Story Creator
https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/story-creator/id545369477?mt=8#
Story Creator is an iOS app for digital storytelling that I found out about from David Kapuler.  This app allows users to create interactive books that contain: audio, video, text, and images. It helps students learn how to read by highlighting text as it is read. FREE from the Apps Store.

Caveat from iPad Apps for Schools blog:   My only complaint about Story Creator is that in order to share your stories you either have to share them on Facebook or create a Story Creator account to share them with others via email. If you share them via email your recipient needs to have Story Creator on his or her iPad in order to play your story.
