To create your story: * Write some text. * Illustrate by drawing on the screen, taking a photograph of something you see, or drawing on paper and then photographing the paper, or attaching photos from your album. * Sounds can be recorded for telling your story or as sound effects. * Layout the elements of your story (text boxes, images, and sound clips) freely by dragging them or pinching to resize. * Add, reorder, or delete pages from your book. Your story is always saved in your iPhone. The application includes four public domain children's books that you can rewrite and rearrange into your own new story.
