Adobe launch voice storyteller features in ipad

Now adobe bring a new feature for ipad user, add with motion graphics, animated video clip and HD output without having any special skill or training to design it in new form. Adobe now replaced the power point presentation alignment; a user can easily design their own sheet in the power point format and send it to their closer with both audio and video element on it. The main concern of Adobe is to target students, educator and businesses because they need to build their message in flawless artistic look.

It assembled to persuade your receiver with marvelous foundation of motion graphic and video’s effect to inform viewers.

Adobe Voice

Main concern of adobe:

 

Though the final story is output in video format, Voice does not work with video per se; rather presentations are a mix of stills, schematics, text, recorded voice and background audio tracks. You touch the screen to record voiceovers one line at a time with background music automatically added.(Read Also:- The Best 7 iOS Apps from April)

One user’s statement that he or she got a chance to operate this app to record motion clip prior on launched; and I found that it is as friendly as promised earlier by the team. The app accomplishes the curate video feed to offer; the programming keeps a user steps with ease to design their first presentation and message.

Adobe launches Voice for iPad

Voice feature keep a user own artist and provide them an arena for story arc to create a strong and an impressive message art. When a person draws an individual page means each page has the feature of voice recording to explain what page want to tell you. You can create some picture galleries within each page otherwise take it from your own collection; adobe itself provide licensed picture to its user if does not have any gallery. Play button provide you an opportunity to see a page anytime.

Adobe Layout

World class feature include in adobe voice storyteller app:

 

  • Built in 30 pleasing and outstanding theme
  • Eye catchy color, font and graphics are tied with 30 professional back tracks.
  • There’s a theme for almost any kind of presentation from the bold colors of Argyle to the casual style of Light or the subtle and sophisticated Satin.
  • Voice dynamically applies cinematic graphics to stories in real time, including motion blur, 3D, shadows and other professional effects.
  • More than 25000 professionally built icons and million licensed icons are available with it.
  • Adobe Voice, which is in English only, works on ipad 2 and later running ios 7.

Adobe Voice Note

User needs not to worry how it will look; it solely frees them from this concentration. The credit and attribution page automatically update with each pages, so the icons is adorable or not. It will remove extra worry how to add proper credit or art on right presentation.

Adobe says.

 

“While Voice is primarily designed as a standalone app for storytelling, pro designers can also use it as a sketchbook for structuring professional projects”

When your project will have completed then you can forward it via social networking site and it could be viewed on almost any device.

JAVA 8 FEATURES

Java 8 launched today and it’s a groundbreaking release since Java 1.2. Although Java 5 brings big features but Java 8, as a whole, is really an enormous step for the Java language and platform.

Java 8 is the first truly revolutionary release we’ve done in a very long time

– Mark Reinhold (chief architect of the Java Platform)

Formal support of Lambda expressions, the Stream API and Functional Interfaces are spectacular improvements to java platform that allows developers to take advantage of multicore processors. Other than that new Date Time API, new JavaScript Engine, Compact Profiling, annotations and concurrency enhancements are impressive improvements.

Java 8

Java 8 Features

Language and Platform Features

  • Lambda Expressions

    Aka closures, enable developers to encapsulate a single unit of behavior and pass it to other code. Its like syntactic sugar for an anonymous class (with one method whose type is inferred) and is an object-less method or anonymous method. Its the most dominant feature of Java 8 and will have great implications for simplifying development. Behind the seen it is not an anonymous class; it actually uses invokedynamic in the byte-code.

  • Stream & Bulk Data Operations

    Represents a sequence of objects, somewhat like the Iterator. However, unlike the Iterator, it supports parallel execution. Classes in the new java.util.stream package provide a Stream API to support functional-style operations on streams of elements. The Stream API is integrated into the Collections API, which enables bulk operations on collections, such as sequential or parallel map-reduce transformations.

  • Functional Interface

    Its defined as an interface with exactly one (non default) method. This concept also applicable to interfaces that were created with earlier Java version. Java 8 comes with several functional interfaces in package,java.util.function.

  • Method Reference

    As its title are reference to some method. Java 8 allow developers to refer any existing method  or anonymous method (Lambda) as well. Method references can point to static methods, instance methods, particular object/instance methods and constructors.

  • Default Method

    Aka Defender Methods or Virtual Extension methods, now adds support for multiple inheritance in java(multiple inheritance of implementation more precisely). It help API authors to add new methods to an interface without breaking the old code that already using the actual interface.

  • Type Annotations

    (Annotations on Types) extends the set of annotatable locations, now developers are allowed to use annotations along with the use of a type. This new ability is primarily aimed at supporting type-checking frameworks that refine Java’s built-in type system.

  • Repeating Annotations

    These  provide the ability to apply the same annotation type more than once to the same declaration or type use. Improve the readability of source code which logically applies multiple instances of the same annotation type to a given program element.

  • Generalized Target-Type Inference

    It expands the scope of method type-inference to support (1) inference in method context and (2) inference in chained calls. Now developers need not to manually specify type-parameters on chained callas, method call in some expressions.

  • Method parameter reflection

    provide a mechanism to easily and reliably retrieve the parameter names of methods and constructors at runtime via core reflection. It allow to improve IDE capabilities by making parameter names more widely available.

  • New Date/Time API

    is thread-safe, easier to read, and more comprehensive than the previous API. It will make developers more productive, whether they are using the global date and time standards or one of the regional calendars.

  • Base64

    encoding/decoding provides a standard built-in API for encoding/decoding resources. URL Base64 Encoder provides an encoding that is URL and Filename safe.

  • Compact Profiles & Small VM

    allow developers to use just a customized subset of the platform, and is a major step toward the merging of Java SE and Java ME. It opens horizons to work on the smallest embedded Internet of Things (IoT) devices to enterprise servers in the cloud. Small VM feature support the creation of a small VM that is no larger than 3MB.

  • Nashorn

    replaces Rhino as the default JavaScript engine and intend to provide a version of JavaScript that would run as part of JVM. The new script engine allow to import packages, use and even extend Java classes inside JavaScript,  and invoke JavaScript functions directly from Java as well.

  • PermGen

    removed from the Hotspot JVM. Class meta-data in native memory and move interned Strings and class statics to the Java heap. The code for the permanent generation in the Hotspot JVM will be removed.

  • JavaFX 8

    is now available for ARM platforms. JavaFX is now integrated in Java SE, developers can use the java command-line launches JavaFX applications. It also allow developers to embed Swing content into JavaFX applications.

  • Miscellaneous

    There are many other new concepts and improvements in the platform like Concurrency  API improvements, preparation for modularization (Jigsaw), Statically-Linked JNI Libraries, Parallel Array Sorting, Internationalization improvements,  JDBC-ODBC Bridge removal, addition of new tools, enhancements in some existing tools  and many more.

  • Backports

    for some of these exciting features are available in market. If due to some reason application can’t immediately be upgraded to Java 8, developers can still spice their code with these exciting features to previous versions of Java. For each of the following features, here is the backport or similar library:

Variadic Objective-C Functions ( variable function parameters )

What are variadic functions?

Well, to be honest, I wasn’t exactly sure the name of these kinds of functions for years after I started programming. Just knowing the terminology will make your life a lot easier when googling for this same kind of thing in different programming languages.

In computer programming, a variadic function is a function of indefinite arity, i.e., one which accepts a variable number of arguments. Support for variadic functions differs widely among programming languages. (stolen from Wikipedia)

In the simplest of terms, it is a function that takes any number of arguments vs a function that takes a defined number of arguments.

iOS Library usage

There are multiple places that you run into variadic functions when doing iOS development. They are fairly simple to understand and use. The variable parameter can contain a comma seperated list of values and must be Nil terminated. Example below demonstratest creating a UIAlertView without any syntax

UIAlertView* alert = [[UIAlertView alloc] initWithTitle:@"Title"
                                                message:@"Message"
                                               delegate:nil
                                      cancelButtonTitle:@"Cancel"
                                      otherButtonTitles:@"OK", @"Ignore", nil];

Implementing your own Variadic function

Using these functions is simpler than creating your own function that accepts a variable parameter. Much of the syntax and usage is inherited from C, so it may seem a little bit foreign if Objective-C is all you know. Example below demonstrates sorting any number of NSString’s.

-(NSArray*) sort:(NSString*) values, ...

    NSMutableArray* sortableItems = [[NSMutableArray alloc] init];
 
    if( values == nil )
        return sortableItems;
    
    va_list args;
    va_start(args, values);
    
    NSString* str = values;
    do
    
        [sortableItems addObject:str];
    
    while( (str = va_arg(args,NSString*)) );
    
    va_end(args);
    
    return [sortableItems sortedArrayUsingSelector:@selector(caseInsensitiveCompare:)];

Explanation

The first thing to notice is the method definition. This is just syntax, but the ... signifies that this is a variable argument. The second thing is the nil check, values will always be a pointer to the first element of the variable argument, if the first element is nil we simply return an empty array.

The c-style stuff comes into play when you reach the va_list line. It is pretty simple, but you create a va_list and start reading from that list using va_start. I used a do , while loop because the va_arg function will move the pointer, and I wanted access to the first item. After you are done, of course, call va_end.

That’s all there is to making variadic functions in iOS

You can run simple tests or perform advanced testing including multi-step transactions, video capture, content blocking and much more. Your results will provide rich diagnostic information including resource loading waterfall charts, Page Speed optimization checks and suggestions for improvements.

Nobody Likes a Slow Website

We built this Website Speed Test to help you analyze the load speed of your websites and learn how to make them faster. It lets you identify what about a web page is fast, slow, too big, what best practices you’re not following, and so on. We have tried to make it useful both to experts and novices alike.

In short, we wanted it to be a easy-to-use tool to help webmasters and web developers everywhere optimize the performance of their websites.

Before your customers enter your ecommerce store, they’re waiting for it to load. Page load time is the lapsed time between the moment a user requests a new page and when that page is fully rendered by the browser. Reducing page load times can reduce bounce rates and increase conversion rates.

Here is a free tools to test your page load time. There are simple speed tests, comprehensive tests with simulated traffic from around the globe, and multiple-site tests for head-to-head comparisons. Several of these tools offer suggestions to improve a site’s performance.Screen Shot 2014-03-25 at 10.59.12 AM.png
