30hands Mobile is a fun and innovative storytelling app that allows students, teachers and anyone with creativity to easily create stories or presentations based on photos, images or slides using an iPhone or iPad.

Download the app from the Apple Store here: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/30hands/id605013231?ls=1

Different from other presentation apps, 30hands Mobile focuses on the power of storytelling. Like pages in a book, photos or images are dragged around the desktop into the order of the story. Next, the teacher or student records audio over each image. Finally, the story or presentation can be published to the device’s photo area or uploaded to a 30hands collaborative learning site.
