Both the volume of content created and the number of Google searches performed on mobile devices has for a long time far exceeded the amount of those done on desktop computers. All of this information leads to the natural conclusion that mobile phones are outpacing desktop computers in importance and usage, leading consumers to expect more out of them. Some years back, it sufficed to simply and passively consume content on mobile devices, but today viewers have become more active and engaged with online mobile content, whether through adding striking effects and subtle filters, creating documents and videos, and publishing content on social media platforms. To meet these new developments, a brand new set of mobile apps has been created that allows users to manage and create digital content online and on mobile devices, breaking down barriers to make content more accessible and relevant. The following are some of these apps and what they can do.
Evernote has over the years grown to become among the most popular mobile applications for a whole generation of mobile phone users. In addition to allowing users to capture content, Evernote boasts a wide array of potent tools that lets users annotate, create and organize documents, checklists, and content into folders, respectively. Altogether, this allows for the creation of meaningful content enriched informationally. A close cross-platform alternative that offers greater cloud space by way of a Kdan Cloud solution is called NoteLedge, which allows users to synchronize all of their digital content.
Popular culture is full of animations, be they online or on the television or movie screen. However, with the ascendancy of mobile digital technology, animation is no longer exclusive to professional animators in studios but can be done right on a mobile phone with the help of the Animation Desk app. Now users can have some fun while creating unique pieces of art in only a matter of hours or even minutes. In addition to being personalized and user-friendly, Animation Desk is near entirely cross-platform and can be used on a variety of operating systems. There is even a dedicated online community called AniZone through which animators can share their work and participate in AniMagic, an annual animation contest.
As information has increasingly gone digital, the world has been steadily going paperless over the years. Yet still, reams of papers remain to be disposed of, sorted, and sifted through. For the modern content creator, who cannot afford to be encumbered by papers and folders, the Pocket Scanner app presents a nifty solution. With this app, digital content creators can simply scan the relevant documents, annotate them, and store them in the desired digital folder. The Pocket Scanner also connects to the cloud as well as to the aforementioned NoteLedge app.
Google Docs is a document-sharing app that can be accessed across multiple platforms. Going along with Google’s minimalistic layout, the mobile Google Docs app is user-friendly, simple, and equipped with a wide array of capabilities and possible operations that can be carried out. If users already happen to have a Google email account of their own, the Google Docs app is even more easily accessible, along with the various related apps that Google offers to its users.
Memes are online pieces of content that pass down, popularize, and relay ideas. The usual format of these is a snippet of a movie or other media with a caption, often a saying or popular phrase, that inserts a new context for the sake of humor or propaganda. Memes are nearly ubiquitous in today’s online world, where social media has become a veritable battleground of ideas, concepts, and opinions. The video editing app Invideo capitalizes on this trend to offer users a meme editor which provides templates and makes making memes as easy as captioning the templates that have been provided. In no time flat, new users can be spreading viral ideas and content across multiple social media platforms.
The modern on-the-go digital content creating professional cannot afford to be tied down to a desktop computer or laptop for long periods of time. The mobile applications mentioned previously solve this dilemma and provide users with portable and convenient tools to tackle new projects and realize new ideas from almost anywhere with greater productivity and fun.
