Friday iPad Resouce: Bring documents to life with Slate

Adobe just released Slate and it is FREE.  Take documents and bring them to life!

Wow, this is an amazing tool. Of course I am an Adobe fan for years,  but Slate is simple,  add text, photos, layout and apply style & motion.  Scrolling transitions make words and images move for an engaging & compelling read.  If you’ve used Adobe Voice,  also Free,  you’ll find similarities.   

Adobe Slate is a fun and easy way to turn any document – a lesson, newsletter, book report or presentation – into a stunning visual story, in just minutes.  Clearly, an exciting way to present information!!

Just type or talk to add text and use your favorite photos. Choose one of the awesome themes and gorgeous fonts, magazine-style designs and motion automatically transforms your story – guaranteeing a marvelous read on any device.  

Each Slate story you publish is simply a link.  No unrelated content, no random ads — just your story. You can share it via text message, email, social media or embed it where you want on your own website.  Anyone can view your Slate and it will look great, whether they're using a phone, and iPad, a tablet, or computer.

Slate, is an extremely powerful communication tool — An easy way to share your knowledge and express creativity in visual essays, reports, journal entries, portfolios, book reports, science projects and more.  Ditch that Powerpoint! Through a simple link to the web, you can share your ideas and knowledge with the world.

Slate is free, which is kinda of unusual for Adobe, it makes me wonder if it will eventually be a paid app. So, install it on your iPad now, while it is free. Check Slate out, you will not be disappointed.  

By the way, we will be learning Slate in the DED318 class this semester!!
