<strong>Stories</strong> is an app template where you can post stories with a cover image, max 300 characters allowed, and users can reply to them by adding their own paragraphs and keep writing your story in a fun way. It’s great to see what your stories get to, paragraph by paragraph!

Users can like Stories and Paragraphs, as well as report content and Users to the Admin. You, as the Admin of the app, have to daily check your own Parse Dashboard for the reported content or users and take actions for them.

Since its backend is by Parse you don’t have to buy any domain/hosting, there are NO PHP files to upload to a web server so you’ll save some money for server side.

<strong>Stories</strong> is a native Android Studio project, Java/xml language, Universal, Parse SDK hosted on <a href="" rel="nofollow"></a> and super easy to customize.

About Parse SDK and back4app

Read this article for more info about back4app and Parse SDK:

<p><strong>Can I host Parse Server on my own server?</strong>

Yes, although I don’t provide support for the setup process, you can read the official Guide here:

<p><strong>What about free support for this template?</strong>

I can offer free support for bugs encountered in the original code.
Instead, if you’ve edited the code and messed something up with it, I may apply some fee to fix it either via TeamViewer or by checking your app project files directly on my computer.

<p><strong>How do I rename the app’s package name?</strong>

Read this tutorial to learn how to rename a package name:

<p><strong>Should I use the latest version of Android Studio to edit this template?</strong>

Yes, I always update my apps to the latest version of the IDE and you also should make sure you’ve updated the Android Tools to their latest version of the Android SDK manager.

<p><strong>The demo APK crashes on startup</strong>

Make sure that the minimum Android version of your device is the one listed in the FEATURES section below. If the problem persists, please contact me through my profile’s contact form and send me the Logcat message of you get when the app crashes along with the steps you made to reproduce the crash.
Please note that not all real devices print an error Logcat message, in this case just run the APK into the Android Studio’s emulator and you’ll surely get the red messages about your issue.

<p><strong>How do I remove AdMob interstitial ads?</strong>

You have to search for the following code in all java files -> onCreate() mthod, and just remove (or comment) it:

// INTERSTITIAL AD IMPLEMENTATION ------------------------------------
        final InterstitialAd interstitialAd = new InterstitialAd(this);
        AdRequest requestForInterstitial = new AdRequest.Builder().build();
        interstitialAd.setAdListener(new AdListener() {
            public void onAdLoaded() {
                Log.i("log-", "INTERSTITIAL is loaded!");
                if (interstitialAd.isLoaded()) {

Important Disclaimer: We’ve recently found out that some developers have bought our app templates, reskinned them just a bit and put them on sale on other source code markets similar to CodeCanyon, saying that they developed and own such source codes.
That is a serious copyright infringement, developers who buy our templates are allowed to reskin and sell them as apps on the App Store (accordingly to the License type they’ve purchased a template for) but are not allowed to put our original source codes for sale on source code markets, including CodeCanyon.
We will report developers who made copyright infringements to the competent authorities.
