SpinThought® StoryPages is the iPhone app for anyone that wants to create illustrated stories or guides of any kind and deliver them quickly and easily. StoryPages lets you create storyboard style pages with your drawing in a top panel and typed text in a bottom panel like a storyboard used during movie production. Draw in fullscreen (landscape or portrait) and optionally add a background to set the scene or use as a tracing template with transparency control. StoryPages can be used for sketching movie scenes, animations, and comics. Use it for keeping a record of your product ideas, visual instructions (for hardware, electronics, contractors and landscapers), help files, construction and restoration projects, teacher curriculum, travelogues, hobbies, dream recording and more.

Be sure to check out StoryPagesHD for the iPad, and it's upcoming release 3.0 available soon!

Looks good so far

:
Update: the needing to have an image for every scene in my novel, (never a quick line of text), became annoying enough that I stopped trying to use the program. Ah, well.

ORIGINAL REVIEW
I searched the iPhone store for "Storyboard", "Storyboards", and "Storyboarding", and couldn't find a basic storyboard app like I was looking for. Fortunately, I tried google next, and it pointed me here.

This is very close to what I'm looking for -- first thoughts review now, which I'll update when I've had a chance to use it for a bit.

The Good:
* Basic concept: text, image, grid view, individual card view, uncomplicated. This is the only such app I've been able to find!
* being able to import transparent tracing backgrounds and delete them is a neat feature.
* So far, the interface seems well designed.

Room for improvement:
* Allow the *option* of showing the titles (and possibly first bit of text, if there's room. While brainstorming for a novel, I don't want to *have* to come up with an image for each card before I can see them laid out spatially.
* Even better if the option were on a per-card basis, but that's less crucial.
* Why is the image import ONLY for "transparent tracing background"? I'd like to be able to use photographs or images that I create in other programs, or draw/paint and scan in, or find elsewhere, as my storyboard image. You seem to be thinking in terms of a very limited use-case, when a tiny bit more flexibility (that doesn't complicate the interface or coding more than what's already there) wouldn't artificially limit your potential audience as much.

Anyway, I'll see how this one works in action.
