APP ALERT: Little Story Creator

We have been blessed with the opportunity to use the iPads in the classroom for the summer (no other teacher was given that option!), so I have been trying to integrate the iPads into both my ELA and math instruction.

One app that we've been using in ELA is an app called Little Story Creator. It's similar to the Book Creator app that I blogged about here back in February but it's FREE and serves many of the same functions that Book Creator does.

Little Story Creator allows users to create collages, arrange photos, or get creative with videos, text, borders, stickers, videos, audio, drawings and more.

It has a quite a few features but the ones I particularly like is that you can import photos from your photo library, Dropbox, Facebook or Picasa. You can also add 30-second videos to each page. The app allows support for an unlimited number of pages and to top it off, stories can be shared via email.

It's simple interface is very user-friendly and my students were able to pick up the app and learn its functions with only a few days of practice.

The only con that I can determine at this point? Unlike Book Creator, the stories cannot be shared or read through the iBook app. I'm hoping that with future updates this function will be added.

If you're looking for a great storytelling app that's free and function, check out Little Story Creator!
