Everything we do, we believe in expanding love and connection in people’s lives, their relationships and their communities. We do this by helping people tell and share their personal stories.
StoryCatcher® is the brainchild collaboration of Professional Personal Historian, April Bell, and iPhone App Coder, Urs Brauchli. April and Urs wanted to find a fun, easy, and engaging way to help bring family and friends closer together through video storytelling.
North Beach Apps, LLC was formed by Urs and April in 2012 to support the creation and distribution of StoryCatcher® for iOS.
Dennis Long entered North Beach App’s story in 2021 to assist organizations and businesses implement the power of StoryCatcher’s framework, telling meaningful brand stories.
