Adobe are best known for their professional Creative Cloud apps like Photoshop and InDesign, and tools like Acrobat, but lately they’ve been focusing on standalone mobile apps too. Now they’ve officially launched Adobe Voice, their brand new storytelling app for iPad.
Aiming to give anyone the ability to create and share engaging stories, Adobe Voice lets users easily create and share animated videos that combine images, music, voice recordings and special effects. This is great news for educators and students who want an easy in to creating basic video, using simple tools that make it easy to teach, to learn and to express themselves creatively.
It’s an ideal way for teachers to explain a concept or for students looking to create an engaging school assignment where they may not necessarily have the skills or resources to go down the traditional video route.
All you need do to get started is choose from a preset story template which outlines the structure of your video. Then you can simply import your own photos, pick from the app’s library of 25,000 icons or search the web for your own images. Next, pop a soundtrack over the top to fit your video from Adobe’s library, and even record a voiceover to explain your story. Your finished animated video can then be shared across social networks by posting a single link through social media, email, personal blogs or websites.
We’re going to be giving Adobe Voice a thorough test in the future, but in the meantime, why not give it a go yourself? It’s completely free and available to download now from the App Store on your iPad or from iTunes.
