Audio Note App

A few weeks ago someone mentioned an app called Audio Note in this group.  It is a great way for children to proofread, edit and revise their writing.  The children typed in their writing then recorded it and listened to it as much as needed before making the changes/improvements to their work.  They then did a final recording of their writing and were amazed at the improvements they had made.  They were also really excited to be able to share their work with their parents as I said I would email their work to my email then upload them to the school website.  I really wanted a purpose and authentic audience for their writing.  Unfortunately I can only get the text and not the audio once exported.  Has anyone used this successfully to export the writing AND the audio?  I'm stuck!!  Or, is there another app that is better suited?  Many thanks in advance!

    Interesting discussion, thanks everyone. Having looked at audio note indepthly I went and had a look at explain everything which I liked a lot (Thanks Innes!). I liked the way you can record over previous recordings which is the function I was after in relation to the learning intention around proofreading and editing. It's also very easy to export a video or picture to different web based applications. Using multiple pages also shows the child's process which is really important. And...  When the wireless is down you can save it to the camera roll which is handy!! I'm going to use Explain Everything on Monday and Tuesday then share the work via the school website and share it with parents on Wednesday evening as we are having a BYOD information evening as the school begins its mobile learning journey...!

    Will investigate Story Kit next.
