Adobe® presented today a new software: Adobe® Edge. The big discussion of ‘Apple’s products not allowing flash content’ might have an end with a new generation of Design tools using HTML5 as the main framework.
Adobe® Edge promise to bring animations for graphics and text to devices that before were denied on the web browsers, like iPhone and iPad. This is a great move from the guys of Adobe. We are pretty sure that it might subject of the same critics of it’s partner software: Flash, after the amateurs designers filled the Web with cheesy and annoying animations, useless Flash intros and others practices that we want to put it on our past for ever.
Hopefully the new developers will embrace this tool as a helper for special parts of a website, and not as the main focus of it.
Motion and Interaction Design for HTML5
Edge will be updated regularly to add new functionality, stay ahead of evolving web standards, and incorporate user feedback to provide the best functionality and experience possible. This is an early look at Edge with more capabilities to come.
