Tools for Transparency: Use Storify on Your iPad


Sunlight continues to be a fan of Storify, a service we’ve written about in the past and recently used for a Valentine’s Day Super PAC postStorify, if you’re unfamiliar with it, is a storytelling platform that helps you to curate the real-time web and use social media to tell your story.  The service integrates with many of the popular social media sites like Twitter, Facebook, YouTube and so on.

For some time, you’ve been able to read Storify posts on your mobile device but with the launch of their new iPad app, you can now create your own stories on the fly.  As Techcrunch points out, accessing the Storify platform from the iPad is much more conducive to live reporting.
