Edit on a Dime: The Week Ahead
Happy Monday to all of you out there, thankfully the Consumer Electronics Show is now behind us.
It feels quite possible that a cold was caught by yours truly simply by reading the numerous reports of germs being spread from booth to booth on the show floor. I'll do my best to soldier on, in the meantime if you haven't already, you can experience the convention vicariously by reading my 'Best of CES' post here.
Once you've digested that you'll be prepared for the week ahead. I'll be testing a variety of extremely cool apps that turn your iPhone into a real, productive creative device.
- I'll revisit cinemagraph creator Kinotopic. I liked the idea of the app, but found it hugely flawed. The app's creator, Radu Spineanu has joined us here at Edit on a Dime and commented that there's an update that fixes many of the issues I had. I'll take a look at it again and compare it to another cinemagraph app, iCinegraph.
- I've never liked iMove on the iPhone. There I've said it. I find the interface clumsy and unintuitive. Over subsequent days, I'll try two iMovie competitors, Splice and Reel Director. I'm a big fan of Reel Director's sibling app, Reel Moments, and am hoping for a similar level of quality.
Of course, I'll also be posting all the breaking news in the world of low-cost image and audio editing as well. I urge you to join me here at Edit on a Dime and post your own stories. Though I have strong opinions, it's healthy to have different and dissenting views here. So please do sign up like Radu and join the conversation!
