Through an app update, Disney Interactive today introduced new premium animated Disney themes, music functionalities, an improved viewing experience and more robust sharing features to Story, a free digital storytelling platform for iPhone and iPod touch that turns photography and video into compelling personal narratives.
Using intuitive technology to access the photo and video library on your device and automatically organizes them into rich digital experiences which can be personalized, saved and shared.
