I’ve been playing around with these Mac apps recently, planning to incorporate them into my workflow.
Mail Designer 2
This is a nice little app for email newsletter campaigns. Although you have to pay more for responsive mobile ready viewing (bummer). You can layout your graphics in the app and send your final design from the app or through Mailchimp etc. There is a drag and drop Html 5 rendered layout. There is a bevy for fine templates to fuss about and some eye catching gif icons to woo your customers!
Yes your designs can jangle and jingle if you want them to. After buying it on initial discount, I’m expecting this will give some visual kudos to my mailouts!. You can check Mail Designer 2 out in the Mac app store.
This is an interactive slideshow maker that can be viewed on multiple devices. With the use of galleries, inline links, videos, and standard slideshow presentations, makes it a very adaptive way to present content online. Actually your content is hosted in the the cloud and assessed through public or privately shared links. Its gaining momentum in the Educational Sector for mobile rich content. Get more info at the Flowboard site.
My favourite at the moment because it is so easy to use and looks lovely and is free! This is Sitedrop and converts your dropbox folders into and web based interface with each sub folder being a menu link. The folders content be it pdfs, jpgs, links etc are displayed beautifully. There is a slide show for images and text content is wonderfully formatted using Markdown. There is premium features to come and your limited to 5 sites to each dropbox account.
I’m already using it to share my prototyping ideas with colleagues for feedback. Did I mention that comments are available and its can be shared publicly or password accessed for private sharing.
Poster made using Comic Life 3
A UCD committee led Poster Campaign highlighting social prejudice was the source of this piece!
I enjoyed using Comic Life 3 It’s definitely an app to keep handy for sequential presentations and quick comic strip layout. The fact I can drop in speech bubbles and edit all the content is way cool indeed!!
