Adobe Introduces Adobe Voice, a New Creative Tool for iPads

Posted by Tre Lawrence on May 8th, 2014
+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

Adobe has just released a creative app named Adobe Voice; the utility is geared towards making it easy for users to create animated video in very little time. No filming is required; users can select from more than 25,000 images that reflect an idea and vision, tell the narrative that needs to be expressed, and the app takes care of the rest by attaching cinematic motion and a musical score. Completed creations can be shared via social networks, or disseminated by other means.

As MacRumors notes, the output hearkens more to animated slideshows than true video, but the draw is probably in the simplicity of operation.

Adobe Voice is available for free on the App Store.

Enter The SandBox Preview

Posted by Rob Rich on February 13th, 2012

Holy crap. No, seriously, holy crap. Pixowl Inc, in collaboration with Bulkypix, are poised to unleash something major on the App Store. It might look like a simple toy at first, but make no mistake: The SandBox is packing some seriously intense concepts behind that cute facade.

When The SandBox first caught my attention, I thought it looked like a nifty little pixelated world-building game. In a way, it kind of is. However, I was thoroughly unprepared for just how many different aspects of this created world could be manipulated. Water will flow down hills, erode stone into sand, turn dirt into fertile soil, evaporate in extreme heat and freeze in extreme cold. Flowers and trees can grow. Weather will develop based largely on the environment. Players can even make rudimentary circuits to do anything from heating to creating light.

The SandBox is still very much in beta at the moment, but that's no reason not to get excited. What's already implemented is pretty amazing, actually. A lot of specifics are still up in the air, such as the final number of "story" levels (currently around 20), price and release date. It's kind of a shame because this is all so cool, but then again it's probably best not to rush things. Although the super-curious or anxious can try to get in to the beta. No guarantees, though. Regardless, be sure to keep an eye out for The SandBox whenever it does hit the App Store.

Instaviz 1.5 Now Available. Adds A Bunch of Features. PLUS We've Got 10 COPIES to Giveaway!

Our rating: starstarstarstarblankstar :: ABOVE AVERAGE :: Read Review »

We love Instaviz. In fact, we reviewed it in full back in January of this year proclaiming how good it actually was. Imagine a white board .. and then imagine all that creative power, in your pocket. You don't need to bring anything with you. Simply you, your ideas, your thought-process, and .. your finger. Closely compared to the likes of Microsoft’s Visio, and based off the concept of Graphviz, an existing and open source software package which achieves more or less the same results, Instaviz is dubbed 'graph creation software' and it very cleverly uses the iPhone's mutli-touch interface to harness the manipulation of mind-map environments.

A few weeks back now, Glen of Instaviz gave us the heads up on an update to the software Version 1.5. This new version sees a variety of new features added, some which were needed, and others which are just nice to have. The more noteworthy is this version includes an entirely new display architecture. It sounds fancy, but we're basically told that this means that the zooming, panning and placement of objects is faster, smoother, and more reliable. Still all part of this new architecture, in 1.5 Pixelglow added animation, meaning now, any and all objects which you create morph into their final shapes, and once an item is deleted - it fades out. The update also adds two-finger panning and zooming in 'Edit' mode, Batch file operations in Graphs list, and complete help files and localizations in 10 languages. They're small changes, but ones which I'm sure will make a difference.

"One of our goals with this update has been to make scrolling and zooming within Instaviz 1.5 so intuitive and smooth that you don't notice you're working on a small screen."

As well as all that, they've also rejigged the sharing aspect of Instaviz, meaning you can now carry out features like export, duplicate delete and preview in one tidy interface, at graph level. Finally though, and probably most excitingly, is this verison adds the future foundations for Instaviz 2.0, with this verison introducing the ability to in-line edit, as well as adding CoverFlow-like views for your graphs.

Instaviz 1.5 is already available on the store, and courtesy of Glen and Instaviz we've got a whopping 10 COPIES of the application to giveaway to you creative lot! Being a creative based app, we thought long and hard about what we wanted to base this giveaway around. In the end we came up with this ..
