Your stories deserve to be unique. In Fotopedia 2.0, we’ve brought in new themes and layouts that let you get even more creative with form and structure.
Presenting the Modern Black and Modern White themes
This update brings two new themes to replace the old white one, with more coming in future updates. Each has its own mood and style, so pick the one you think suits your stories best. If you’d like to migrate an old story to one of the new themes, see our guide here.
Switching between themes is easy: just tap the name at the bottom left of the story editor panel.
Storytelling with layout
Choosing between black and white is just the beginning. Themes let you select the position of text on every slide in your story, so you can pick the layout that suits your narrative best. Continue Reading →
We’re proud to announce the release of a new app, Fotopedia, which upgrades and replaces Fotopedia Reporter. We’ve been working round the clock on improvements, so it’s now even easier to discover the world’s best experiences and share what you enjoy through stories.
Fotopedia has been redesigned from the ground up to make sure you find what you like instantly. It’s packing lots of great new features for readers and storytellers alike.
Fotopedia is also now available on iPhone, so you can explore and discover great stories on the move. Pull up the map to find the best local experiences, wherever you are.
What’s new in Fotopedia?
Fotopedia: now on iPhone
iPhone users can now discover great stories on the move. Pull up the Fotopedia map to get the best local experiences, wherever you are. The iPhone app doesn’t support user accounts yet, but we’re working to add them in a future update. Get the iPhone/iPad app on iTunes.
All-new interface for a smoother experience
The Fotopedia team has rebuilt the interface from the ground up. Whether you’re using the app or browsing Fotopedia on the web, it’s now much easier to find what you like fast.
World map to find top stories near you
The new Map section lets you discover far-flung places or see what’s new near you. Use it to browse stories by location, so you get the best local content and the hottest tips from residents.
Search stories and collections
Finally, the search feature is here. Search people, places, subjects, collections, hashtags and more. Mark your own stories with smart keywords, or find other people’s stories fast.
More power for storytellers
Thanks to your feedback, we’ve built a better story editor for the people publishing great stories on Fotopedia. It’s now much easier and faster to craft, preview and share the perfect story.
New themes for your stories
Your stories just got a lot more eye-catching. Choose between two new themes, adjust orientation and text placement for each slide and tell your favorite stories the way you want them. And this is just the beginning: we’ll be rolling out more themes in future updates.
New photo sources on iPad
Fotopedia for iPad now lets you pull photos for your stories straight from Flickr and Dropbox, as well as using the images you’ve uploaded on Fotopedia. This should make your story workflow even smoother.
New, social ways to sign up and log in
You can now sign up or log in to Fotopedia using Facebook or Twitter, and link your profile to Fotopedia for easy sharing. For the moment you can only use Google+ on the Fotopedia web interface, but we’re working to bring it on iOS in a future update.
Various nips, tucks, tweaks and improvements
A few other things have been changed around for the new app. Personal Magazines are now known as Collections. The Featured section is now called Magazine. Actions have been made simpler and ratings have been removed to better reflect user interactions with the app. We hope you like the new look, and don’t forget to let us know your feedback.
