Mobile Monday is a weekly CanvasPop blog series featuring reviews on some of the coolest mobile photography apps, or gear available. Check back on Mondays for a new review!

Disney Interactive announced last week that they’ve just made their new app, Story, available through iTunes. The App is Disney’s solution to effortlessly, and artfully share your photos and videos through the mobile world.

Story is a cute idea if you’re looking to add caption, personalization, and themes to multiple images or videos before sharing them with family and friends. While there aren’t exactly a ton of customization features available with the app at the moment, we have no doubt Disney’s developers will continue to make more and more options available as the app starts to evolve.

The app is easy to use, and even easier to get started with. After you’ve downloaded the app, you will need to give it access to your photos and videos through your device’s privacy settings. Once that’s complete, you can get to work! You’ll notice there are two screens, “My Moments” and “My Stories”, that you can toggle between in the app. “My Moments” is where the app has stored, and chronologically categorized all of the images from your camera roll. “My Stories” is where you can actually build, personalize, and share those moments.

In the “My Stories” page, you can start building your own by tapping the icon in the top right hand corner of the screen. From there you can continually add media such as text, photo, and video to your “Story”. You can also choose from 5 different theme and layout options.

Once you’ve fully personalized your story, you can share it directly through Story’s site, Facebook, e-mail, or even embed it in your blog. Get it for your iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch with an iOS of 5.1 or later today! The app is currently available at the App Store free of charge.

At CanvasPop, we love the idea of sharing your story too. Create your own today with one of our collage prints
