Amazing App Stories – A Collaborative Writing App for iPads
Amazing App Stories is a free iPad app that anyone can use to contribute to on-going fiction stories. The concept of Amazing App Stories is to provide a community space for collaborative fiction writing. When you open the app you can choose a story genre, read a short story that has already been started, and add your own ideas to the story. Amazing App Stories gives you thirty minutes to write your 200 to 800 word addition to an existing story.
Amazing App Stories doesn’t provide a way to save and share your writing outside of the app. So if you wanted to see what your students wrote they would have to take a screenshot and send it to you. Even if you don’t have students write on the Amazing App Stories app, you could still use it as a source of writing prompts.
Update from the developer: The teacher can create a custom genre and name it eg the name of the school class. If the teacher writes the first paragraph, the teacher can follow the continuation of the story on the iPad.
