How can we improve Tickle?

New variable called 'Recordings'

Would be great to be able to utilize the voice recorder function of the phone to add custom sounds to projects (new variable called 'recordings').

    Adding the ability to record sound and trigger those as event would be a great idea! I've wanted this all year but only now have had a chance to ask for it.

    Currently we use this function with Dash and Lego WeDO on their native apps for classroom "Robot Storytelling" Since adding this literacy / storytelling function is a big part of why I (and other educators) can integrate these bots into other units so well. The lack of it in Tickle means we don't use the Tickle app very much.

    There are two approaches -
    1. Add the ability for the iPad to playback the recorded sound for any robot or character - Sphero and WeDo would be a great start
    2. Dash - Connect with Dash's ability to have recorded sounds downloaded to him (probably harder of the two)
