    1. Hi Nicole-

      Sorry that you are having trouble with this app. I would try going into your iTunes account and looking at your recent purchases. It should appear there if the transaction went through. After this you can log into your account and use iCloud to redownload the app. If that doesn\’t work I would contact iTunes support. They have always been really helpful.

  1. If you are using the Proloquo2go app, you should also go to and like the Proloquo2go Facebook page. They are REALLY good about answering questions you may have and are very quick w/ responses too!! 🙂
