#AppMondayTAS - Pictello

Recently, I was asked at a training, about a good app for social stories.  I didn't have an answer at that time, but now I do.  Strangely enough I heard about it later that day and it is a great app from AssistiveWare (makers of Proloquo2Go) - Pictello.

Pictello is a very full featured app, that allows for creation as well as consumption.  Pictello allows you to create stories using pictures from your iOS device.  The app includes text to speech, but also allows you to record your voice if you want.  You can download more voices (British & American) for free through the options menu.

There are a ton of options for creating stories including top & bottom labels, and it can read both, one or none, different voices, and other options.  The interface is easy to use, and includes a wizard mode to help you create stories.  One very useful feature is the ability to share stories between devices.  By creating a free account you can upload and share the stories with other Pictello users.  You do need to use a unique code to share the stories.

PIctello is $14.99 at this time, but I have 1 free code to giveaway this week.  As always you can enter up to 3 times, using the following methods:
