Children’s iPad App, Scribble Press

Reviewed by Susan Stephenson,

Scribble Press is a digital storytelling app from developer, Fingerprint.

From the developer:

Designed for the classroom and at home, Scribble Press is a creativity platform for children to imagine, write, illustrate, and share their own stories. NEW, Powerhouse features include video export, audio recording, music, 300 new drawing tools, backgrounds, and stickers to inspire creativity and 30 fill-in-the-blank story starters ranging from the silly to the sublime.

This ALL-NEW version of the app includes new, powerhouse features such as:
all-new story starters, stickers and backgrounds
Start with one of our book templates, or use a BLANK book
Add music to your story
Take, add, and cut-out photos
Record your own voice
“Put Yourself in the Story” photo feature

What I liked:

There’s good attention to detail in this app. I liked the range of colours in the drawing tool, so kids can draw their own pictures. The variety in stickers and backgrounds will certainly appeal to kids too. Themes range from fairy tale to pets, dinosaurs to superheroes. Being able to add your own photo, in app via the camera, is another appealing feature.

For children who benefit from scaffolding, the suggested templates are well thought out, with kids needing to supply one or two words to make a story segment their own.

Where do I get it?

I’ll be adding this app to my list of iPad apps that kids can create with, and my list of tools that involve kids in digital storytelling.
