New York – Calling all Fashionistas!
New York Fashion Week is on its way and that means thousands and thousands of posts shared online via Instagram, Twitter, Vine and more, but now there’s a new app that aims to help people rethink how they share photos. Instead of posting individual photos, Momentage is helping people create stories.
Rather than uploading just one image or video, Momentage allows users to “craft a story” through social media by creating collages of photos, videos and SoundImages, which allows for audio voice recording over photos. Users can incorporate text and change the layout to optimize sharing “moments” with the app. Momentage lets users continuously change their post with the ability to edit, add to posts and re-arrange photos to get a post just how they want it.
Momentage is launching just in time for MBFW. As photo sharing apps took off in popularity, Momentage founder George Casterneiras saw a void in the market for a collage-inspired photo and video sharing app. Now different forms of media can fit into one post.
Casterneiras was passionate about sharing images himself, and he wanted to create an app unlike anything in the marketplace. His endeavor, which he self-funded with $1.5 million, became Momentage.
Fashion bloggers are always looking for the latest platform to showcase designers and behind-the-scenes looks at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week. Although Instagram is still popular, it streams photo and video one post after the other. With the ability to add up to 15 photos at once, Momentage is out to change the way users share media. Now, they can use Momentage as a multimedia platform to share collages, sounds and videos all in one post from MBFW.
Quicker than a creating an entire blog post, the app captures a collection of moments to share. Each photo in a collage post can also be viewed individually on a mobile device.
Downloadable exclusively on the App Store (soon to expand to the Android market), Momentage makes it easy to drag and drop images and videos in the order wanted to create a storytelling moment, and then easily share to Facebook and Twitter. If friends and family don’t have the Momentage app, a post can be shared as a URL.
