About this app

StoryCorps’ mission is to preserve and share humanity’s stories in order to build connections between people and create a more just and compassionate world. We are working to create of a culture of listening and understanding.

About StoryCorps
Founded in 2003, the nonprofit organization StoryCorps, based in Brooklyn, New York gives people the chance to record conversations about their lives, to pass wisdom from one generation to the next, and to leave a legacy for the future.

Recording an interview couldn’t be easier: You invite a loved one, or anyone else you choose, to make time for a conversation. The StoryCorps app explains the interview process, offers tips on how to find a quiet recording space, and provides questions and prompts to carry you through the conversation. Press “record,” and share in a conversation you’ll never forget. With one tap, your recording will be uploaded to the American Folklife Center at the United States Library of Congress. Interviews recorded using the app can be shared with family, friends, and others online.

You can also search and listen to conversations in our collection from inside the app.

Preserving your stories for you and for future generations is important to us. If you need help using the app, have technical issues, or want to make a suggestion, write us at or visit We love to hear from you!

Very special thanks to TED and the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation.

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

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

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 we can help you with a workaround for this issue. Thank you!
