About StoryCorps

Founded in 2003, the nonprofit organization StoryCorps, based in Brooklyn, New York gives people the chance to record conversations about their lives, to pass wisdom from one generation to the next, and to leave a legacy for the future.

Recording an interview couldn’t be easier: You invite a loved one, or anyone else you choose, to make time for a conversation. The StoryCorps app explains the interview process, offers tips on how to find a quiet recording space, and provides questions and prompts to carry you through the conversation. Press “record,” and share in a conversation you’ll never forget. With one tap, your recording will be uploaded to the American Folklife Center at the United States Library of Congress. Interviews recorded using the app can be shared with family, friends, and others online.

You can also search and listen to conversations in our collection from inside the app.

Preserving your stories for you and for future generations is important to us. If you need help using the app, have technical issues, or want to make a suggestion, write us at or visit We love to hear from you!

Very special thanks to TED and the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation.

What's New

We're very happy to release version 3.0 of the StoryCorps app! This version features a new and improved look and feel, push notifications and several important bug fixes.

Update: This version fixes the issue of interviews "disappearing" from the My Interviews screen when iOS reallocates its Local Storage memory. While the interviews were still available on the device in this case, it appeared to the user as though they had been lost. Thanks to everyone who reported this bug and helped us fix it. Because of you the app is better than ever.

We have a lot of improvements coming your way in 2017! Got ideas or experiencing problems? We'd love to hear from you at

Keep listening and asking great questions,

The StoryCorps App Team
