Deployment Advice and Prices

Our apps are easy to deploy in school and preschool settings. We offer volume purchase discounts, on-site training, and support via email and telephone. You'll also find a comprehensive user guide for each of our apps, and answers to frequently asked questions, on this website.

A typical deployment for nursery (kindergarten) settings and primary (elementary) school or a special school would have our apps installed on each iPad in a class. For a mainstream secondary school (K6-12) it may be more appropriate to deploy to selected devices used by pupils with additional needs.

Apps for Each Pupil

Our most commonly used iPad apps in schools are Special Words, Special Stories and Special Numbers. The first two of these are also available for Android.

Purchasing and Deployment

How to Buy

If not already registered, register your school with Apple's Schools Programme.

You will then be able to purchase licences and download apps from the App Store for Education. Discounts are available for buying in quantities of 20 or more.

To find our apps on the store, search for Special iApps. Alternatively, just click on the Download for your School badge at the top of this page, and from the pull-down menu select an app. This will take you directly to the relevant page on the store.

You must have enough licences for each app to to cover all the iPads you install it on.

If you have more than a few iPads, we recommend you use Apple School Manager and an MDM solution (providers include Lightspeed and Jamf) to deploy apps and manage licences.

You can also deploy our Android apps on Chromebooks. For a brief overview, read our blog article. Contact us about purchasing options.
