Sign of the Day - OBLIGATION
The Signing Savvy Member App is now available on the Amazon App Store. Having the app on the Amazon App Store makes it easier to install the app on Kindle Fire devices. The Signing Savvy Member App has been available on the Apple App Store for iOS devices and Google Play for Android devices for some time, so we are excited to be able to offer it on the Amazon App Store now as well.
The Signing Savvy Member App allows full members to search and browse signs and word lists, create word lists, and use digital flash cards.
NOTE: While you can access the full website through the browser on most of the mobile devices, the app presents a more streamlined mobile interface.
We launched Signing Savvy in January 2009 with the goal of creating a comprehensive online sign language resource. Over the last four years the site has grown dramatically in content, features, and usage. We are so grateful for the support of all of our active users. It is you, our users, that make Signing Savvy so special. We particularly are thankful for our full members who allow us to continue to grow and maintain the site and enhance its features. As we celebrate the end of our fourth year, we are thrilled about the things to come in 2013 and beyond!
With that said, we are excited to announce that a new version of the Signing Savvy Member App for both Apple iOS devices and Android devices is now available. This long anticipated update addresses all known issues with the previous version, enhances the interface, adds additional sign information, and allows for searching of dates, times, and currency. And, most notably, the app now takes advantage of the iPad, iPad Mini, iPhone 5 Retina display, and Android tablet display if you are on one of those devices. The Signing Savvy Member App is for Signing Savvy full members. If you are not yet a full member, you can still use the app to easily check the Sign of the Day on your mobile device.
This video gives a brief overview of the Signing Savvy service and the inspiration behind it by one of the Signing Savvy founders, John Miller. In addition to his work on Signing Savvy, John has been a teacher, educator, and administrator at the K-12 and University level. His focus throughout his career has been on Deaf Education and working with Deaf and Hard of Hearing children and their parents.
Transcript of Video
Over 90% of deaf and hard of hearing children are born into hearing families. So that statistic alone is shocking for a lot of people to hear. But what that means is that over 90% of the children are coming home with a family that sign language is not their primary language.
From all of us at Signing Savvy, we wish you joy and happiness during this holiday season and all the best in 2013!
The holiday season is just around the corner and if you are like me, the thought of "who to get what" is on your mind. A Signing Savvy membership is a unique, thoughtful, and valuable gift to offer to your friends, family, or colleagues.
In the last few years, we have received numerous requests for the ability to purchase Signing Savvy Gift Memberships. Well, now you can!
How does it work?
When you purchase a gift membership, you will receive an Activation Code (and activation instructions) that you can email or print to include in a card or wrap up as part of a gift. The receiver of the gift will be able to use the Activation Code to gain full access to all of the Signing Savvy features. The gift membership will begin once the gift receiver activates it.
The gift that gives back.
Similar to our recommendation program, as an added bonus for purchasing the gift and giving it to someone else, you will receive time toward a full membership in return! How does it work?
|Membership Gift Purchased||What You Receive***|
|3-Year Membership||60 days of full membership|
|12-Month Membership||30 days of full membership|
|4-Month Membership||10 days of full membership|
|1-Month Membership||5 days of full membership|
If you already have a full membership, the time will be added on to your membership. If you don't yet have a full membership, you will once you purchase the gift. The more gifts you give, the more you receive.
*** NOTE: You do not receive the bonus days if you gift the membership to yourself.
