Great Big Story is an app that offers inspiring documentaries about the uniqueness of humans and the places they live all over the world. So, if you're into documentaries and enjoy seeing the world, but don't always have the time or patience to sit through a feature length film, this app is for you.


Each video is two to three minutes long, highlighting interesting people and their traditions, innovations, food culture, and more. A new film is introduced daily, and there are hundreds of videos to watch. You can also browse through various series, playlists, channels, and guides.

Learn about new cities to visit, or just take tours of places you've always wanted to go. From ice fishing in Iceland, to cats being rescued from the super tall trees, to the most famous actor you've never seen—there's something for everyone.
