[prMac.com] San Francisco, California - StoryWorth, Inc., an online service which makes it easy to collect and privately share family stories across generations, launches the new StoryWorth iOS app today for iPhone and iPad on the Lifestyle category in the App Store.
After a free 30-day trial, a year of StoryWorth starts at $39 (USD), and hardbound books of stories gathered start at $34. Any stories written during your free trial are yours to keep. Through the stories of your grandparents' first kiss, your mother's favorite childhood prank, or your uncle's best cooking advice, StoryWorth is a way to connect to loved ones in new and unexpected ways.
Each week, StoryWorth sends a question you'd never have thought to ask to a relative of your choosing, either through email or the app. They respond with a story, which they can either write or record using the StoryWorth app, and that is sent to you and selected family members. StoryWorth's collection of over 500 questions has now prompted over 80,000 stories from families around the world.
Customers have called it a "great way to stay in touch with their families, bridging geographic distances," and a tool to "elicit entertaining, surprising, and sometimes moving responses." Stories are shared privately between customer and their families, allowing them to feel comfortable sharing every memory - including tales of childhood misadventures, pranks in the military, and even parenting advice.
Stories can be illustrated with photos, and are saved both online and in the app. They are also easy to print in a beautiful keepsake book, which can be handed down as an heirloom or given as a meaningful gift for Mother's Day, birthdays, and more.
Co-founder and CEO Nick Baum commented, "We've heard from customers that they're using these stories to initiate new conversations. So every time they get a story back from their mom or dad, the stories prompt meaningful conversations. By keeping StoryWorth's technology as simple and accessible as possible, we want to make it easy for everybody to deepen those family connections."
