Storytelling Immortalia lets users record and share their personal video narratives
Through a series of categories and questions, the app prompts users to share their best stories
The iPad app enables people to record and share their personal video narratives and most precious memories. By answering a series of interview questions, the videos capture the key stories of one’s life, including achievements and major milestones. Users also have the ability to share the videos they record with others, helping to ensure that their legacy lives on even after they’re gone.
“I can’t tell you how my grandparents met or what my grandmother’s favorite color was. This app was created to preserve stories like those, so that we can truly know the history of our parents, grandparents, friends and loved ones,” said Alex Grigorian, Founder of Immortalia. “Immortalia can serve as an instrument to capture our emotional and deepest life moments and family history – that can live on once we’re gone. It allows us to save our stories and put them in the cloud – creating a digital version of our most cherished memories, our legacy. If kids are our voices to the times we will never see, Immortalia can capture our story for the people that we will never meet, but who will love hearing it.”
With Immortalia, loved ones and even future relatives will be able to gain insight into the everyday and defining moments that make a person unique. Through a series of categories and questions, the app prompts users to share their best stories, capturing not only words, but micro-expressions, body language, feelings and emotions.
The application features a variety of categories and questions, including Childhood, Love, Life Lessons and Regrets. Questions range in depth, from light-hearted inquiries like, “What was the most embarrassing thing that ever happened to you at school?” to deeper, more profound queries such as “When did you first find out that you’d be a parent? How did you feel?” and “Did you become the person you thought you’d be?”.
Immortalia is easy to use for people of all ages, from the novice app user to the more advanced technology enthusiast. Seniors can easily navigate the app and intuitively understand what to do throughout every step of the process.
The basic app is free to download. Users also have the option to subscribe to Immortalia Premium, which offers additional functionality, including the ability to store, share and protect their digital stories in the cloud for just $2.99 a month, or $29.00 per year. Payment can be made through the Apple App Store.
