Imagistory is an app that allows your little one to become the storyteller by letting them record their voice as it presents a set of illustrations. Each set is a story that range from different themes, both fantasy and day-to-day. It starts with a card that let’s you choose your pen name (‘as imagined by:’) followed by a snapshot, effectively becoming the ‘front cover’ of the story.

From here it starts recording and you wipe left to go through to the next image. Afterwards the story automatically saves. You can listen back to any of the stories you have created as well as look at some sample stories to give you a bit of inspiration.

It’s really easy to use and there’s even a parents and teachers section which lets you favourite or share each story. There’s a guide that helps give you advice on how to get the most out of the app.

There are seven stories, but only two are available as the others must be purchased. There’s also a bundle edition for educators which offers the whole app for a reduced price.

Verdict

This is a great app that encourages language skills, builds creativity and in a way that is fun for both child and parent. A brilliant, alternative way to spend story time!
