Tell About This – Quickly Create Simple Digital Stories

Screen Shot 2014-01-13 at 4.31.04 PM From the developer of the popular story starter app Write About This comes a new iPad app called Tell About This (free and paid versions available). Tell About This is a fantastic new iPad app through which students can quickly create short digital stories. The concept behind the app is simple and well-executed. When students open Tell About This they can pick from an assortment of pictures that contain a story starter. Students listen and or read the story prompt and reply by tapping the record button to record a short story about the picture that they see. The stories that students record can be saved to their iPads or emailed to their teachers.

In addition to using the existing story prompts, Tell About This allows teachers and students to create and share their own story prompts. To create a story prompt just take a picture or import a picture from your camera roll, add some text, and record the prompt.

Tell About This is available in a free version and a paid version ($2.99). The free version of the app limits students to one story and a small collection of story prompts. The paid version of the app allows you access more story prompts, offers unlimited student profiles on the app (no email required), and unlimited story creations.
