Hallelujah! App updates fixed the bugs

Update: with the newest release 3.2.0 out, I had my students update their apps and run some peer to peer interviews in class - looks like the major bugs are gone! All our interviews uploaded and there were no mysterious disappearances or struggles. UI is much nicer now too! Phew.


I recently used the app to run The Great Thanksgiving Listen project with my 10th grade history students. Each of them recorded a grandparent or adult in their lives using the app, and then we uploaded them all with a special classroom keyword.

The app functionality was fairly straight forward and the process of recording/uploading for all 45 of my students was 95% great with a few exceptions- some of the interviews disappeared, some of them wouldn't upload to the site, etc. I think they are in process of fixing the bugs soon!

Once we uploaded the interviews, my students did all of the photos, keywording and description writing through the website version of the app on the StoryCorps Archive. Much easier than typing on phones and the interface was more comprehensive.

This is a great curriculum for history and social studies classrooms and I'm so glad I found out about it!

Improved with more questions and stories to hear

I first used this app in the fall. I recorded two interviews and got the hang of it. I'm going to use it at my family reunion. It's definitely much improved. There are new questions added and it seems faster moving from one step to the next. I also found out I can listen to some Storycorps stories that are like what I hear on NPR. I find something new whenever I open up this app!

Be sure to upload your interviews!

The app is great for doing oral histories. It provides suggested questions as well as allows you to propose your own. The app also let’s you order the questions and record the audio for the interview.

However the app does not backup your interviews - so if you do a factory reset without uploading your interviews to the archives. You will lose them. I found this out the hard way.

My wife and I have been using the app for the last two years to record annual reflections on our relationship. I had saved the interviews on my phone, but had trouble uploading them to the archive. Well this year I had to do a factory reset on my phone and lost all of our interviews. So upload your interviews!
