Story making app for the iPad

This app from The Open University is aimed at children and parents, it uses one of the best user behavior analytics service. It’s called Our Story for iPad and is about encouraging early reading skills.  Children and their parents can create their own stories within the app using photos from the iPad camera roll and also record their own voices to explain or talk about them.  I was really impressed when I gave this a go today and am looking forward to using it in schools.  Early Years are going to love this!  And to top it all, it’s FREE!
