Everyone’s a story teller, especially our children!

Ash is an architect by profession and mother to two young children. When she first heard about the Aroundsound app she was interested to discover whether sound recording would allow her to interact with her children and being able to capture their time together, hands-free with the screen off.

She downloaded Aroundsound and started experimenting. She found the simplicity of the app appealing and especially how easy it was to start recording without fumbling with her device and stepping out of the moment.

She quickly became a convert and has used the app to record many times together with her children. One particularly special moment was when she was listening to a piece of classical music with her daughter, Zara.

When she listens to classical music, Zara goes into her own dream world, and Ash saw this as a good opportunity to capture what Zara was thinking about the music. She quickly grabbed her phone, started recording and asked Zara what the music made her think about.

Ash was able to record her daughter telling a beautiful story with the music playing quietly in the background. A serendipitous moment that she has later been able to replay, share with family and friends, but most importantly treasure forever.

Aroundsound lets you capture those everyday moments which then turn out to be marvelous moments that are saved forever.

It’s really easy to get started recording and create a soundtrack with your children. Just download Aroundsound here for iPhone or download Aroundsound here for Android, and when you’re in that special place, hit the big red record button. You can rename and trim when you’re done and create your own collections, adding any of your recordings, then share easily with loved ones. The don’t need to have the app to listen, but if they do they can comment on collections and be notified any time you add a new story!
