My Story – Create Multimedia Books on Your iPad
My Story is a nice iPad app for creating multimedia story books on your iPad. There are other apps that offer the same functions as My Story, but the appeal of My Story is that kids don’t have to create accounts and multiple students can use the same installation of the app.
To create a story on My Story open the app and tap the icon to add an author. Then tap the author’s profile icon and select “add a book.” Tapping “add a book” will open a blank canvas on which you can draw and type. On each page you can also insert digital stickers, import pictures from your iPad’s camera roll, and record your voice. Tap the book icon in the lower-left corner of the canvas to add a new page to your book.
Stories created through My Story can be shared through a variety of channels including email, Facebook, Twitter, and Google Drive. To share stories you have to answer a math problem. Solving the math problem before sharing is a step intended to make it difficult for young writers to accidentally share their books.
