Write About This Free http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/write-about-this-free/id601382666?mt=8
Write About This was created by a 4th grade teacher. The easy-to-use app offers a variety of visual images along with writing prompts. A Write About publishing tool is also included in the app allowing students to type their journal entry and record audio. The entry can be saved within the app or exported to the camera roll. Only one Write About entry can be saved and only part of the images and prompts database is available from within the free version. A full version of the app is available in the App Store (currently $3.99). In addition, more than one custom prompt can be created and saved.
