StoryPagesHD™ for the iPad

SpinThought® StoryPagesHD is the iPad version of our StoryPages iPhone app. StoryPagesHD was built from the ground up for the iPad! The larger screen of the iPad makes it perfect for anyone that wants to create illustrated stories, storyboards, ad campaigns, or guides of any kind and deliver them quickly and easily. StoryPagesHD lets you create storyboard style pages with your drawing in a top panel and typed text in a bottom panel like a storyboard used during movie production. In StoryPagesHD you can add drawing-only and text-only pages to truly create an illustrated book!
