30hands Pro

30hands Pro is a fun storytelling app that allows users to creatively makeup digital stories, presentations or explain a concept. Dragging and organizing photos, videos clips or drawing into the order of the story, users can also record audios over each image. Easy editing allows users to better enhance their masterpieces. The videos can be published or uploaded to share with many others.

This would be a good mobile app for elementary kids who struggles with writing, spelling or grammar that may prevent them from expressing their ideas. Instead of asking students to hand write a weekly journal, the teacher can ask them to use this app to make a digital story to share something interesting that happened over their week and share with the class.
