Streamline both professional and personal video content creation, management and sharing with SimplyTold. Gather the stories that matter to you or your organization from anywhere in the world, and share them using our curated, searchable online platform.

Our 400+ personal storytelling prompts guide you through the storytelling process, walking the interviewee through sharing important family history, revealing the stories behind precious heirlooms, or capturing special events like an anniversary party or grandchild’s dance performance.

Our varied packages help inspire you to tell the stories that matter to your loved ones, and create a legacy for future generations. Large family groups can gather their genealogy research, stories and photos, getting the stories off of individual phones into a shared group platform.

Videos are instantly viewable to your selected audience, invited through your webpage, and they can get notifications when new videos are posted.

SIgn in with Get Started credentials to browse the life story categories by scrolling the blue bar. As you touch each one, you'll see individual question prompts to guide you through the video recording process. Touch a question to record your story, one video at a time. You can view all your videos right in the app.

Businesses, non-profits, museums, libraries, schools and organizations (including those which serve seniors) get SimplyTold Pro - a completely customized video platform. Categories and questions that you choose appear on the app to ensure you capture the stories you need to communicate, sell, persuade and engage. These uploaded videos are then managed and approved by your team before they become part of the online, searchable video database. We provide tools to brand and embed the video page right to your website. We do all the heavy lifting to help set-up your SimplyTold program, train your team, support content creation and maximize the platform's capabilities for your needs.

SimplyTold Pro enables crowd-sourced content with our mobile app, and can be combined with a custom SimplyTold Story Station at your museum, facility, or event.

Great tool for my theatre group

Using SimplyTold to videotape our rehearsals and then share them with all the cast makes it so easy for everyone to rehearse at home. I really like how fast the videos upload and that they can be watched on the app or on our password-protected web page.
