Storify iPad app should draw more users and live coverage
Storify | iTunes Store | The Next Web
Storify's brand-new iPad app unveiled this morning should extend the curation tool to new, more-casual users and increase the live-blogging of conferences and events.
In general, the app offers the same service the Web version of Storify does. But its touch-based interface is more intuitive for drag-and-drop story building. And the availability on a portable device now means more people can Storify an event live. There's also a new feature to tweet from within the app, so you can quickly post your own updates while curating others'.
Some other details worth knowing:
- The app does not offer login via Twitter or Facebook like the website does, so you'll need to set up a unique Storify password to use it.
- Content sources offered: Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, Flickr and a Web browser for adding page links.
- Facebook content is limited. You can only access photos of yourself, no status updates or other post types.
- The app has a landscape-orientation mode only, you can't hold the iPad upright while you use it.
