Talk'n Photos is a simple to navigate talking photo album. Completely customizable, this app allows you to add text and voice recording to album covers as well as each entry (picture) within an album. Photos or symbols may be uploaded from your camera, taken with your iPad/iTouch/iPhone or downloaded from a large number of free clip art/photo art web sites. Each photo appears in a 2x2 inch representation with unlimited albums and pages. Editing allows you to move, rotate, scale and re-sequence photos. Users create grids of three pictures horizontally and unlimited choices vertically.

For example, an album cover may consist of an empty plate and verbal cue such as “I’m hungry”. Once activated, album contents could include photos of favorite food items. Customized recordings allow the user to record single words or entire phrases to communicate the desired message. Simple navigation once inside the album consists of an arrow leading back to the initial album covers. This feature allows for easy navigation and prevents the user from becoming lost or confused by multiple interconnecting pages. Editing may be locked in order to prevent unwanted changes to programming. Your password, should you set one, will be emailed to the address of your choice.

This is a wonderful app and could be used in many ways for students to create content in subject areas. As far as I can see, though, it lacks a way to share work out via email or as a video.

Not bad

Good idea but would be perfect if you could actually email the finished photo projects to another person. Not that great if I have to keep them on my iPad.

Not working

When I turn the editing button on it does not give me any options below to add password or edit. Also, the app support link is not working.
