Scribz—Art of Storytelling is an app by From Scratch that is described as being a “creative and fun way to make short photo stories.” Through using the app, users can quickly come up with photo collages set to a theme; they can then share them with friends or followers as they so desire.
Scribz is an app that provides a quick way for users to create small photo-based “comic-strip” style stories to share with their friends.
Scribz users can alter the appearance of their photos by applying one of the featured templates before sharing their collage with others; currently, the app features the ability to post to Twitter, Facebook, and Tumblr. Scribz users can also choose to keep their photos private or to email them to specific people as well.
Additionally, Scribz offers its own platform where users can share their creations with other members of the Scribz community. Unlike other photo-based social apps, Scribz offers its users the unique idea of always featuring a story told in just three photos and a few (optional) words if desired.
Through this format, Scribz followers can enjoy a whole new spin on photo-sharing apps, as Scribz encourages its users to tell stories (instead of just sharing brief moments).
Appearance and Layout:
Scribz is not only lots of fun but it’s also easy to use and easy to “get the hang of” on just the first try. I really like its ease of use, particularly for those who are already familiar with apps like Instagram (and other photo-based apps).
Scribz’s layout is simple and logical; I didn’t ever find myself wondering how to progress to the next step of the collage-creating process since the icons and layout were all fairly predictable.
Even though the main purpose of Scribz is to focus on the photo comics created by its users, some praise should still be said for the graphics of the app itself; they are clean, simple, bright—overall, aesthetically pleasing.
Scribz is a free app, so no complaints can really be made about its “price” at all.
While its popularity isn’t that of Instagram or other photo-sharing apps yet, it does seem like a fun, unique app that certainly has the potential to grow into a decently sized photo-sharing community. There are even some cool story samples for you to check out.
Overall, for users who are interested in trying out the latest photo-focused app trends, Scribz is definitely worth a try.
