Riverfold Software has rolled out a new photo-based journal app called Sunlit on iOS. The app allows you create beautiful stories that combine images, text and location check-ins. Capture your memories and share them with your friends seamlessly with this new app!
Sunlit differentiates itself from most other similar apps with its integration with App.net. The app is only accessible by those who hold a App.net account. The app syncs its content with App.net using user’s private file storage. It also enables you to invite others who’re having an App.net account to join you and see your stories.
When creating a story, you can add your desired photos from the built-in camera, your camera roll, or Dropbox account. You will also be able to add checkins with your saved former/present location from the services like Foursquare or Ohai. Then the app creates your story based on the location embedded in your images and checkins.
The company also explains that the major difference between Apple’s shared photo services and Sunlit is words. The app organizes your photos by date, where you can add some text related to the event, company adds. Moreover, you can also add filters to your photos before you share them; the app also saves the original (unfiltered) photos, so you can restore them in the future.
You can download the app for free, but it only allows you create 2 stories. However, if you want to create unlimited stories you can upgrade the app by paying $4.99 through in-app purchases.
