Kite Compositor


Kite Compositor

Have you undertaken the task to design the user interface for your app or website?

Well, you can use Kite Compositor to bring your designs to life in a heartbeat. You will be basically creating timeline animations and adding triggers to run those animations (via event, gestures, and more).

The cool thing about the tool is that it is pretty similar to After Effects where you are allowed to animate any element’s property that is in your mind.

Getting the hang of using Kite Compositor usually takes a short while, and you will be able to get more done within a shorter time frame in no time.

Disney, Dropbox, Uber, Google, and Facebook – what do they have in common?

Well, one of their similarities is that their developers have used Framer to prototype the many features you are using today and have grown pretty fond of.

This awesome tech tool is suitable if you are familiar with JavaScript or a similar programming language. It allows you to prototype complex interactions and high fidelity animations for mobile and desktop apps in a single place.

This means you will get a live preview of your prototype and it updates itself instantly!

Not a professional designer by day, but want to be like one when it comes to editing your photos and videos?

Try Fabby – your friendly neighborhood photo and video editing app for iOS.

Here’s how Fabby works: First, you shoot a video or snap a picture.

Next, you add a filter or change the background to something fancier. For instance, you can add a background blur so that it looks as though you are using an expensive camera.

Or you can add motion effects to your videos. For selfie lovers, you will also find Fabby to be a great photo and video editing app!
