Many innovative new features in Proloquo2Go 5.0

Proloquo2Go 5.0 is available now!
Proloquo2Go 5.0 is now available for you to download. We have been working hard to include several features based on your feedback:

Quickly find words

Search has been on the wish list of our community and of everyone at AssistiveWare for a long time. After thorough investigation of the different ways of implementing, we think it is even better than you expected. The new Search feature has been designed with a clinical perspective; not only will you see the path to the button you’re looking for, Proloquo2Go will also guide you through the path step-by-step. If the searched button is located in your Storage, it will automatically be added to the user’s vocabulary.

Keep growing language skills

To make sure the user’s language skills grow and the user doesn’t become stuck at the same vocabulary, we have introduced switching between levels and grid sizes within the same vocabulary in Proloquo2Go 4. Changing the grid size unfortunately isn’t ideal for the user. As locations of buttons move, the person needs to re-learn how to find words. To make sure users reach their full potential, we recommend selecting a large grid size. If this is considered too overwhelming for the user, hide buttons and gradually reveal them as user skills grow. However, this is a time-consuming and complicated task. What if Proloquo2Go does this automatically? Our new Progressive Language feature helps to quickly and systematically hide and reveal buttons in a developmental sequence.
Progressive Language in Proloquo2Go 5 allows clinicians to take a research led approach to language development whilst staying true to best practice in AAC. It is one of the most exciting developments in the AAC world in 2017.

Never lose backups again

The biggest nightmare for all professionals, parents and users: something happens to the app or device, and then realizing that a backup was never made. Fortunately, with Proloquo2Go 5’s automatic backups to Dropbox, Google Drive, and iCloud, saving a backup is one less thing you have to worry about! When any of these features are enabled, Proloquo2Go will automatically upload a backup whenever an internal backup is made. Note that an internet connection is required to transfer these backups.
Other improvements:
  • Adds Text to Speech to Proloquo2Go for Apple Watch, which allows you to not only show your message to your communication partner but also speak the message out loud
  • New Tools Pop-up for easy access to actions like copy/paste, switching languages and Search
  • Several small enhancements and bug fixes


Proloquo2Go is available exclusively on the iTunes Store. As always this update is free for existing users. Before you update, please read this blog post to make sure you are prepared.

Hello. I want to purchase Proloquo2go for our school iPad when it is on sale. Our IT department suggested I purchase gift cards to pay for this. Is this the best way to go about this?

Hello Pam,

Schools are encouraged to purchase through Apple's App Store Volume Purchase Program for Education. For more information please see:

The Volume Purchasing Program for Education allows you to buy one or more licenses to be used on the number of devices you buy licenses for. These licenses can be either deployed through a single iTunes account for all licensed devices (multiple devices on one account) or through individual iTunes accounts for each device (one account per device).

Know that the App Store Volume Purchase Program for Education is the only way for educational institutions to have their tax exempt status observed for iTunes purchases. In addition, even though Apple refers to it as a "Volume Purchase Program", you can purchase as little as one app license.

We cover this and related topics more depth in our FAQ:

Hope this is helpful!
