How I Use It
This app is great for elementary students, and I've used it with 2nd grade students for sharing their writing. The app is easy for students to use, and easy for students to use even with the free version. The record feature works really well, and I love that you can share both an image or a movie to the camera roll, even with the free version! This is one thing that I look forward to when choosing apps for my students because it makes it so much easier to share out.
My Take
We have used the free version, which works well as long as you have one child working at a time. We have had students who have gone through and written all of their work, and then went to record their voices to find out that they weren't able to because there was already another project in the app that was started. It would be nice to prevent the user from starting a prompt with the writing before deleting out the previous versions. This would make it easier for students to not have to copy and paste their work into another piece or having to start all over. The paid version of this app would be great to use if schools have the budget for it!
