Wednesday afternoon my phone started going crazy as it buzzed with texts and emails from team members, letting me know that the Story App had JUST updated. My heart jumped and I fumbled my phone with excitement to download the update. We are passionate memory keepers here and especially when it comes to our Disney memories. More than one team member has told me that they were shocked at how simple, fast, (and addicting) the Story app is. We have been, very impatiently, waiting for more themes and crossing our fingers that we would get some holiday themes. Disney came through for us in a BIG BIG way!! We all think the Story app is pretty amazing…but let me tell you…the new themes top it all!! They are…well…beyond amazing!!
There are SEVEN new themes (the Mickey In Paris theme pictured above is from the original app release). Five of the new themes are FREE including: Frozen, 25 Days of Christmas, Winter Wonderland, Season's Greetings, and Alpine Mickey. The two in app purchases are $1.99 and are: Toy Story and Winnie the Pooh.
Each theme comes with additional song/s that can be used with that theme or another theme (I love mixing up the music). One of the things that we noticed in these new themes is that the animations in the middle portion of the app change each time you view it. The animated scenes might be the same, but the characters and how the scene is played out, are different. The themes are SO extremely well done!!
How would you like to see them in action? Just click any of the images below to view the Story.
