New app invites families to capture their own life stories for future generations

Capture the anecdotes of family and friends is no longer a tall order (no matter how tall the tales themselves may be), thanks to the new “Record Their Stories” iPhone app, which launches on December 11, 2011.

With a built-in edit suite and more than a 100 scrollable questions to help keep conversation flowing, family and friends can create very special recordings of their loved ones any time, any where they get together. What’s more, the application is so straightforward, and naturally appeals to little ones’ inquisitive nature - it really is child’s play to use!

Utilizing the phone’s built-in audio recording capabilities once captured life stories can be edited within the application itself and kept forever on either the user’s phone or computer.

Uniquely, there’s also the option to turn the recordings into a special gift by uploading them to the Record Their Stories website, . From here the team work their magic (acquired during more than 30 years in radio production) to produce a polished, professionally mixed version of the recording, complete with music and sound effects to really bring it to life. The finished product is then returned to either the story capturer or teller on a gift-wrapped CD ready to be listened to again and again.

Neil Cowling, co-creator of Record Their Stories, commented, “For the first part of my life I had the privilege of knowing my Grandpa. Born in the year that the Titanic sank, he saw the world change in ways I can’t imagine, as his family flourished over four generations. His stories were brilliant but I didn’t have an easy means to capture them, and now it’s too late.

“Today most of us carry a recording device with us everywhere we go - a mobile phone. I wanted to utilize that tool to the very best of its story capturing abilities, allowing people to gather their own family anecdotes in a way that’s effective, easy and fun”.

Lost for Words?
Record Their Stories comes with over 100 suggested questions covering a whole host of topics, which users can then scroll through and read on their phone during recording, much like a TV autocue. The app also allows users to email their own personalized script to be printed out on a home or office computer if they prefer.

Easy Edit
The app provides a very simple and user-friendly editing device which allows users to stop, start, join and trim their conversations with the help of a reel-to-reel tape recorder simulation. The optional professional editing service from the Record Their Stories team is even easier to use as everything is done for you with additional professional touches to create a more polished result.
Neil Cowling concludes, “We will all love, regret, laugh and celebrate, so from the hilarious to the heartbreaking, the once-in-a-lifetime to the everyday, each story is extraordinary and should be treasured for as long as we are able”.

The Record Their Stories iPhone app is available for an introductory price of .99 and will be available to download from the 11th of December. Professionally produced and tailored CDs from the RTS team start at $160 per recording. Please visit website for more info
