How Stellar!

Stellar Mobile App

I tried Stellar recently. (Click here to see my budding Stellar page.) Heard about it? It’s yet another app built for telling your stories with images, video and text. There are several of these around; I think they get better with each iteration.

For some reason though, I got a wild hair to really give this one one a shot, rather than just window shop. Probably because it’s pretty. That’s what caught my eye first. And it’s super easy to use… always a plus in my book! It excels on mobile; on iPhone now (I know! I’m sorry Androidians! They ARE working on the Android version). I dunno, I just like it. You have to edit them on your phone, but you can see them on computer, which is cool. Super easy to share on social too.

I judge the merit of any new app or thingie I’m going to use by whether or not it’s fun and makes me excited to use it. I know, very scientific. ha! But this one does, for whatever reason. I’m thinking it’s going to be a fun way to tell stories. Teach stuff if you want to. Make fun, portable multi-media content of all kinds.

ANYHOO… just to keep it simple, I started with content I’m familiar with; Mountains, Forests and the Sunsets. I included a bit of video, some quotes, thoughts and… well, let’s just say I’m experimenting. I have some ideas. 😀 I plan to do New York, Paris, France, Rivers and other topics… so there are more on the way! This is what it looks like on the web… you have to download the app to see it on your phone.

Within 24 Hours…

But back to my point… I posted my first three stories night before last.

The next day Stellar informed me that “Mountains” had been added to their own “Action & Outdoor” Collection! I don’t know why I got so excited about this, but I did.

Then today I get a note that this same story is now on the Top 20 list of most viewed. [she claps like a little kid and dances around the room in glee]. All this before I even had a chance to tell you guys about it! So if you like it, will you ❤️ it? (you know, actually click the little ♡ by the comment field.)

I know. I should be more jaded. More grown up. More… boring.
But I can’t.
It think this is way too much fun. It’s positively… (wait for it)… Stellar.

You know I’d go there.
