You’ve probably heard of how Storyworth turns a loved one's stories into a keepsake book. If so, you’re likely wondering about the differences between Remento and Storyworth. Here's an overview to help you decide which of the two products is best for you.
First, let’s compare the core offerings of each service. Storyworth and Remento are priced comparably and both result in the creation of a keepsake book. The main difference lies in the journey of creating the book itself, plus the final product.
Storyworth storytellers type written responses to a new prompt each week.
Remento storytellers record their answers to a new prompt each week - no writing, downloads, or logins required. Plus, recordings can be shared from any internet enabled device, including phones, tablets, and computers. Then, Remento's Speech-To-Story™ technology automatically transforms these recordings into written stories.
Storyworth storytellers have access to a bank of questions, or can write their own.
In addition to Remento’s bank of questions developed by professional storytellers and memory scientists, Remento storytellers can share reflections about photos. They can offer memories behind childhood photos, share stories of yearbook pictures, and reflect on the meaning of photographed family heirlooms.
Storyworth books are hardcover and printed in black and white.
Remento books are hardcover and printed in color. Plus, each chapter features a QR code that links to the originally recorded content. That means you're never without the voice of the book's author.
Storyworth offers basic features that enable the sharing of new stories.
Remento makes it easy to invite the entire family to participate in the exploration of a loved one's stories each week. All invited family members receive a summary of each new story in their inbox after submission. These people can add photos, ask questions, share kudos, and more.
Storyworth is a product best suited for aspiring autobiographers interested in writing a book themselves. If you or your loved one has been waiting for the chance to write a memoir, Storyworth is a great way to structure that process.
Remento is for those excited about capturing stories, but less excited about writing them all down. Remento makes the capture of stories easy and quick, meaning it's perfect for those with a bit less patience. It's also well suited for those eager to collect the stories behind old photos. Plus, by documenting more than just written words, Remento offers a mixed-media final product designed to feel more like a living collection of stories versus a static book.
“My Dad LOVED not having to write down his stories, almost as much as knowing his grandkids were listening to them each week.”
