Beautifully Simple

Grid for iPad’s touch-first design creates an intuitive user experience. Switch access is also available using Apple’s iOS switch settings.

In-app Editing

Edit and create new resources with ease. Grid for iPad enables you to quickly add new vocabulary to existing grid sets.

You can also start from scratch and build your own. Tailor everything from the layout of your grid, to the appearance of your cells and the symbols you use.

Familiar Grid Explorer

Easily add and organise your grid sets from Grid Explorer, your home screen within the app. This is where all your grid sets are stored.

Use alongside Grid 3

Create a Smartbox account to auto-sync content between Grid for iPad and Grid 3 using Dropbox.

Your content is stored in the cloud, meaning any changes you make to your grid sets and settings will be updated on both platforms.

This also means your grid sets are backed up, so if something happens to your iPad you won’t lose your content.

Remote Editing

Remote editing enables anyone to edit grid sets from anywhere – using Grid 3 on Windows.

All you need is the free trial version of Grid 3 and the login details for the Smartbox account. Make the edits you require, and the changes will instantly appear in Grid for iPad – so simple!
