Created by iOS Developer Phillip Ou at the YC Hackathon, 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.
