About this app

Com-Phone Story Maker helps you create multimedia narratives, combining photos, audio and text in exciting ways to tell digital stories. The app's simple interface helps you create your own photo slideshows to document your life; send to other devices running the application or play back locally; create templates; export as a movie; upload to YouTube; or, save a web version to self-publish.


Each story can include any number of media frames. Each individual frame of the story can include an image or photo, up to three layered audio or music tracks, and text content. Anything in a frame can be edited at any time – for example, you can pause audio recording and then resume later, or load pictures from your media library. All elements of each frame are optional. For example, Com-Phone can also be used as an annotated photo diary, a simple audio recorder, a text and sound tool for discussion about current events, or even a multimedia survey app.


A simple printable user manual is available at: https://digitaleconomytoolkit.org/manuals/com-phone.pdf.



Com-Phone is completely free, with no adverts and no unnecessary permissions. The app is open source as part of the Com-Me toolkit – you can fork any of the Com-Me tools on GitHub: https://github.com/communitymedia.


For more information about the Com-Me project, see: https://digitaleconomytoolkit.org.

What's new

Version 1.6.8 of Com-Phone Story Maker fixes bugs and improves MP4 export so that devices that previously fell back to MOV will now successfully export MP4. Other recent changes include:
- Copy/paste of media between frames and narratives;
- A timing editor as part of the playback screen, which allows you to set the duration of each frame (enable in Settings);
- The option to export text as separate subtitle/SRT files (enable in Settings);
- Accessibility improvements, and dark / night mode
