StoryCorps Develops a Free App That Lets People Record, Share & Preserve the Stories of Their Lives


StoryCorps (previously), the wonderful oral history project that provides recording booths for people to tell their own life stories and make them available to the public through NPR broadcasts, animated videos, and books, has now developed a free app that makes the recording, sharing, and preserving process available to anyone with a smartphone.

These powerful stories illustrate our shared humanity and show how much more we share in common than divides us. StoryCorps interviews have traditionally been recorded in StoryCorps booths in the United States with the assistance of StoryCorps facilitators. With the introduction of this app, StoryCorps interviews can now be recorded anywhere, anytime.

The StoryCorps app is available through iTunes and Google Play.
