Nakeva Corothers: The landing page shows images are large on a page and text can be added. Blogs, Flickr, Facebook or Google+ already allow options for visual storytelling. Its up to the user to add actual story when uploading an image. I'm curious how Rewindy is different. Its a matter of how long it takes to get access to the "private beta" before I can offer more valuable insight.
Giuseppe Mauriello: Rewindy is the first visual story-sharing service. Create, personalize and share life events like travel, family or hobby events. You can share the story privately to a few friends using email or more publicly using Facebook or Twitter.
From Rewindy Blog:
"The photo doesn’t often capture the thoughts or feelings of the people in the event. This is why people love stories. A story is a narrative you can relate to and it highlights thoughts, emotions, relationships and can freely go into history or speculate about the future.
Things that are at extremely difficult with photos. A photo on the other hand creates a very detailed picture of a person, scene or object in the viewers mind.
The combination of these two the photos and the story is a visual story. Bringing together the context and narrative what happened behind the photos, with the best visual images. A visual story is a much more personal and expressive way to share your photos, or a visually beautiful way to share your story..."
