Adobe releases award-winning Slate app for the web.
Adobe have announced that their award winning iPad app, Adobe Slate, is available from today, free of charge, as a web app. Slate is a simple tool for rapidly crafting beautiful stories, from images and text. Positioned somewhere between a micro-site and a Medium post, Slate features fullscreen images, well refined typography, and slick transitions. 001 Creating in Slate is easy, just add your images and text, select one of the 11 pre-designed styles, and share on social media or via email. Slate is packed with parallax transitions, and the predefined layouts, while a little generic, are more than adequate for newsletters, simple brochures, and one-shot communications. Slate is fast to use and potentially a really good platform for photo-essays, diaries of road-trips, wedding-day photos, and any other meaningful event in your life. If you already have Slate on your iPad, upgrade to the latest version to automatically sync with the web app. You don’t need to be a Creative Cloud subscriber to use Slate on the web, simply sign up for a free Adobe ID and log in at slate.adobe.com. 008 002 006 007 004
