Adobe's new iPad app helps with presentations, newsletters and more

Squarespace offers folks who are less web savvy the ability to create a decent-looking website in minutes. Adobe is looking to do something similar for reports, newsletters and other web content with Slate. The new iPad app offers preset layouts with a library of fonts, colors and animations that allow students, teachers and business folks the tools needed to easily develop a polished presentation. As you might expect, you’re able to pull in images to complete the project, overlaying titles and captions as needed. The pre-built themes are designed to look good on the desktop and mobile devices, with buttons that’ll let eager readers do things like donate or register. Published work ends up as a sharable web link, text message, email or embedded on a blog or website.

Think of Slate like a layout version of Adobe’s Voice app: the software that debuted last year with a collection of templates for quickly producing video. And like Voice, Slate lets you speak whatever text you need to input rather than manually typing it in with your fingers. If you’re looking to give it a go, the app is available for free over at iTunes.
