Record your Family Stories using Re-Collections for iPad

February 26, 2015 in Lifestyle (E)

[] Nelson, New Zealand - Scruff Monkey Productions today is proud to announce the release and immediate availability of Re-Collections 1.0.0 for iPad. They say, "Every picture tells a story." Well, why not get your pictures to tell Your story. "Re-Collections" for iPad captures those moments for you, creating lasting memories for everyone to enjoy.

Re-Collections enables you to capture the first reactions and emotions conveyed when someone first sees a photo. There's no need to repeatedly hit the "record" button to start and stop recording for each photo - the "continuous audio" recording feature cuts and tags the audio for you, saving each photo's audio clip individually, but playable as a continuous recording in your slideshow.

* Make your family history come to life by adding audio and text to your photos
* Capture those precious first reactions and memories using "continuous" audio recording; it keeps recording as you swipe from picture to picture
* Create a slideshow with audio playback connecting several or all of your photos
* Share photos, audio and text notes with others using email, Facebook, Twitter, Weibo and other social media
* Import your photos from Dropbox, your Photo Library or use the inbuilt camera

You can also use the "Re-Collections" app to add audio and text notes to any images - so make a presentation for the office, for your team or group, or anything else.

The Story Behind the App
"After discovering a satchel of old photos at my father's house, I borrowed them and scanned them in to my computer." explained Alan Stenhouse, CEO of Scruff Monkey Productions. "A couple of years later my Dad came for a visit, so I asked him if he'd go through the photos with me and tell me something about each one. As we were doing this, I realised the need for an easy-to-use app that would allow making text notes, so that afternoon I quickly created a prototype. The next day, as we continued browsing through the photos, I typed in some of the details that Dad described."

"But there was something missing. As I was typing away, I realised that the words I wrote only told a fraction of the story. The REAL story was in my Dad's voice, his emotion, his laughter, and the journeys that came flooding back as he described these wonderful snapshots of his parents, his grandparents, his childhood adventures in Scotland and around the world."

"I realised that I wanted to be able to capture these 'first moments' of seeing a photo - when the emotion is right there with you. Thus I came up with the idea of 'continuous recording' - no action is required to keep recording for each photo, so there would be no interruption of the viewer's connection to the photo. Sadly my Dad is no longer around to share his memories with me and my family. Just make sure you don't lose the chance to record your family's stories." Re-Collections for iOS - preserving the past for the future. It's that simple.
