STELLER UPDATE

Where we were, where we are, where we’re going. Throughout any of this story, hit the comment button and let us know your thoughts!

When father daughter team of Richard McAniff and Karen Poole founded Steller in 2014, they had a dream to connect like-minded people who were passionate about sharing visual stories. Since that dream, the Steller community has become a reality.

According to user feedback, you prioritize sharing: - Meaningful moments over selfies - Experiences that inspire curiosity rather than envy

Our team is evaluating where our next journey will take us. Please let us know what you think about the following updates:

App refresh for latest generation smartphone screens... finally!

- Enhanced search functionality - Upgraded statistics and reporting - Option to include music in stories (Just like this one!)

We’re also very excited to be launching Humans of Steller. This is an invite-only group of our top users and community leaders. Also, we are re-launching Steller meet-ups. A great way to connect face-to-face with other storytellers and create new adventures!

For the first time we’re introducing Steller #Hashtag Contests! To kick it off, our partners EpiXtrip are giving away a week in Tahiti for two, worth $29,000! All you have to do create a travel story and hashtag it #epixtrip. Learn more about this trip by clicking here. Good Luck!

We’d love to hear your thoughts, feedback and your ideas. Please leave suggestions in the comments section of this story. Thank you & you’ll hear from us soon! Steller :)

    I'd like the ability to create landscape format pages...I like panoramic photography, and at present there's no way to accomodate that.

  • Steller

    @southsky30 This is an interesting concept! Thanks for this.

  • Steller

    @leehorbachewski Hmm, this shouldn’t be happening at all. In your iOS settings, if you scroll down to Steller, please check the ‘Mobile Data’ tab is switched on. If not, please email through to support@mombo.com and we can take a look into this further.

  • Steller

    @thegypsyspirits We love that you’ve been able to create connections through the Steller App!

  • ankagra52

    I really like steller and I have started to teach seniors 70,80+ to use it. Adding music would be interesting option :)

  • DebraLuker

    I love your app please add landscape options like book pages, it would be amazing ! thanks

  • andreaschnoorpr

    I'd love to see Steller Active, or something like that. A section that helps seekers find good things to do in ceratin regions, illustrated the Steller-way.

  • jmbroughton

    love it! beautiful experience,,,,the story telling aspect make it so unique

  • gracecardie

    I like this idea

  • gracecardie

    Great idea

  • Faithful4Life

    I think what you are doing is awesome. I love the app & still newer to it, I haven’t had as much time to make many creations. W/ unfortunate events in the past 8 months it has kept me from doing just that. I hope as things are now shifting I will be able to share my creative ways to express much of what I love and see in the world and hope to be able to join and be apart of that community too. I wonder what amount of time dedicated to the app and your creations made you have to have put in to join??

  • Eduz1966

    “Curiosity rather than envy” love this!!! App for ipad please

  • Faithful4Life

    When entering the contest, does your creation have to be of a vacation you have taken? Unfortunately, I have not taking any vacations to any beautiful places quite like what I’ve seen in here. Heck, we have never had a honeymoon so outside of our own home town, I have not been blessed in that way. Can creations be anything to enter?

  • Steller

    @ankagra52 Wow, this is cool! More features coming soon.

  • Steller

    @DebraLuker So do you mean like double-spread?

  • Steller

    @andreaschnoorpr We’ve started to discuss something along the lines of this! We’ll keep everyone in the know if it’s something we can do.

  • Steller

    @jmbroughton Thanks Jenifer!

  • Steller

    @Faithful4Life Hi, we look forward to seeing your stories and being a part of this community. Who’s your favorite storyteller here?

  • Steller

    @Eduz1966 We’re looking into this! Stay tuned.

  • Steller

    @Faithful4Life How about making a story about where you live? Sometimes you don’t realise what’s right underneath you, and we love to see stories from all over the world.

  • Faithful4Life

    @Steller I have several I follow & it’s hard to pick a fav but I really love the nature ones by Andy & Karen has several great ones as well. I love the DIY one ❤️ I too am crafty, it’s just been awhile since I have been in touch w/ my creative side. W/ so much going on in my life right now I haven’t been on for awhile but recently made my way back.😊 I have to be careful since I have an addictive behavior & can easily sit on Stellar for hours looking at others books & than start planning ideas for my own.

  • Faithful4Life

    @Steller I have started picking places here where I live to create and excited to start crafting my own. Thanks for creating such an awesome app. I love it and share it every chance I get.😉💃🏼💃🏼

  • DebraLuker

    Yes double spread . Would be amazing . Tell me is there a maximum you should load in images on drafts ?

  • leehorbachewski

  • paul_story_pics

    is there a way of making the home page more dynamic .. everytime you open Steller and seems no changes, no dynamics , you start wonder the exposure of stories.. this is just a psy matter though ..😊

  • Steller

    @DebraLuker Hi, can you clarify further? Do you mean images within a story or amount of drafts you can have? Thanks!

  • Steller

    @paul_story_pics We’re actually looking into this. This will be part of the new updated feed!

  • paul_story_pics

    the other thing is in responding to a vomment from someone .. need to type @ then the name .. easier if there ia a reply button/menu correspond to each comment

  • Steller

  • lalunabyte

    Hi @Steller I really want an update for unlimited text box please, so I can write on more than 2 text box... Thank youu 🙏

  • sultryvintage

    Is there an option to toggle between accounts? I just signed up For another one but for some reason I can't publish stories via my iPad, the toolbar dissapears after I hit preview. A toggle would be super helpful! Let me know if I just missed it 😄

  • Steller

    @lalunabyte Just the thing we’re working on right now ;)

  • Steller

    @sultryvintage Hi! We have a fix for this. If you update to iOS12 you will the. See the publish button again!

  • sultryvintage

    @Steller ah ha! Ok I'll try that, thank you!

  • lalunabyte

    @Steller thank you so much :))

  • danielle_v_b
