Last spring, I worked with Demetri Miller to create Silly Story Maker, an adaptation of an educational, sentence making soundboard for the iPad. With beautiful graphics and multiple voices to choose from, Silly Story Maker allows you to create simple sentences by combining thirty basic words and phrases.

Since the app is designed for kids, we wanted it to be highly responsive. The characters bounce as the app speaks their names and the entire interface is colorful, tactile and interactive. Demetri and I built the entire app using Apple’s standard audio APIs and Core Animation, which made this interactivity easy.

A few weeks after it’s release, Silly Story Maker was the #2 education app in Australia!
