The Story app from Disney recently received a major update, so we wanted to share some of the new features with you. Since it launched, Story has been a great way to turn the photos and videos on your iPhone into beautiful multimedia experiences that you can share with friends and family. Now that experience is even richer, with a number of new features available to Story users.
We thought that the best way to show off the app was simply to use it, so we created this story. Follow along as we set one of our graphic designers, Gina McClurg, to work designing and painting a one-of-a-kind Vinylmation based on our favorite of the new Mickey Mouse animated shorts.
Among the bells and whistles that have been added to the Story app are premium animated Disney themes, like the Mickey Mouse one we used in our story, above. Additional themes include a Disneyland Resort theme, a Cars theme, a The Little Mermaid theme, and an ESPN SportsCenter theme. You can also add music from the Story music library to the background of your stories, including classic songs from Cinderella, Toy Story, and more.
Transitions throughout the themes have been updated and improved,as has the sharing functionality of the app. You can watch stories shared with you directly in your Story app, or use simple tools to share on social networks including Facebook, Pinterest, and Twitter. You can also e-mail them directly to friends and family, and post your story on a website using an embed code, such as we did above. Let us know what you think about our Story and our original Vinylmation creation, and make sure to try out the free Story app for yourself by downloading it today.
