Adobe has announced a new set of tools for website designers and developers called Adobe Edge. We use Adobe Creative Cloud here at kc web design Kent so it’s always nice to get hold of some new website design apps. The new suite of web design and development apps is aimed purely at web designers and focus on specific web design tasks such as coding, creating CSS3 animations, serving web fonts and responsive web design.
The full suite of apps in the new Adobe Edge range of tools for web designers are –
- Edge Animate (CSS3 animations)
- Edge Reflow (Responsive web design)
- Edge Code (Code editor)
- Edge Inspect (Was Adobe Shadow – previewing sites on mobile devices)
- Edge Web Fonts (Free web fonts service like Google Fonts)
These new apps that a squarely aimed at web designers should be available to all Creative Cloud members soon although we checked this morning and they weren’t available in the Application Manager to download just yet. Fingers crossed they’ll appear soon.
The ones of most interest at the moment are the free web fonts, the code editor (although nothing will drag me away from Coda!) and the CSS3 animations (kc web design Kent has a big CSS animated project happening very soon so this will be interesting to use). Rumours are that Edge Reflow isn’t quite up to scratch yet but it is still in preview. If Adobe can get this app up to scratch then it could be very useful. Well have to wait and see.
As soon as we can get our hands on these new web design apps for testing we’ll write a review.
