Steller for Storytelling Gets a Major Update

Before I get to the official press release for the Steller update, just a word on the name. A few people told me after I had mentioned the app that they couldn't find it in the App Store. Make a note that the name is a play on the word storyteller, so it's not spelled the same as the adjective "stellar", it's spelled like "teller" with an "s" at the beginning. S-T-E-L-L-E-R.

When Steller was first released in March 2014, it was named Editor's Choice and Best New App on the Apple App Store! And with this latest update, it's bound to only keep growing in popularity.

I'd like to send out a thank you to Jay and Jordan who kindly gave me featured spots under  the CREATIVE category with my painterly tutorial "California Dreaming" and under DIY with my Do it Yourself Macro Lens tutorial.

Now...on to the news!

The Popular Mobile Storytelling App for iPhone Announces Major Update, 
Expanding on its Discovery and Social Features

Everyone has a story to tell. Tell yours with photos, videos, and text, all right from your iPhone. 

Woodside, CA - August 21, 2014 - Mombo Labs, Inc. today announced a major update to its popular mobile storytelling app, Steller, for iPhone and iPod touch. Originally released in March, Steller makes it easy to design and share beautiful visual stories from the iPhone and iPod Touch. The engineering team behind Steller includes ex-Google, ex-Vmware, and ex-Microsoft  veterans Mark Lucovsky, Vadim Spivak, and Richard McAniff.

The updated version of Steller makes it easier to search stories and connect with other users. “We’re really excited by our growth and momentum, and with so many new users and stories being added everyday, we knew we needed to improve Steller’s search and discovery features," said Karen Poole, Co-Founder and Head of Product Design. “We’ve added comments, notifications on mentions, and search by keyword and hashtag, just to name a few. We’ve also added an all new Explore section, which will bring a whole new dimension to the user experience."

One of Steller’s featured authors, accomplished fashion illustrator Katie Rodgers started using the app early on as a beta tester. “Steller has been a beautiful platform to tell the story of my work, and has inspired me to create in a new way. The community on Steller is so vibrant and diverse, and I’m thrilled that this new release will make it even easier to connect and discover,” she said.
