How to Make Sharable Photo Stories and Books Directly from your iPhone or iPad with the NEW Blurb Mobile App

As much as Halloween is supposed to be about “scary,” in reality, it’s a lot about “cute.” It’s about kids in costumes, creative pumpkin art, and way too much sugar for everyone involved. Halloween is a holiday of sights and sounds. You’ll be taking photos and video that you’ll want to share that very night, but also keep forever. And, since you’ll likely be busy greeting trick-or-treaters, putting on costumes, and rationing candy, you need an easy way to capture the night’s events!

That’s where Blurb mobile comes in!

Blurb mobile is an app for the iPhone and iPad that lets you create sharable online photo stories—and turn those stories into beautiful 7x7 inch books. What’s a story exactly? Well, in the Blurb mobile world, it’s a sequence of photos and other media you capture on your phone. It can tell a literal written story—with beginning, middle, and end—or it can be just a collection of photos. 
First, take photos and video with the app, or import them from your camera roll (including those saved Instagram photos on your phone). You can add captions to your photos too. You can even record your little monsters saying “trick or treat,” and attach the audio track to your photo.
