Narrato, the gorgeous journal app that lets you "narrate" your life, has just been updated to version 2.1 with several notable enhancements. Last month, Narrato was updated to version 2.0. Narrato 2.0 introduced universal support with native iPad compatibility, A7 and M7 integration, and a new design based on the look and feel of iOS 7. Now, Narrato 2.1 introduces, most notably, support for publishing journals to the Web. As explained by the team behind Narrato:
We've been asked a lot for this next feature: You can now publish selected journals to the web! Yes you read that right, web publishing is here! From the journal Edit page you can flick the Publish to Web switch, the journal is then given a unique URL which you can then send to close friends or family, or if you're more extroverted you can publish it onto your favorite social networks! Remember, by default all of your entries are private and unless you make a journal public they will remain that way, when you publish a journal, if you decide you don't want to have those entries public you can turn sharing off, at which point the Entries are private again and the URL becomes useless!For an example of a Web-published Narrato journal, click here. In addition to Web publishing, Narrato 2.1 adds Facebook and App.net integration for importing content onto the Life Stream. Also, it adds support for logging in to the app via Facebook. And speaking of logging in, the login and signup screens have been prettified for good measure. The latest update to the app also introduces a new entry view. Instead of tapping and holding on an entry, you can now simply tap an entry to see the entry view and access options for editing, sharing, "rejournaling," and deleting the entry. What's more, in the entry view, you can see additional information including weather and map data. Narrato 2.1 also includes various performance optimizations and bug fixes. Compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad running iOS 7.0 or later, Narrato 2.1 is available now in the App Store for free. Narrato is free to use for up to 60MB of uploads a month. To increase your monthly upload limit to 250MB, you can upgrade to a Pro account for $0.99 for one month or $4.99 for one year. To get rid of your upload limit altogether, you can avail of an Awesome subscription for $4.99 for one month or $39.99 for one year.
