AUSTIN, Texas--(StoryPress announces its audio storytelling platform today, providing users with a way to turn their everyday stories into treasured audio storybooks that can be saved, shared and archived. The platform includes a tablet application where stories can be recorded, as well as a web interface where users can further personalize, share and listen to their Library, as well as others’ audio books – creating their own collection of spoken memories and events.)--
“I always loved my grandmother’s stories, and for the longest time, I searched for a way to record and save those stories in her words”
When trying to capture and preserve the stories of his grandmother, StoryPress creator Mike Davis saw the opportunity to create an intuitive storytelling platform that uses today’s technology to help transform spoken stories into collections of audio books. StoryPress prompts the creation process by walking users through the steps and customizable elements like cover imagery and title, then on to recording stories through one of two modes – interview mode, which guides storytelling via preloaded themes and questions, and dictation mode, which enables a freestyle option to develop stories. Once audio books are completed, users can upload to a personal StoryPress Library housed on the application, as well as the web interface where stories can be shared via email or social media channels, and where additional images can be added. Within the web interface, stories can also be socialized and followed within the StoryPress community, introducing an exciting way for storytellers to inspire others.
“I always loved my grandmother’s stories, and for the longest time, I searched for a way to record and save those stories in her words,” Davis said. “I recognized that there wasn’t a solution that made documenting stories an effortless endeavor, and that, likely, I wasn’t the only one who believed these stories captured something special – an authenticity that transcends time and deserves to be archived in a personalized way. That was all I needed to inspire me to create StoryPress.”
StoryPress brings unique value to anyone looking to capture spoken moments in time, whether that be autobiographical stories, an audio diary, or any other moment that is best preserved with the enduring quality of a spoken story. The easy-to-use application makes it possible for anyone, anywhere to capture and archive the experiences that make up the stories of our lives.
StoryPress is currently available in the Apple App Store, and can be downloaded onto an iPad tablet for $9.99. A Google Play version of the tablet app will be available soon.
StoryPress is the platform that allows users to turn spoken stories into digital audiobooks. The platform makes it easy for people to create and archive audio recordings in a narrative, personal and intuitive way. Through the web interface, StoryPress provides a community to publish and share completed stories, changing the way that people record personal history.
