Editors’ Notes

We love a good movie, and we’ll marathon a show from start to finish—but sometimes we just want to watch something a little…different. That’s where Great Big Story comes in. This beautiful app features videos about food, nature, and extraordinary people—and it's as captivating as it is refreshing.

Outstanding articles with a bit of an issue

Love the format - quick way to learn about the diversity of cultures. Am having some issues with buffering - maybe the server overwhelmed? I have a 100+mb connection so I don’t think it is on my end. Hoping that improves as this is a great venue.

Worth Every Star!

I have never written a review on the app store but this app deserves my first one. In a world where we are constantly on our phones mindlessly using social media, watching hours of shows on repeat, and where the news is always negative, this app showcases how beautiful the world really is. The simple and unique UI lets the audience enjoy a small 5-10 minute video, opening our eyes to a new culture in the crevices of this vast planet, new ideas, a humble yet innovative person, etc. I hope this app gets more attention since it will make people a little more open-minded and appreciative of the world we live in.
