Recently I found another FREE app that is good for kids keeping journals, make their own books. It is called StoryKit. I think this one would also be a good app to keep travel journels.
What to do with this app:
You can record your journey, or create a story. You can create the story in 4 ways:
- Pictures: either take a photo of your own (using iPhone would make it so easy to load the picture into the app), or select one from your picture library.
- Record a sound to go with the page, either a narration of your own, or a sound effect you recorded somewhere that fits the content of the page.
- Paint a picture: you get to choose color and the thickness of the lines.
- Writing the story by typing in the words.
You can move and resize the picture, text box, and your own drawing to fit everything nicely on one page. You can create as many pages as you want to.
Once a book is finished, you can choose to keep it local in your app for yourself to read; or you can share the book with friends and family via email. Once you click share, you will be asked to enter an email address where you want the book be sent to. The person who receives the email will see a link that leads to your book. The sound will be lost during the sharing process, but everything else – picture, drawing, and text will be retained.
This is an app that fosters kids’ creativity. It can be a good tool to help the kids keep a vacation journey. It can be also a good app for kids to practice writing, drawing, singing, … to write their own books. You can even write a book together with your child.
StoryKit is available for iPhone, iPod and iPAD. It is free on App Store.
