Beta version 2.0 done

December 8, 2020

It took a little longer than anticipated, but of course anticipation is not what it used to be. However, we now have a beta version available, ready for testing. There's some tweaking to be done, both in the app and the surrounding information (like the website). We're planning a final release in the months to come.

Communicado 2.0 is available for external beta testing. If you are interested in helping us out, please let us know. You'll need an iPad with at least iOS 11. We'll be happy to make you a member of our beta testing team!

Just send us an email to state your interest: .

Work in progress

April 7, 2020

With great pleasure we can tell you we are working hard on creating a new version: Communicado 2.0. Interviews with users gave us an impression of the strong and weak points of Communicado 1.6. We are of course aiming at keeping the strong points and improving the weak points. For instance, for end users we want to keep the ease of use, and for administrators we want to improve the way to create and share documents.

Communicado 2.0 is completely revised and rewritten. For us, the changes are already clearly visible. At the same time we wanna make sure existing users won't be frightened by a new look. A challenge, indeed! We are treading carefully but steadily. Expect a new release by this fall.

The best in the test

October 30, 2018

At a meeting organised by Dinges! it was announced today that Communicado is the best usable aphasia app. Two test results were published and in both tests Communicado was on the top of the list: the usability for users, and the amount of time it takes to answer a given question.

We are proud, of course, but we want to stress that other apps had good scores as well. Which app is the best for an individual user strongly depends on the capabilities and the limitations of that particular user.

New company name and website

May 25, 2018

Recently, I've changed my company name from "zdndrp" to "effenix". Nothing much changes, except I will be cutting down on some of my projects and concentrate more on developing apps. Currently, I'm working on a completely revised version of Communicado. It'll take some more time.

There's a new company website: www.effenix.nl. The Communicado website has a changed address (but the old one still works): communicado.eu.

Communicado available

Communicado is for sale!
It's very hard for a software developer to release the initial version of an application. There's always more work to do, but you gotta be realistic.
Therefore, right now: Communicado in the App Store!
