Recording Audio Apps

Opinion will allow you to record, edit and publish online for free! To record simply open the app and tap the big red button at the top of the screen.

When you're finished talking, tap the recording button again to stop the recording. You can chop your recording into smaller pieces by tapping on your recording then tapping the scissors icon to cut your recording. Opinion also shares to iMessage, Dropbox, Google Drive, and e-mail. You are also able to Import audio from your local iTunes music library, or Dropbox, iCloud, and Google Drive. will ask you to create an account, but you can use it without. Creating an account will allow you to publish your recordings on the StoryCorps website. The app includes sets of questions that you can use in your interview. 
The question sets are varied depending upon the type of interview you want to conduct. You can swipe through the questions to help you keep the interview on track. Completed recordings can be saved on your device and or shared with the StoryCorps community.

The Opinion app would provide students a quick way to create simple recordings. Suggestions for multiple ways for use in the classroom could include: story reading (students reading a page at a time), interview students in a classroom, book reviews, recap a story....and the list goes on. will take a little more time for students to set-up but great use of documenting interviews involving two or more people. Being able to see the questions while they record should help students keep their interviews concise and on track. You can find more information about on their website:
