Fast ForWord on iPad® now Available

By developing an iPad® version, Fast ForWord is taking advantage of the fact that everything is fun on the iPad®, making the software not only more accessible but also more captivating for kids.


While there are minor changes to the software, designed to take advantage of the iPad’s touch screen technology, Fast ForWord on the iPad® is helping bring students to Fast ForWord:

  • Even more engaging. The bright, animated graphics of most Fast ForWord games are even more compelling and captivating, especially for younger users.
  • Improved portability. Since the iPad® is designed to be portable, Fast ForWord can be carried around, giving you more opportunities to fit in Fast ForWord sessions or partial sessions — in a waiting room, at school during a break, anytime, anywhere there is Internet.
  • Fully interchangeable. Because Fast ForWord can be accessed from any device, you have the opportunity to switch back and forth between your iPad® and a computer.
