Created by IOS Developer, Phillip Ou, Storyview transforms the photo sharing experience by integrating the excitement of travel with the fulfillment of storytelling. Each photo is saved in a specific location along with the rich story behind it--awaiting travelers to discover it when they visit. Utilizing Parse's geolocation backend, users see all the experiences--from the heartwarming to the humorous--that have occurred at each destination they visit.
By allowing more text to describe the moment, Storyview harkens back to a time when accounts of our adventures didn't merely travel through short tweets and quick snap shots. While certainly a departure from other photo sharing applications, Storyview's promotion of a more methodical, thoughtful photo sharing process will ultimately provide a richer, more fulfilling story telling experience.
The application is currently pending release in the App Store with a scheduled release in the coming week.
