CheckThis is a free app for all iPhone users; the design element of the app is the main feature. It won’t take long until you can tell that it is made by hyper-creative types. Some features are exclusive to being first time introduced iOS world, like clever scrolling, other fun features include the choice of fonts, ability to select specific colors and shades, and personalize the content that is to be shared. Della Faille and the gang have been smart enough to make sure that there are just enough tools to keep the users excited and content, without being thrown into a pool of too many overwhelming tools. The idea as put forward by the founder is to make sure each user is able to create something he’s proud of and that can never go in the ugly direction.

This app is a great way to tell stories with your mobile device, with just few taps the user can create a “story” with colors, images, videos, some texts, even participate in polls of fellow CheckThis users. The app is originally made for users to share stories, using more than just a picture or a tweet. It’s a coming together of various tools to interestingly project a simple story and share with friends. The app has an “insta” aspect to it because it’s designed to be an on the go type app, however it will let the users think and produce great quality fun content that is personalized.
