The app opens up to a page that looks exactly alike to the picture above. It allows you to select Multiple Choice Questions, Open-Ended Questions, or Silly Sentence Questions. The numbers of questions for each phoneme in each area ranges somewhere in the 20's (ex. multiple choice questions for initial /s/ has 24 questions). Note: I haven't looked at every single phoneme in every single questions section.

Each question bunch targets 7 phonemes = initial, final, and medial /s/, /z/, /r/, /l/, "sh", "ch", and "th". It also targets /s/ blends, /r/ blends, and /l/ blends.
See some of the pictures below to get a feel for the types of questions.
Example of initial "sh" multiple choice questions
Example of final /s/ open-ended questions
Example of initial /r/ silly sentences
One great thing about this app is that you can print the sentences and questions or you can email them to another person. So if a parent asks for some carry-over practice for at home or over the summer, you can easily email the parent these sentences and questions.
Areas of improvement: my main issue with the app is that it's pretty plain and unappealing (see the above pictures). Some pictures or graphics would make the app more inviting to children (or even adults). Also, I would like to have some sort of short quiz at the back to test the child's progress with the phonemes (something that the clinician can just press plus or minus). I mean, sure, you can do that on your own. I just think it would be a nice addition to the app.
I was surprised at who emailed me the free app. It was Erik X. Raj who is a fellow SLP blogger! I had no idea that he also co-founded Pocket SLP!
The app is currently only available on iPad and iPhone.
