About this app

Join 20 million happy users and unleash your creativity!

1. Write a text conversation in TextingStory
2. Create a video with your story
3. Watch it and share it

TextingStory allows you to write conversations just like any messaging app, except you can switch side by swiping left or right over the message area. You can also press the characters' names.

Take all the time you need to write your texting stories. The videos are automatically accelerated for a consistently fast-paced result!

Every key stroke is recorded so feel free to play with corrections, hesitations or misspells!

This is a simple app with endless possibilities.

TextingStory pioneered a new video format in 2016 and has become wildly successful on various social media, with some users getting tens of millions of views of their videos. It got its own Know Your Meme entry and T-Mobile even reproduced it in a 2019 Superbowl ad.

TextingStory is also a popular app in education for spicing up course material or hands on activities with students.

It's a good app- but I can't do a whole lot. I can change names/profile pics, but that's all for the pros. Then you can text stories but can't change the bubble colors or make group chats. You can't turn off the text noise without premium, so I can't listen to music while I do it, which helps me focus. You can edit things pretty specifically tho, which is handy. So a quarter of this you can do free, but the real experience must be paid for. The app is ok, I'm just sure there are better ones.

Great app, fun to use, but it's really annoying that you need to pay to turn off the texting noise. You can't really listen to music while using the app, and(for me) I need to have some type of audio while doing things. Uninstalled until this gets changed. Another thing is that I wish we could choose which color the text bubbles could be, even as non-premium users between blue & purple. My third and final thing is we should be able to see the video before we take forever to export it.

I love this app, but recently my phone broke and all my stories were gone. It would be nice if maybe you could sign in with your email or something so when you download it again, all your payments and stories that you made are saved. This makes it easier so you don't have to buy it again. This is just something I've been thinking about for a while because it's annoying losing all your stories and buying the stuff in bought last time.
