"Great! This app is going to be a great tool in my special ed class."
"Simple and Amazing App! It can't get any simpler than this. You are given an empty template and allowed to do whatever you can think of. This will become a 'staple' app in the collection of anyone who has kids, especially special needs ones. I absolutely love the simplicity. Perfect. I can create social stories for my son, make a talking photo album that he can revisit time and time again, and even create books out of his most favorite stories. Also great is that you can share stories. Highly recommend!"

Ratings and Reviews
Great idea, poor execution
This idea behind this app is perfect for special needs kids to create personalized social stories starring them and others in their life. However, this app has many issues with my iPad2. I am unable to edit the title page picture or text after creation of the book, I am unable to delete pages (despite the picture in the App Store), and the text boxes allow you to type more than can be displayed on the title or pages. I have painfully managed to get around these issues because the app costs so much, but it could benefit from a much needed update.
This is a wonderful app. I had trouble with it because I sync my child's iPad to mine at this time, which does not work so could not use. The developer was great, very responsive and helpful. I think it is a great app and would give it 5 stars if it were not for that issue. As long as you only use it on one iPad, and don't try to sync to another iPad I think it would be well worth buying as it allows you to easily use your own pictures in making up stories and seemed more intuitively user friendly than other similar apps. And it is really pretty! Easier to use than other apps like it, too. Just be aware that it is not for the parent who manages their child's iPad by syncing to their own at this time, though with luck the developer might make that work in the future. I would recommend it as a really nice app.
Great teaching pratice!
As a special education teacher and a parent, this app is great for both my worlds. It can be used with my students and my own children. The best feature is that stories can be shared and used in a variety of settings, including community outings with bus rides. As a teacher this helps my students generalize skills faster. As a parent, it allows us to share special memories with our loved ones who couldn't be there to share them with us. We have been able to make social stories about upcoming events and use it during big transition. For example, we just went on an international flight and my daughter played and replayed the story made about going on a plane ride.
