I haven’t spent much time listening to StoryCorps, but what I’ve heard has really impressed me, like the Minneapolis story about a woman who befriends her son’s murderer or the North Carolina story about a man who volunteers to attend college with a boy from his church who is a quadriplegic . This morning, I discovered that StoryCorps recently came out with an app. Cool!

Here’s the description:

The StoryCorps app—a free mobile application—seamlessly walks users through an interview by providing all the necessary tools for a wonderful experience. You will receive help preparing questions, finding the right environment for your conversation, recording a high-quality interview on your mobile device, sharing the finished product with friends and family, and uploading your conversation to the website.

I love this idea of giving people a tool for listening to others’ stories. Not only does the app provide the platform, but it also educates the user on how to listen to and interview others. I’m looking forward to trying it.
