Mobile App Watch - June '14
Adobe is helping its users tell better stories with the launch of its new app, Adobe Voice. Through the app, users can combine icons, images, text and their voices to create unique videos. In addition to importing their own photos, users also have the ability to choose from the app’s library of more than 25,000 images.
Google Docs & Google Sheets
Google is taking on Microsoft’s new Office apps for iOS with the launch of its own productivity apps, Google Docs and Google Sheets. With Google Docs, users can create, edit and collaborate on documents. Conversely, Google Sheets enables users to complete the same tasks but on spreadsheets. Both apps allow for users to work with others in the same document simultaneously.
SlideShare delivered its first mobile app for Android, giving users on-the-go access to more than 12 million presentations. Users can follow topics of interest, view presentations, share their own presentations across social networks and even save presentations for later viewing offline.
Dropbox has brought its popular email client, Mailbox, to Android. The app supports Gmail and iCloud accounts and is designed to make it easier to browse emails on mobile devices. With just a swipe, users can archive or trash emails, as well as push snooze to have messages automatically re-sent to their inboxes at a later time. The app even learns from users’ swipes and snoozes to automate common actions over time.
