Vebbler : Social Camera App

This is a sponsored post:

2 decades ago, mobile phones were in themselves a novel phenomenon. Zip past to 2014 and smart has been the way to go. We are literally getting ‘smart’er by the day, aren’t we? Smart phones, smart glasses, smart watches and an entire gamut of ‘smart’ gadgets.

So when the founder of Vebbler connected with me to check out their social camera app, I was intrigued to know its use-case and how it stood against other photo-sharing apps in the market. When I spoke to them, I was impressed with the way they are presenting themselves and how unique this app really is. I must add, being a new kid on the block, it was very interesting to see what Vebbler had to offer. Once it launches; I am sure they will be able to reach where they desire to be – to offer a fresh look to the way we share photos from our phones in real-time instantaneously. In tech specific terms it’s a camera first application for collaborative group photo-sharing in real-time.

Why Webydo’s Sweeping The Design Industry With Its Code-Free Parallax Scrolling Animator.

Sponsored Post.

Parallax scrolling has skyrocketed in popularity since 2013 and is starting to become every designer’s top choice for creating a site. Parallax, paired with spellbinding animation with potentially endless scrolling, makes content king, and keeps visitors engaged and coming back for more.
Webydo’s 97K designer’s community voted and their team has created the first pixel-perfect, code-free Parallax Scrolling Animator. With it, not only can you implement this amazing feature on your website, but you can finally do so without writing a single line of code.

After a successful month in its closed-beta trial, Webydo has released their Parallax Scrolling Animator, code-free to designers to create pixel-accurate sites for their clients. This comes at an exciting time for designers, as they are now privy to all the design features available on the market, but completely code-free so they can enjoy more creative freedom.

What is Parallax Scrolling Animation?
The theory behind the technique is quite simple and grew out of the multi-plane camera used in traditional animation since the early 30s. The application in computer graphics was popularized after the 1982 arcade game Moon Patrol. By having the background images move by the camera slower than foreground images, the developers of yore managed to create a greater illusion of depth in the 2D video games and add to the immersion and the gamer’s experience.

To apply this same technique in a web page we make the different elements of the web page move at different rates (or remain static) when a user scrolls up or down the page.
Unfortunately the practical application of the effect is not as simple as it sounds. The Parallax Scrolling effect as you can imagine requires a heavy amount of JavaScript/jQuery code to implement it. And if your code isn’t well-optimized or well-written you will probably ruin the users experience with very slow page load times. So your whole effort will backfire and be wasted.

Webydo is a cloud-based design studio, where you can manage, design and create professional websites efficiently, through a WYSIWYG interface.

Move elements individually as the user scrolls through the page creating motion and the illusion of depth.
Set motion paths, opacity, rotation and speed for the various objects as well as define the scrolling events.
Design visually and have full control of the design process from start to finish.

MakeWebVideo – Produce Your Professional Business Video in 30 Minutes

(Sponsored post)

It is a well-known fact that the attention span of users on the web is even shorter than that of real-life. On the web you only have a couple of seconds to make an impression and grab the site visitor’s attention before they move away. In such an environment – the use of a professionally produced video is most certainly a great way to promote anything – from a product to a service to a brand. And in an era predominantly characterised by self-publishing, the idea of a simple yet powerful software that can enable the less tech-savvy among us to produce their own video is an enticing proposition.

MakeWebVideo logo

This is where MakeWebVideo comes in. This web-based tool is marketed as one which enables any user to produce their own professional HD quality business video in just 30 minutes. And if that is not enough, MakeWebVideo also enables easy creation of stunning 3D effects – all at a fraction of what it would cost to have it done by a professional videographer.


Creating a Professional Video Using MakeWebVideo

True to the site’s promise, creating a video using MakeWebVideo involves 3 straighforward steps:

Step 1 – Choose Your Template: After clicking the ‘Get Started’ button, select 1 video template which you feel would be ideal for your objectives.

Step 2 – Customize It: according to your needs. MakeWebVideo offers several customizations including the ability to change the graphics, music and text of the template that you have chosen.

Step 3 – Download Your Video: Although you would need to register with the site or use Google account to log in, the video that you have created is absolutely free to use. The only drawback is that it is of a lower quality and contains a watermark. Yet you would still be able to download and share it. To obtain the HD quality video, you would need to pay for it.
