Looks like Adobe’s rolled out the new 2018 updates of their Creative Cloud apps. I’ve included links to each of the What’s New pages on the Adobe site, plus videos showcasing specific features down below.
If you run any business you probably create content for various marketing, promotional and informational reasons. Perhaps you’ve struggled with ways to create content, or wanted to experiment with different kinds of content, but weren’t sure where to begin. I want to show you some of the many ways you can create different kinds of content using Apple’s iOS apps.
A newspaper, radio station and TV studio in your hands
If you’ve got an iOS device, such as an iPad or iPhone, you’ve got a powerhouse capable of creating tons of content, perhaps using apps you haven’t thought of. Packed inside, you’ve got almost all the capabilities now what a newspaper, radio station, television station and website.
Just the Apple iOS apps
There’s more iOS apps out there than I can possibly cover, so I’m going to focus on Apple’s iOS apps only. I plan to cover Adobe’s content creation apps in later articles.
Also, there are some features that macOS apps have but their iOS counterparts lack. For example, the macOS apps have export features that aren’t be available on the iOS versions, even though they can both access the same documents. These export features give you the power to use Pages for creating social media graphics, or Keynote for creating video promos. I’m going to focus on what the iOS apps can do alone and plan to later cover the macOS apps and additional things you can do with them.
Apple’s iOS apps that give you content creation power
- Blogs, reports or white papers
- Fliers and Posters
- Postcards and business cards
- Charts and infographics
- Calculators and checklists
- Video promos
- Video blog/podcast/vlog
- Video presentations
- Narrated screencast
- Background music for promotional videos
- Video blogs
- Promotional videos
- Product photos
- Blog content
- Outlines for presentations
- Scripts for videos
- Product photos
11. Preview/iCloud files
- Customized graphics
*While you can create the graphics, Pages and Keynote for iOS won’t export directly to PNG, JPEG, or GIF format, but PDF (which would need another step of conversion). Also, the iOS version of Pages is more limited on document sizes, so you can’t set the optimal size for sharing.
Did I mention these are just the Apple iOS apps. Granted, there are tons of other apps out there, some which have a better user experience or better features in my opinion, but I wanted to show what’s possible just with the basic Apple apps. And as I mentioned earlier, I plan to cover Adobe’s apps later down the road.
Thanks for the list, but…
I know, I know, that’s some list, but what good does that do. Well, I plan to go through each of the apps and show how to create each type of content and share my successes and struggles with each app.
The first app I plan to cover is Pages, which is a powerful editing application similar to Microsoft Word. Not as feature-rich as Word or Adobe InDesign, but there’s many things you can create with it.
Did I miss any apps or kinds of content that you would have had? Please let me know.
On the eighth day of Christmas, my true love gave to me…
Eight great apps for graphics.
On the fourth day of Christmas, my true love gave to me…
Four free mobile apps.
These four mobile apps for your WordPress site will save you time and effort. And since time is money, they save you money as well.
Okay, here’s a problem you might have: I sit down with a cup of coffee in hand with the intent to write a terrific blog post: one that’s going to grab people’s attention and maybe bring in a million bucks!
