Videolicious - Free Voice Narrated Video Slideshow App

Videolicious is a free (iTunes link) universal iOS app which allows users to easily create voice-narrated photo and video slideshows. The app walks users through a simple step-by-step process beginning with selecting photos or video clips, recording narration through the front video camera, and finishing with the selection of a background music track.  The finished video shows the first and last couple seconds of the video narration, and then transitions to all the photos and video clips (no audio from imported video clips) which are fit automatically into the narration length.  Unlike some other photo narration apps, the video is saved to the device camera roll for easy transfer to a computer. Some users don't like the fact that you can't directly narrate to specific photos, as you can't see them when you're narrating. What the app lacks in functionality it more than makes up for in ease of use and efficiency! A great tool for students of all ages!

Voicecards Are Not Flashcards - iPad/iPod App for Inclusive Classrooms

Voicecards Are Not Flashcards ($0.99, iTunes universal iPad/iPod/iPhone app, Free lite version available) is remarkably different from most other flashcard apps in that users can both create and use flashcards auditorily! Quick and easy to create for students of all ages as well as a searchable online database of pre-made question sets, this app is a MUST for the inclusive, UDL classroom!
