Our lives are captured in our iPhone like flipbooks. The faster you scroll through the memories suspended in time, the more time wrinkles to replay happy thoughts again and again.
My photo roll takes me back to when my son’s feet still had their baby softness, and the moment his drawings went from scribbles to to detailed depictions of trains. It’s the only thing that made the universe slow down when he turned seven a few months ago, giving my brain time to wrap itself around the idea that my little boy isn’t so little anymore.
His birthday was made entirely of feathery, lightsabery awesome, and not once did a smile so big it made his eyes laugh leave his face.
Classmates crowded around, faces smeared with bright green frosting, wrapping paper and ribbons flying. There wasn’t even time to breathe, much less do anything but watch William experience joy.
The joy that comes laced with sugar and sheer happiness.
But how do you share those moments in context? How do you cobble them together to share more than singular snapshots?
That’s where Disney Story comes in with its effortless storytelling options and creative freedom.
To get you started, the Story app automatically selects photos stored in your camera roll, based on when and where your images and videos were captured. You can build stories in seconds, right out of these moments, or pick and choose your own by personalizing them with captions, pages of text, themes and layouts.
It’s all intuitive and addicting, considering that with just a few drags and drops, your stories can be curated and shared via email, Facebook or even embedded on your website or blog.
Only those who you invite can see them, and they’re visible in any browser on Story.us. You never have to worry about losing them either, since all the stories you create are saved in the app and backed up by iCloud for future viewing and editing.
