Now that StoryFormer v1.0 is out of the door I thought I would give a quick update on what we have been working on.
We appreciate that currently it’s not possible to share your StoryFormer Stories with others while you are developing it. And if you’re not on a route to publishing to BBC Taster, this will remain a limiting factor for getting your work seen.
So, we’ve been working on a standalone StoryPlayer application. You’ll be able to download this, along with your story and all assets. This will allow you to share the app and assets (e.g. through dropbox, wetransfer, other providers are available…) to other people so they can all experience your story without having to get it published online.
We are just going through the release process now, getting the app digitally signed and the legals sorted. And of course, getting an icon designed for it.
I will update this post when we have a release date. Hopefully, it will be within the next few weeks.
