Adobe Voice 1.0
Build your story using photos, icons and other page elements.

Traditionally, putting together a video can be a time-consuming, difficult process, particularly if you’re new to the process. Adobe Voice aims to change all that with its slideshow-based approach to creating a movie using animated images, icons and your own voice.

Start by tapping Create a New Story. Give it a title then choose a structure (or keep it loose, entirely up to you). Then it’s simply a case of building the slides – or "pages" as Adobe Voice calls them in keeping with its story narrative – one at a time.

Skip the tutorial to immediately access the full gamut of features. First, pick an overall theme and your choice of background music to match your story. Once done, record the first line or two of your script. Listen back, then either re-record or move on to the next stage. Start by tapping Layout to choose one of five types of layout, basically giving you a choice of placing one or two elements on the page.

Elements consist of text, icons or images – Adobe Voice lets you search from thousands of freely available images online, or you can download photos from your own collections, either on your iPad or via supported online services (Adobe’s own Creative Cloud, Facebook and Dropbox are all supported in this initial release).

Once selected, Adobe will automatically choose background music and animate the page, allowing you to preview it before moving on to the next one. Once your story’s complete, you can then share it – either publicly for other Adobe Voice users to see, or privately so only those with an actual link to the slideshow (which can be shared via Facebook, Twitter and Messages as well as email).

The whole process is intuitive and simple to follow – and mercifully quick too. The hardest part of the process is choosing a topic and then working out what to say. The app description mentions the availability of in-app purchases – at time of writing, none were available, but so long as this core functionality remains free, Adobe Voice is a great proposition for someone wishing to create slideshow-based video stories.

Verdict:

A great way of quickly transforming scripted audio into a full-on multimedia video for sharing with others.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.12.5

Free Full Commercial Software

WhatsApp Messenger is the world's most popular instant messaging app for smartphones.

You can use it to send and receive text and voice messages, photos, videos, even call your friends in other countries, and because it uses your phone's internet connection it might not cost you anything at all (depending on whether you'll pay data charges).

It's easy to set up and use. There's no need to create and remember new account names or pins because it works with your phone number, and uses your regular address book to find and connect you with friends who use WhatsApp already.

You can talk one-to-one or in group chats, and because you're always logged in there's no way to miss messages. Even if your phone is turned off, WhatsApp will save your messages and display them as soon as you're back online.

There's plenty more (location sharing, contact exchange, message broadcasting) and the app is free for a year, currently $0.99/ year afterwards.

Version 2.12.5 brings:

• Per chat custom notification settings and mute
• You can now include videos in your chat backups in Settings > Chats and Calls > Chat Backup
• Mark chats as unread or read with a swipe to the right
• Better support for VoiceOver
• Directly share contacts from the Contacts app and locations from Apple Maps to WhatsApp
• Lower the data usage used during WhatsApp calls in Settings > Chats and Calls 
• Earlier messages now load automatically as you scroll chats
• Improved design for cropping photos and videos
• Location messages now use a large map thumbnail
