These days, visual storytelling is all the rage. And with the newly released Storehouse app for iPad, you can now get in on the trend with a few taps, pinches, and swipes.

Created by former Apple designer Mark Kawano, Storehouse offers an intuitive, gesture-based interface for combining words, pictures, and videos into narratives. The output has a slick layout, and is shareable through social networks. Think of the Storehouse platform as being similar to Medium, but having much more emphasis on visuals.

Storehouse

To make things simple, Storehouse can pull from the various media sources on your device, including your Camera Roll, Dropbox, Flickr, and Instagram. From there, you can drag and pinch to arrange and resize, and of course, add text. By design, the app doesn’t offer a full suite of formatting options. Rather, Storehouse keeps things simple and does some of the visual work for you, which is meant to result in a more polished and sophisticated end result.

Finally, there’s the sharing component of Storehouse. Once you’re finished, the app gives you an output link that can be shared via Twitter and Facebook, and at the same time, publishes your work to the Storehouse platform, where the global user community can see it.

Storehouse

With visual storytelling on the rise, Storehouse figures to have a ripe market to attract. But for now, we’ll have to wait and see if this beautiful piece of software can gain enough traction to become the go-to app in the space.
