My Pictures Talk helps you catalog, share, remember, and can teach skills to those with autism or developmental delays. It also allows you to document trips, adventures, class trips or create your own stories. Use your imagination! We allow you to bring your photos to life with text and audio. You can create talking photo albums, or use as a teaching tool to help promote wanted behaviors.
Take videos on the fly with an iPhone 3GS or iPhone 4, or load videos onto your device thru iTunes. It can now serve as a way to make your own social stories utilizing video modeling. No videos are included, but make it personal and create your own. Video modeling has been proven to be a useful tool to help children with autism learn social skills.
My Pictures Talk is the first app that allows you to create your own social stories using your own personal videos.
Pictures, stories, and videos can be emailed and posted to Facebook.
► Recording video on the fly supported on iPhone 3GS and 4, and the iPod Touch 4th generation.
► Only the iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPod touch 4th generation(the one with cameras), and the iPad can load videos thru iTunes syncing. This is a limitation of the iOS SDK. Our apologies.
► Be sure you have an iPhone or the 32/64 GB versions of the late 2009 model iPod Touch or later to record audio. If you have the iPod Touch 2G or 8GB late 2009 model you will need to purchase a 3rd party microphone(available from Apple or Amazon.com, etc.)

Ratings and Reviews
Innovative idea with lots of applications and potential
My oldest daugther gave this app MANY thumbs ups. It took us a little while to understand the menus and navigation, but once we got the hang of it we really enjoyed associating our pictures with audio captions, and then playing them back to listen to our voices. It reminded me of when I used to play a tape recorder when I was younger, and record and re-record, just amused by the sound of my voice. I'll be eager to see how the functionality develops in future versions. What I like most is that the entire family can have fun with this app - together.
Great app for quickly making videos for video modeling
I first heard about this app from an iPad workshop and was really excited to try it for video modeling. I used it this morning to make a video for a student and it took me less than hour to record, choose, edit, narrate, and sequence the video clips on my iPad. When I initially tried to watch the 2 min video after I added it to the story, the app crashed. I found it was helpful to cut the long video into short 18 second clips. That took care of the crashing problem and allowed me to segment the task into small steps for my student to learn the routine or skill. Great app!
I happened to use My Pictures Talk with a 4th grade group of students with varying needs. With little guidance they were able to apply text and voice recordings to photographs for an interactive newspaper. The possibilities are endless! It may not have tons of bells and whistles but it can model behaviors, tell stories and give a voice to all students. Applicable2U thinks it's worth the download and can apply to you too!!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
