Overview

MyStoryMyLife is a digital diary app designed for preteens and teens by a ten-year-old girl from Denver. The system is designed to give kids a way to document their lives without oversharing on social media. It includes features that will encourage creativity and self-expression, and best of all, it’s very private.

Features include:

  • Easy password protection for privacy
  • Create text diary entries
  • Create doodles and drawings
  • Add photos from your device
  • Easy access to older entries

Quality

MyStoryMyLife is a simple and effective app that does exactly what it sets out to do-give tweens and teens a private place to explore thoughts and feelings. The app includes plenty of avenues for self-expression, including text, drawing and photos. The calendar interface makes it easy to revisit special moments in time.

Education

This app is not intended to be educational.

Entertainment

At times, there is nothing more valuable to young people than being allowed to express themselves. This digital diary affords just the right amount of privacy to be considered a “safe” way to explore feelings or tell secret thoughts. Nearly all young people go through phases where they want to journal or keep track of their world in a diary, and this app is the perfect modern equivalent, plus there’s no need to worry about a sibling finding it and reading it.  Too often, children in this age group turn to social media to share their lives, and that promotes comparisons and sometimes even bullying. With MyStoryMyLife, kids will find an appropriate outlet for their self-expression that is safe and secure.

Value

MyStoryMyLife costs ninety-nine cents on the App Store, which is a very small price to pay for the positive contribution the app could make to your child’s life. It’s much less expensive than even plain notebook and pencil, and a whole lot more engaging, since it is high-tech.

Child Friendliness

This app is very child-friendly.
