Blurb Goes Mobile Just in Time for Hallowe'en
As much as Halloween is supposed to be about “scary,” in reality, it’s a lot about “cute” as well. It’s about kids in costume, creative pumpkin art, and way too much sugar for everyone involved. Halloween is a holiday of sights and sounds. You’ll be taking photos and video that you’ll want to share that very night, but also keep forever. And, since you’ll likely be busy greeting trick-or-treaters, putting on costumes, and rationing candy, you need an easy way to capture the night’s events.
That’s where Blurb mobile comes in.
Blurb mobile is an app for the iPhone and iPad that lets you create shareable online stories—and turn those stories into beautiful 7x7 inch books. What’s a story exactly? Well, in the Blurb mobile world, it’s a sequence of photos and other media you capture on your phone. It can tell a very literal story—with beginning, middle, and end—or it can be a collection of photos.
Just take photos and video with the app, or import them from your camera roll (including those saved Instagram photos on your phone). You can add captions to your photos too. You can even record your little monsters saying “trick or treat,” and attach the audio track to your photo.
Want a printed version of your story? Of course you do. Blurb’s Small Square books start at $12.99 for a 20-page softcover, and shipping is just $3.99.
So, whether you lean toward the scary or the cute or some awesome combination of the two—share your stories on Halloween night on your favorite social media sites with Blurb mobile. And then in a few weeks, get a beautifully bound photo book that you can look at for many Hallowe'ens to come.
Have a happy and mobile Hallowe'en!
