Easy to use, great for a wide range of ages and makes design easy are some phrases I use to describe Adobe Post. Adobepost Along with Adobe Voice and Slate, Post is part of the suite of apps that Adobe gives away for free in exchange for an Adobe ID setup by you. However, all these products are really great and Adobe Post is no exception. Post is a fairly simple app designed for the iPhone, and if you don’t mind, an odd looking version for the iPad. To use the app, you open it up, pick a template then hit the remix button. Three button choices follow you there: Design, Palette  and Photo. You can add a photo, add some text, change some colors and you have a great little poster. A nice way to make a fast Happy Birthday! card for someone and send it to them via social media. For teachers, though, there are better uses.  I find Adobe Post one of the best ways to make an enhanced image to add to an Adobe Voice, iMovie or Adobe Slate project. It really gives you a chance to discuss the importance of imagery, color, text and more. As with other Adobe products mentioned, this one too has a built in search engine for creative commons images. This is one my favorite aspects of using these products. It integrates easily with other Adobe services.

Do I Plan To Use It?

I use it now with grades two and three. Need to spread it up the food chain to grades four and five as well. So awesome.

Commitment And Learning Curve

This one is really easy to use. Right away you are making great art. Now, of course, making art that follows good design takes more work.
