This story-recording app is fun and easy to use, but doesn't offer much that you can't do on your own. Creating recordings of far away loved ones reading well-loved stories is a great way to keep a connection alive for little ones. But Just One More Story! doesn't do a whole lot extra to help facilitate that. There aren't many stories available in the Just One More Story! library: At the time of this review there were 19. But, the stories they do have are highly recognizable titles that kids are quite likely to know. Recordings are audio files only, meant to be paired with a kid reading along with a hard copy of the book. That's great if you already own the book but doesn't work as well if you don't. And other than some background music and a tone to tell kids when to turn the page, there's nothing special about the audio recordings. It would be just as easy to use your device's recording feature to make a video or audio recording. Also, once you purchase a title and send off your recording, you can't go back to access the book again without re-purchasing it. On the other hand, because the recording you send is a standard mp3 file, it's yours forever to use in whatever music playing app you prefer to use. If you happen to own one of the books in the Just One More Story! library, it may be fun to try purchasing the app's recording capability. But don’t expect many bells and whistles.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
