Creative kids who love stories and have already experienced Scribble by Fingerprint will love the new Scribble Press Deluxe, a new version of a popular app that has helped kids write over three million books since it was launched three years ago. Having reviewed Scribble Press last fall (Scribble by Fingerprint Makes Creative Storytelling Easy for Ages 6-8), it’s great to see the evolution of this educational app that continues to allow early elementary ages to tell their stories through multimedia tools that provide the creative freedom to share stories in their own way.
I loved Scribble Press before but Scribble Press Deluxe integrates new features that provide the creative freedom to write, illustrate, incorporate video, photos, and voice recording for unlimited storytelling potential. Here’s a closer look at the 7 reasons why your child will love Scribble Press Deluxe.
7 Reasons to Love the New Scribble Press Deluxe App
1. Easy to Navigate Interface
Despite added features, the Scribble Press Deluxe interface uses an icon-based interface that young users will find easy to navigate. The icons assist less confident readers navigate the app while building their confidence as writers.
2. New Story Starters
Story starters make it easy for kids to customize their story any of the 30 fill in the blank books to help them begin writing faster than ever. There’s no shortage of fun content since themed books range from silly to awe-inspiring.
3. Create Your Own Story
While Story Starters can be a great way for hesitant writers to get started, the blank page feature serves as a way that kids can tell their story in their own way. From writing the text and doing their own illustrations by using a combination of stickers and photos, the blank page is the perfect way for kids to express themselves by telling their stories in their own way.
4. Photos Help Kids Tell More Personalized Stories
Stories that draw on personal experience are always the easiest to write. Scribble Press Deluxe allows kids to take photos of things they want to tell stories about, cut out the shape, and add it to their story.
Since every child loves taking a selfie, Scribble Press Deluxe puts kids in the story. Special photo stickers allow them to incorporate their face into the stickers to customize the characters in their stories or add photos they take themselves.
5. Multimedia Elements and More Stickers
Besides photos, kids can add music and their voice to any story. All they have to do is hit record! There are more than 300 stickers, characters, backgrounds, stamps, and drawing tools included for kids to add to their stories to customize the illustrations that go with their writing.
6. Ability to Share Stories as Videos
Great stories deserve to be shared and Scribble Press Deluxe allows parents to export their kids’ favorite stories as short videos to share them with friends and family members. Simply tap through the app to export the video as a PDF or video.
An email will be sent to the recipient either with the PDF attachment or a link to view the video online.
This can serve as a special keepsake after a visit with relatives, a way a child can write their own thank you not for a gift, or just show off their creativity!
7. Affordably Priced
Priced at $4.99 and available for iOS and Android devices, Scribble Press Deluxe is a one time purchase that can be enjoyed for years.
I love that Scribble Press Deluxe remains easy to use, kid friendly, and promotes creativity and open ended storytelling among an age group who is working towards developing confidence in their writing abilities. With no limits on creativity, children are limited only by their imagination making Scribble Press Deluxe a must-have app for parents of kindergarten through third graders that grows with your child because it supports beginning and more independent readers. Scribble Press Deluxe ($4.99) is available for iOS devices via iTunes or Android through Google Play.
