iOS 7 "Settings" Bug Fix Being Resolved

Just a quick note regarding the recent iOS 7 update: We are aware that the Settings screen is unresponsive on the iPad since the iOS 7 update. I would like to assure all Stick Pick users that we are working to resolve the issue. We are concurrently working on an iOS 7 "facelift" to bring the overall look and feel of Stick Pick more in line with the new iOS 7 user interface. We're sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused. Stay tuned, and thanks for using Stick Pick.

Coming this Fall to Stick Pick for iOS devices: Import from Dropbox and iCloud Sync.

Stick Pick Now Available on Kindle Fire!

Attention Kindle Fire users: Stick Pick, the popular iOS teacher tool app that supports higher order thinking and ESL question stems is now available in the Amazon Marketplace. Just last week, Google accepted the Android version of the app into its Google Play Store. Prior to that, Stick Pick had only been available for iPhones and iPod touch devices (and iPads with 2X pixel doubling). Stick Pick for iOS received a long-awaited update, turning it into a Universal App, which means current iPhone users receive the iPad version for free. The update adds landscape mode for iPad, as well as a more intuitive "assess" button, replacing the small checkbox.

The wait is finally over. Stick Pick, the popular iOS teacher-tool app, is finally available for Android tablets and smartphones. Since Stick Pick first became available in the iTunes app store back in June, 2011, over 25,000 users have found it to be among their most useful classroom apps. In addition to being an Apple "Staff Pick" for a few weeks last year, Stick Pick has been, and continues to be among Apple's "Top 100" Education apps. Presently, it's featured in a special "Instructional Tools" section on iTunes, providing precious exposure. Stick Pick's user base continues to grow. On average, Stick Pick acquires anywhere from 1,000 - 2,000 new users per month.  News of the app spreads via word of mouth, through social media outlets, blogs, and at conferences, staff meetings, and presentations around the world.

In addition to its release on the Google play store, Stick Pick is also coming to the Amazon Marketplace later this week.

Currently, Stick Pick is under review at Apple for its much needed iPad update, an update that will take advantage of the iPad's larger screen. Users who have already purchased Stick Pick will automatically receive the app on their iPads.
