Create ebooks and Storybooks with Your Smartphone Photos and Videos

| Updated Aug 29, 2015

Pictures and videos are great for sharing your travels and activities but they only capture snippets of time and don’t really tell the whole story. An increasing number of storytelling apps, however, can help thoroughly document, preserve, and share just about any event. Here are three of the best, perfect for those RV travel memories:

Steller lets you upload photos and videos and type in text to create a mobile storybook experience – and can all be done on an iPhone. You can edit your stories before publishing them and then share on social networks like Facebook and Twitter. Readers flip through photos, videos, and text pages as if reading an e-book. The app is free for iOS.

Storehouse also allows users to import photos and videos from sources like an iPhone’s Camera Roll or other places like Instagram, Flickr, Dropbox, and Lightroom. You can’t add text to individual photos like with Steller, but it has more design options The app is free for iOS.

Android users should consider Storyo. The customizable app makes chronicling life easy by automatically searching your photos for set times or locations. Storyo also quickly combines video from the Internet along with maps, and titles to create stories that can then be shared with others. The app is free.

It's easy to share the storybooks you create with these apps with friends and family.

Here's one I did on a beachfront camping spot we just visited in Florida.
