Storehouse app wants to help you make beautiful photo narratives on your iPad

Storehouse is a new, free iPad app, that'll let you easily take your photos and videos from a number of different image services (and your own camera roll), and turn them into gorgeous, image driven narratives that you can easily share.
With Storehouse, you can pull images from the iPad's camera, Dropbox, Flickr, or Instagram, and combine them with video clips and text in order to create a functional narrative. As you can see from the sample video on the Storehouse site, much of the real appeal here lies in Storehouse's excellent seeming layout tools. Resizing images automatically adjusts the page layout, keeping your "story" looking clean and well designed. It's simply a matter of repositioning each image or clip, choosing its size within the layout, and cropping it down if you want. After you have it tweaked and fiddled to your heart's content, you can share it via a weblink that should work on any device of any size.
Storehouse's look and ease of use remind us of the recently announced site Exposure, which seemed to offer a very similar quick and easy way of pulling together photo narratives (and with a similar esthetic), but using a web interface rather than an app.
For now, Storehouse is iPad only, but it sounds like there may be motions to push it into other platforms as well — so hopefully your Android tablet will be able to get in on the action before too long.
