  • TouchChat® Releases 2.26.0 Software Update

    Support for iOS 9 & 10 has been discontinued
    As technology advances rapidly, it is increasingly difficult to ensure compatibility  with out-of-date iOS versions. In order to provide our iOS customers with the best TouchChat app experience, we’ve decided to discontinue support for iOS 9 & iOS 10. Read more here.

    Scanning has been added as a standard feature available within the application
    Use the Switch Setup Wizard to connect one or two switches. Settings within the app are compatible with the new AeroSwitch™ from PRC-Saltillo via Bluetooth connection and can be used with or without the ChatWrap™.

    A button action for texting has been added, allowing you to program a button to open the iMessage texting

    The SymbolStix® library has been updated to provide the option to change skin tones within a vocabulary
    Allows you to change the skin tone of all the images at once to better represent a person's uniqueness. These changes are applied to the entire file through Settings.

    PRC-Saltillo has partnered with TheVoiceKeeper to provide integration of a custom voice within TouchChat
    Available to integrate into your TouchChat app for $75, TheVoiceKeeper is easy to use and record voices using your iPad. The more recordings you provide, the better the voice will be.

  • An Important Message Regarding TouchChat Support for iOS 9 & 10

    TouchChat® by Saltillo will discontinue support for iOS 9 & iOS 10 starting with the 2.26 release coming in July 2020.

    Why?

    With every release, we ensure that new features can be used by supported iOS versions (currently iOS 9-13). As technology advances rapidly, it is increasingly difficult to ensure compatibility with out-of-date iOS versions. In order to provide our iOS customers with the best TouchChat app experience, we’ve decided to discontinue support for iOS 9 & iOS 10.

    Anything you need to do?

    We advise our iOS users running iOS 9 or 10 to upgrade to a higher iOS version, ideally the latest version. By doing this you'll gain access to all the latest updates and features - giving you the best TouchChat app experience!

    What are the new minimum supported iOS devices?

    The minimum requirement for iOS devices supported by the TouchChat app is iOS version 11.0 or later.

    What if your device doesn't support iOS 11?

    If your device doesn't support any of the newer iOS versions, you should know that:

    You can still use or download TouchChat app version 2.25.0 and will be able to continue to use that even after July 2020; however:

    You will not be able to update beyond 2.25. Therefore, new features introduced after that will not be available on devices running iOS 9 or 10.

    Questions? Please feel free to reach out to us at info@touchchatapp.com.
