wants to talk like a nine-year-old). Learn AAC skills or just chat with your friends. This app is specifically designed for that kind of phatic conversation - and makes back talk and comebacks a snap. Fat Cat Snappy Chat is rated 9+ because of some mild bathroom humor, though it also has parental controls to hide those phrases.

    What makes it special is the real voice combined with e-text capabilities; the unique rapid-fire interface for kid-friendly chat; and the universal design that makes it accessible to people with disabilities.
