They say a picture speaks a thousand words. So what better than to sit back and let your pictures do the talking? With My InstaStory, users pull photos out of their Instagram accounts as per the app title suggests.

My InstaStory is basically a video montage creator tied to your Instagram account where the process is made extremely easy. Simply choose from the photos you have uploaded to the photo-sharing network, select some transition themes and music then sit back and let the app do the rest for you.

The result is a well-made photo slideshow that will beautifully portray your tales from your last vacation or even events from school.

What I don’t like about My InstaStory is that while the app does allow you to share your newly created video on other social networks like Facebook, you are not able to pull images out from albums hosted on those networks.

However, props have to be given to the developing team for a beautiful user interface. The simple and clean interface is extremely easy to navigate without having to go through complicated menus, sub-menus and buttons leading to nowhere.

While a free app, I would not quite recommend the download of My InstaStory for there is hardly a need for such an app and better support for other social networks is needed.

Quick Take


Would I Buy Again:No.

Learning Curve:NA

Who Is It For:Photography buffs.

What I Like:The ability to stitch your photos together to tell a story through a video montage.

What I Don't Like:The inability to sync with other social networks.

Final Statement:There are better image slideshow makers out there, this one doesn't quite make the cut.
