About this app

Since 2003, StoryCorps has been working to preserve and share humanity’s stories in order to build connections between people and create a more just and compassionate world.

From one device, StoryCorps' new app conveniently allows users to prepare for—and record—a high-quality interview, passing wisdom from one generation to the next and leaving a legacy for the future. It also seamlessly enables users to explore StoryCorps’ rich content, curate personalized interview collections, and easily share StoryCorps content to social media.

With the StoryCorps App, everything you love about StoryCorps is tailored to fit in the palm of your hands. Whether it is searching through our collection or being guided through the interview experience from start to finish, our app is designed to enable you to have the StoryCorps experience seamlessly.

Listen, honor, and share with the StoryCorps App.

Major support for the StoryCorps App made possible by Jane Phillips Donaldson & William H. Donaldson.

if you try to use another app or lock your phone during the recording, it stops recording after a few brief minutes. since the app only has one purpose of recording audio, I don't think you should have to worry about locking your phone or navigating elsewhere, I lost many minutes of my interviews this way. definitely would suggest just using the standard audio recorder that comes with your phone

It was awful!! It let me create an account but it wouldn't go past the "Accept the terms of use & privacy policy page" I tried uninstalling the app multiple times but that didnt change anything. Normally on this kind of page on other apps it will have a checkbox to accept the terms AND a button to click to continue to the next screen. This app doesnt have a continue button. This app needs to be temporarily taken off the playstore and fixed so that it will allow you to accept the terms!

Hi Gabriel! We're so sorry for this difficulty. Reviews like yours helped us discover a bug in the latest version of the app that seems to only impact certain devices. We're working on a fix, but in the meantime if you email our support team at contactus@storycorps.org we can help you with a workaround for this issue. Thank you!

Extremely inconsistent. Uploading photos, changing privacy, and recording sometimes don't even work. Better off using the built-in recorder.
