Hello Hunters, Snapchat, Facebook, Instagram and Whatsapp are creating a world where anyone can instantly share their stories with friends. For our part, we believe stories is the hottest opportunity for businesses to target Millennials, boost brand awareness and develop strong customer engagement. That's why we're so excited to officially launch Fastory in beta today: Fastory is a user-friendly platform where brands and medias can design full-screen mobile stories, integrating immersive and impactful content. We want users to be able to craft compelling stories that play out across major social media channels. We're super pleased to finally bring down the curtain on a project we worked on for more than a year. By the way, we'll gradually open new seats on the platform to ensure a closed conversation with early testers. Of course, priority will be given to Product Hunters! We can't wait to see what you're going to do with it! My team and I would love to answer your questions here. 🤓 Sylvain.

@franckmahon Thanks a lot for your support, Franck! Beyond the "Story" format which is currently a hot topic, we provide a very simple and effective solution to craft mobile experience from scratch in minutes.

@sylvainw looks great and a much-needed tool! (FYI - there's the phrase "add a text" all over the place. that doesn't make sense. either "add your text" or "add text".)

@dustin_nichols @buddhasource It will depend on the number of claimed accounts. We'll review and approve each account to ensure a closed conversation with testers. But we promise Product Hunters are our top priority :)

@sylvainw I love this. From a design perspective it is incredible and something like nothing around. However, I can't really say for the User Experience perspective. I look forward to using it and making some helpful comments. Great Job.

@sylvainw pick my team and I (Dress A Med) because we're a physical product. So just imagine what we'll be able to do with Fastory + Girls in cute nursing dresses. Also!!! If you look me up on LinkedIn, you'll learn that I've worked for so many major newspapers in the US. STORYTELLING IS MY BLOOD, I JUST NEED BETTER TOOLS LIKE YOURS TO DO IT RIGHT 😘 My first start up, way over 15 years ago was a physical magazine: www.shutupmagazine.com ❤️ So, please let me play with your crayons and I'll be your next great case study. 🌈

Being a Stories junkie, with upwards of 30 stories created a day during my #vanlife adventures, I'm always looking for ways to stand out. This looks interesting, but for the sake of ephemeral, will have to be super user friendly and quick creation, which is what it looks like you're striving for. Do you anticipate content being created for the actual feed for longer visibility? If so, how do you plan to handle the 4:5 ratio? (It's annoying that IG has two different vertical ratios between Stories and Feed!) Either way, happy to give it a go. IG: @KyleKesterson Email: kyle[at]freakngenius.com (invitation request sent)

A feedback from a Stories junkie is always very much appreciated @kylekesterson! And to answer your question.... Yes, we do indeed anticipate content being created for the actual feed for longer visibility :) This features will be released in the coming days and will allow you to export assets so that you won't have the 24h restriction. Regarding the 4:5 ration, we also have good news on that side as a matter of fact, as we do already handle it including with various features such as fit to screen and tilt to pan! We would love it if you could indeed give a try to our platform, make sure you register to our Beta and feel free to drop me a line if you have any additional queries! Cheers again and have a great evening
