It is fundamental to most school activities, it can also open up new worlds and give access to the wealth of human knowledge.

I'm excited! I work with an elementary special needs student with physical challenges. I have been looking for an app for him to be able to retell events and develop stories from photos using an audio recording. This app has large icons/buttons and offers re-recording if he makes a mistake. It also has several sharing options; My only wish would be that he could email his stories (with audio) directly to his familymembers that do not have ipads (person receiving has to have Our Story on their ipad to open). Great app!
While at first I thought this was a terrific app, I am now sure I will never use it again. I downloaded it to make a story with my ESL students. Finally we were ready to record. It went very smoothly. Then the next day I went to make finishing touches on the written portion, the recordings but one were all gone. I cannot find any way to get it back. I have no idea what happened. I will NOT use this app again. The technology is not that intuitive and am sure I can get a similar product using a different program. I would not recommend using it, for fear that you will lose all of your work.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
