Getting started with Unfold

Use this guide to learn about Unfold, download the app, and get started making beautiful content with Unfold’s award-winning designs and templates.

What is Unfold?

Unfold is a mobile app for making standout content to share on social media. With Unfold, you can:

  • Create unique stories for social media platforms like Instagram and Snapchat
  • Make and publish a hub page of links to your social media accounts and online content, which you can promote in your social media bios
  • Map out what your grid of published Instagram posts will look like to visitors

With Unfold, it’s free to create, customize, and share stories. You can also purchase additional templates to expand your toolkit, or subscribe to Unfold Plus for access to all Unfold collections, fonts, stickers and more.

Download Unfold

Download Unfold for free on Apple and Android devices. Visit the links below for up-to-date system requirements.

Downloading Unfold onto a new device

You can download and use the Unfold app on multiple devices. Keep in mind, posts and stories created in the Unfold app don't sync across devices, even if both devices downloaded the application using the same Apple ID or Google account. If you have Unfold Pro, you can export your Brand Kit from one device, and then import it onto the new one to used the same custom colors, logos, stickers, and fonts across devices. See our Unfold Pro guide for more information on importing and exporting Brand Kits.

If you linked a Squarespace account to your Unfold app on one device to publish a Bio Site, that same Bio Site will populate on a new device after you download the app and log into the same Squarespace account.
