Adobe Slate for iPad Lets Users Create and Share Magazine-Like Visual Stories


Today Adobe launched a new iPad app called Slate, which lets users easily create and share stunning multimedia presentations.

Adobe is looking to provide users with an easy-to-use solution for creating visually appealing reports, newsletters, and other web content. The new iPad-only app offers preset layouts with a library of different fonts, colours, and animations that lets anyone develop a polished presentation.

“Turn your next newsletter, report, invitation or travel adventure into a gorgeous story that delights readers on any device. Simply tap to select a unique look — beautiful fonts, color and magazine-style design are automatically incorporated. Fluid movement and elegant motion are applied instantly. Share your Slate story link anywhere. Grab attention, increase awareness and inspire action. Stand out.”


All of the press layouts are mobile responsive, which means that they will look good on a desktop or mobile device.

After creating a visual story with Slate, users can upload the content so it can be viewed as a webpage. The presentation can be shared as a link or embedded on your own personal blog or website.

Adobe Slate for iPad is available as a free download from the App Store and does not require a subscription to the company’s Creative Cloud service. Earlier this week, the company released another iPad-exclusive app called Comp CC, which is designed for mobile application designers.
