Speak Agent Expands iPhone & iPad Access

July 08, 2021 | Ben Grimley |

This week we made major upgrades to the Speak Agent mobile app (v1.2.2) for students. It now supports work on more than 95% of student assignments on iPhones® or iPads®. This means that students can do virtually everything in Speak Agent on iOS devices!

Diagram It!

The app now supports all four modes of Diagram It, from labeling to writing and voice recording.

Explain Your Work

All three levels of the Explain Your Work activity are supported in the app. This includes the ability to submit writing work to the classroom teacher.

Math Puzzle Maker

Students can both create and solve their math puzzles on iPhone and iPad. This includes submitting puzzles and answers to teachers.


Work is already underway on an app for Android phones and tablets. We will announce a launch date this fall. The Android app will have the same features as the web and iOS apps do.
