Story Creator – Create Your Own Narrated Picture Books on Your iPad

story_creator Last week I attended one of Kathy Schrock’s excellent presentations about teaching with iPads. I quickly filled up five pages in a Penultimate notebook while listening to Kathy. One of the apps that she shared that was new to me was Story Creator. Story Creator is a free iPad app that makes it easy to create narrated picture books on your iPad.

To create a narrated picture book on Story Creator start by inserting a picture as your book’s cover. To create a page just tap the “+” icon and import a picture, draw a picture, type some text, or do all three. After completing one or all three of those previous actions tap the microphone icon to record your narration. After making your recording you can quickly adjust it so that each word of text is highlighted to match the timing of your narration.

My only complaint about Story Creator is that in order to share your stories you either have to share them on Facebook or create a Story Creator account to share them with others via email. If you share them via email your recipient needs to have Story Creator on his or her iPad in order to play your story.
