From organizing ideas to creating beautiful photos, this week’s app round has a little for everyone.
CloudClip Manager 1.2
With support for a wide range of templates, the app quickly converts structured text into full-blown slide decks, and then lets you present them in full-screen mode.
Draft Control 1.1.1
As you type in your work, the app—free with a $20 in-app purchase that unlocks all its features—records changes, allowing you to review the document’s history, and even to compare two different versions to highlight changes between them.
Among other changes, the $15 video-editing software can now sort events by date; use fonts of different size, type, and color in titles; and crop and rotate clips in events.
The app works with a simple but powerful timeline-based interface, and can export to HTML5 for viewing in a browser.
Glam Software’s $10 Outlinely sits at the intersection between a text editor and an outline maker.
The app allows you to type free-flowing text in list format, which it then turns into an outlined list that supports Markdown-style syntax.
iFunia Studio’s PhotoCollage creates beautiful collages from your favorite photos.
The app allows you to choose from a variety of templates, and can import images in several popular formats.
Developer David Yuan’s $3 Portrait makes quick work of retouching your photos to eliminate small imperfections, giving you professional-quality results with little effort.
The app offers a number of automated tools that help hide small imperfections on a subject's skin, bring out the crispness in eyes, and improve the color grading of teeth and complexions.
Bits and bytes
Adobe’s ever-popular $80 Photoshop Elements has been updated to version 12, which comes with a number of improvements, including content-aware fills, “pet-eye” reduction, and many professional-grade effects.
