Tell Your Story With The RealTimes App

This is a sponsored post.

It is Oprah who said that throughout her many years as queen of the daytime scene (my words, not hers), she learnt that people just want to be heard. One just has to look to social media applications and platforms to prove her right. We all want to tell our story in our special way. Developed by RealNetworks Inc. (creators of RealPlayer), RealTimes is a simple, easy to use app that helps us do just that — tell our story.

About the RealTimes app

A freemium app, RealTimes Video Collage Maker does exactly what the name says. It is a quick and easy to use video montage maker for ios and android devices, designed to make custom movies using the photos and videos, from your phone and pairing them with pre-approved music. These movies, known as RealTimes Stories can later be shared directly with friends or family, or whomever you wish. You can also opt to share your stories with the world across multiple social media platforms including Twitter, Instagram and Whatsapp.

What the REalTimes app looks like


Building stories: how it all works

RealTimes works by collating your photos and videos using geolocation and timestamp technology. This is done using the app’s RealCloud feature. After collating videos and photos, the app continues to go to work on your behalf, selecting the highest quality photos (that is, the non-blurry ones) for your story, and what it perceives to be the most important parts of your videos. From there, music is added and your story is created. Best of all, all this processing takes place in the background, so you can use your phone to do as you please, while the stories are being created. Once the story has been completed, you will be sent a notification.

Noted Features

The features of an app will allow it to either stand out from the competition, or get swallowed by it. Some of the special features of the RealTimes app include:

– RealCloud technology

Cloud storage for photos allows you to access uploaded photo and video files from anywhere as long as an Internet connection is available. This feature will come in pretty handy if you run into problems with your current device and have to get a new one. By storing your files in cloud store, you will be able to access them upon login.

Cloud Storage

– Editing as an alternative to automated stories

Although there is some amount of automation when creating RealTimes Stories, you will also have the option to edit your stories. If you so desire, you may add filters, crop photos, select (re-activate) photos or videos not automatically selected by the app (as well as unselect chosen ones), and re-order the videos and photos selected.

My own RealTimes Story

Last weekend we took a quick road trip to Lancaster Pennsylvania.  I put together this RealTimes Story so you can get a glimpse of how our weekend went.

Be sure to download the RealTimes app so you can create your own stories! While there is a free option, you might also consider going with the family account which allows up to 4 RealTimes accounts for the price of one unlimited subscription plan ($9.99/month).  This is perfect for families with multiple devices.
