Storehouse - cool app for story telling on iOS

According to the iTunes tag, Storehouse is ...
Share your world through Storehouse. It’s the easiest way to create and discover beautiful stories.
Combine photos, videos, and text to meaningfully document your experiences. Publish your stories for friends and followers, or share them by email, Facebook, or Twitter. Explore stories created by your friends and our community of storytellers from all around the world.
Storehouse was designed for mobile, from the intuitive touch-based interface to the way we allow you to create and share on-the-go.
We’ve made laying out photos, videos, and text so easy that anybody can create beautiful stories. Easily add photos and videos from your iPad Camera Roll, Dropbox, Flickr, and Instagram. You don’t need to be a designer to put together something stunning.
Stories look great on all screen sizes so you can rest easy knowing that you can share them with anyone.
Get inspired by exploring stories created by our global community. Instantly travel the world, learn a new skill, or discover interesting places and people, all from your iPad.

Here's their promo video.

It appears that Storehouse has just won an Apple design award in the past week or two as well. So, I gave it a try.

Firstly, the interface is clean and that usually makes for a simple app. And it pretty much is. The only issue I had was trying to find the embed link ... finally found it on the web view on my laptop - on your iPad is simply gives you the option to open in Safari, but the once there you can get the embed code for your website or blog. IMHO they should have this as an option on the final "publish" page too.

Anyway - here's my simple Storehouse just taken from some random pics from my camera roll. Embedded of course! This app could be used for any story that has plenty of visuals and short video.
