Imagistory – An App for Narrating Picture Books

Screen Shot 2014-09-29 at 10.09.11 AM Imagistory is a neat iPad app on which children can narrate picture books. The app provides children with a wordless picture books. Children are free to record themselves telling a story about the pictures in the books. Children can record and re-record stories as often as they like.

Imagistory is easy to use. To get started open the app and select one of the free picture books (additional picture books are available through in-app purchases). When you’re ready to record allow the app to access your iPad’s camera and microphone. The app asks for camera access so that you can take a picture to use as your author profile. As soon as you open the book the app is recording your voice. As you swipe through the pages the recording continues. At the end of the book you can save play the story back, save the story, or record a new version of your story.

Imagistory could be a good app for young students to use to practice developing the plotline of a story.
