Pros

  • Offers a template library with creative and attractive designs.
  • Add photo and video content within the same story.
  • Offers a collection of free fonts including serif, san serif and script options.
  • Choose from solid or outlined shape styles in a custom color.
  • Share story designs on Instagram, Snapchat and TikTok.
  • New templates are added each month.
  • Paid Planoly users have access to the full template library.
  • The app is regularly updated, so check back often for new features.

Cons

  • Limited template customization options.
  • Cannot save color codes making it somewhat tedious to edit and maintain a consistent branded look and feel.
  • Unlike similar tools, StoriesEdit does not include freeform alignment guides to help position text and images.
  • Does not include an animation feature.

Bottom Line: Although StoriesEdit offers fresh, new template designs, the app is missing some key features offered in other tools. It’s ideal for anyone seeking a few attractive templates yet doesn’t need many custom options.
