Adobe today announced Adobe Slate for iPad. Adobe Slate is a free iPad app that lets you create a beautiful visual story that delights readers on any device. Slate stories help to quickly capture attention, increase awareness and inspire action. See a sample here.
“Slate lets you turn anything you want to say – whether it’s a book report, a newsletter or your latest travel adventure – into a beautiful visual story, in minutes. Bring your words and images together, tap on one of the professionally designed, magazine-style themes and beautiful fonts, colors and motion are automatically applied!”
This new app and service is a replica of Microsoft Sway.
Sway is an app from Microsoft Office for expressing your ideas in an entirely new way, across your devices. Use Sway to easily create and share a polished, interactive, web-based canvas of your ideas with family, friends, teachers, and coworkers. Sway makes sure your creation looks great on any screen. Sway is seamlessly integrated with OneDrive, your devices, social networks, and the web so you can drag and drop your content right onto your canvas. Sway’s built-in design engine takes the hassle out of formatting your various pieces of content by integrating them into a cohesive layout. From there, you can easily adjust the design to create a look and feel that reflects your unique style.
