Software maker Adobe has begun a trial program for "Ginger", a new iPad app that lets users create video presentations with a variety of creation and sharing options, reports CNET. Specifically, the app includes features such as touch recording for voice narration, a wide variety of fonts, colors, and motion effects to choose from, and streamlined animation and sharing to social networks.

The Ginger software, aimed squarely at the creative types at the core of the company's business, is designed to make it easier to build animated video presentations. It's designed for sales pitches, product explanations, and other situations where a person needs to get an audience to see the light.
Adobe is limiting the trial program to select users who previously expressed interest the beta and will allow the sharing of content created on the app but not information about the app itself, requiring testers to sign confidentiality agreements. A public release for Ginger appears likely but is not a certainty, as an Adobe spokesperson stated last week that the product is "one of many explorations" in the company's product pipeline.

Sounds cool... But just checked it out and it is just like they write on the website http://www.getginger.co/ = "...as playing with building blocks." = will likely not use it, at least not this iteration.

This seems like entering a very crowded space: Keynote, Explain Everything, etc. It would have to compete hard with regard to features and price. Can't think anybody would buy it if it costs more than $9.99...

Just an icon slideshow

Meh. I took a look at the examples at http://getginger.co and it appears to be a library of icons that you slide across the screen (in the wrong direction, in my opinion) in sync with spoken words. I became bored halfway through the second example since it was pretty much the same thing except for a different-colored background.

Since it's from Adobe, no one will be buying it. You'll have to pay them every month if you want to keep using it. :eek: :rolleyes:
