"ASF: “Alternative Storytelling Forms”. It made Journalism professors drool, and it made us students roll our eyes: scholar-speak for captioned photo essays, or a unique graphic, or, for the ballsiest of muckrakers, a social media shoutout (crowd-sourced tweets!). Just a few years out of living exclusively within NPR and multiple-choice questions in journalism classrooms across the country, heightened storytelling online has matured from awkward Frankenstein experiment to something streamlined, accessible, awing and entirely expected of major publications.
Storehouse brings illustrative storytelling to the everyman (and everywoman) through an iPad app with a very basic formula: add photos from dropbox, your photo library, Flickr or Instagram, then swipe, pinch, and pull to structure them in a wide variety of formats, with or without text, which can likewise be added and edited. The app is free; the stories you create are entirely public and all readable through the app."
