As of today, My Story - Book Maker for Kids has been downloaded over 25,000 times by parents and teachers across the globe on the iTunes App Store. It’s hard to believe a year ago our creative director Brian Vanaski had an epiphany that would end up becoming My Story.
Brian’s younger sister was getting frustrated trying to tell a story because she couldn’t yet write very well but had plenty of ideas. Fumbling with paper and different writing tools, she had trouble organizing everything and keeping the story together from event to event. In that moment Brian realized creating an app for the iPad would help her—and other children—immensely.
Six months later, in August 2011, the app was in the App Store and we’ve been pouring our hearts into it every since.
On behalf of the My Story team we want to sincerely thank you for your support, ideas, and amazing stories. We have a lot planned in the coming months, so stay tuned and keep on creating and sharing your stories.
