Without further complications, Story Press, allows you to dictate your memories or to document what interests you most to this device, and then share them online.
iPad app records your memories (or your grandma’s) /
In an effort to maintain the oral tradition (on its way to extinction thanks to the new forms of communication), the medical appliance designer Mike Davis, created an app that allows people to easily dictate their memories —or whatever they want—to a machine, and this will organise them into chapters and archive them.
Story Press was born because one day Davis’ grandmother asked him if she could record something on her iPad. “She was 84 and had many stories to tell”, Mike says. It was then that he realised that the programs to record —of which there are many— are too complex for a senior to use.
The app that Davis created can be used with pre-uploaded questions or in “spoken” mode, which allows the user to divide the story in chapters and to share it online. Ohio is using it to document its people, and the Norwegian Children’s Museum is interested in using it. In brief, Story Press is full of possibilities; you can use it as a diary or as a format to document what interests you the most. Thus maintaining the oral tradition, which has without a doubt, its own magic.Tagged: apps, iPad apps, technology and everyday life, memory
