We’re excited to announce the release of My Story 1.3.1. This release contains several improvements that make it simpler to create and share your books with friends and family. Launch the App Store app on your iPad and update today. If you’re new to My Story, download 1.3.1 here.
We believe that sharing books with My Story should be simple. Today we’ve taken a few more steps in that direction by improving our share with email feature. Now there is no limit to your book size, which makes email sharing more reliable than before. Books are uploaded privately and securely to the My Story website, after which they can be downloaded by the people you share with.
Teachers, we’ve heard your request to share stories as PDF documents. We could not fit that into this release but look for that feature later this year.
We fixed an issue with how a book containing special characters in any of its pages or its title wouldn’t open properly in iBooks. To open your stories in iBooks simply select a book, tap “Share”, then tap “Open In…” and select iBooks. If you don’t have iBooks, it can be downloaded for free from the App Store.
We increased the font size for page text to make it easier for kids to read. We also improved the deletion and rearrangement of pages so that you would have better control on creating great stories.
We are currently working on giving you the ability to incorporate text within a page. With that, you’ll be able to select from a dozen colors for your text plus have control over size and placement. This feature will give young story creators more control to create amazing stories.
If you have ideas for features, or would like to share your books with our team, send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. We’d love to hear from you.
