Create Booklet App Now Offers Custom Dark Mode

TheKeptPromise is proud to announce the release of Create Booklet 2 (v2.1), the #1 macOS app to create a real physical booklet of any size easily from PDF using any printer. Most people prefer sitting back and enjoying a physical book to leaning forward and squinting at a monitor. Reading stories, documents, poems, music, instructions, sermons, lyrics, etc. on paper is much easier on the eyes and handier. With Create Booklet transform a PDF or document into instructions for you and any printer to output and create a physical booklet.


Create Booklet performs it’s magic by making imposition (usually an arcane art only understood by a chosen few) easy. Imposition is one of the fundamental steps in the prepress printing process. It consists of the arrangement of the printed product’s pages, in order to obtain various sized booklets, faster printing, stitching, binding, cutting and reduction of paper waste.


“I facilitate writing workshops with different communities in a variety of settings: in libraries, universities, writing studios, and arts spaces for youth, adult learners, and marginalized folks. As part of these workshops, I create a final zine containing participants’ work and invite them to share their writing with an audience. I regularly use Create Booklet for all my workshops. It’s a serious time-saver. Create Booklet has resulted in a lot of happy community members.” – Fiona Raye Clarke


TheKeptPromise, CEO, Christoph Vogelbusch adds: “The world looks forward to Dark Mode in the macOS update Mojave coming this fall. We thought, why not make the Dark Mode style available in Create Booklet 2, today. So, Create Booklet can now display in Dark Mode customized with 2 tints, Aqua and Dark Aqua, running in the current macOS 10.13 (back to 10.10) but is also totally compatible with the future macOS 10.14 Mojave. Get the first taste of Dark Mode of Mojave by using Create Booklet today.”

Create Booklet takes this art and makes it available to use on any printer, by anyone, easily, for only $20 (USD).

Keep It 1.4 Adds Markdown Editing, Encrypted Items, and More

Reinvented Software is pleased to announce Keep It 1.4 is available today. This version adds Markdown editing and previewing, encrypted items, and word counts for notes and other editable text documents. The Mac version also gains the ability to open anything in a window, show margins for any editable text document opened in its own window, and navigate the history of viewed items.


Keep It is a notebook, scrapbook and organizer, ideal for writing notes, saving web links, organizing documents, and finding them again. Available on Mac, iPad and iPhone, Keep It is the destination for all those things you want to put somewhere, confident you will find them again later. Keep It is the successor to Together, a brand new app that preserves the very best of its predecessor, but recast for today and the future.


Keep It 1.4 has a dedicated Markdown editor on both Mac and iOS. This includes syntax highlighting, editing assistance for things such as headings, emphasis, links, images and lists, and a choice of styles for both editor and preview.


Individual items can now be encrypted with a password, and temporarily viewed with that password, Face ID or Touch ID (including on MacBook Pro with Touch Bar). Encrypted files in Keep It are Zip files that use AES-256 encryption and can also be opened in apps that support that format.


In Keep It 1.4 for Mac anything can now be opened in its own window (or tab), and for editable text documents opened in their own windows, Keep It can now show margins to constrain the width of the text to aid readability. Keep It can also show a word count and other statistics such as the number of characters, sentences and paragraphs in notes and rich text files in the format bar on Mac (needs High Sierra or later), or below the text on iPad and iPhone.


Keep It 1.4 also includes navigation history to move back and forth between viewed items on Mac, improved previews for video and audio files, improvements when importing mail messages, the ability to copy clickable links to lists, and many other improvements.


About Keep It:
Pretty much anything can be added to Keep It, including notes, web links, Markdown, rich and plain text documents, PDFs, images, or any other kind of file, using drag and drop, its share extension, the Services menu, or a browser bookmarklet. Keep It can also create new files of any type from stationery, and uses iCloud to make everything available across your devices and to share folders and items with others.


Keep It has all the organization tools you could need, including folders, tags, colored labels, and bundles. Keep It stores everything you add as files in folders that you can access in the Finder on Mac or the Files app on iOS 11, and open in other apps for editing. Saving files to these folders will automatically add them.


Building on Together, just about everything in Keep It has been improved or streamlined to work consistently across Mac and iOS, while taking advantage of each platform’s unique strengths. Keep It’s innovative tag filter that can drill down through combinations of related tags, and works in conjunction with search, which offers suggestions and makes it easy to combine terms. Keep It for Mac’s Compact Mode reduces the app to a single column, ideal for using as a floating window, or alongside another full screen app in split view, as you would on iPad.


Pricing and Availability:
Keep It for Mac 1.4 requires macOS 10.12 Sierra or later, and is available as a free 15-day trial. A license for Keep It for Mac costs $49.99 (USD), and will include all Keep It Version 1.x updates. Together 3 users can purchase a $24.99 upgrade, or get a free copy if Together 3 was purchased during its final 6 months on sale. Keep It is also available on the Mac App Store, also with a free trial, and a choice of one-time purchases to buy Keep It, upgrade from Together, along with monthly ($2.49) or yearly ($19.99) subscriptions. Keep It for iPad and iPhone is available separately with either monthly ($1.49) or yearly ($9.99) subscriptions.

Emulsio 3.0: 4K Video Stabilization to iPhone/iPad

Creaceed today is proud to announce the release and immediate availability of Emulsio 3.0, a major upgrade to their video stabilization app for iPhone and iPad. Emulsio 3.0 adds support for 4K videos as well as a better rolling shutter distortion correction including third-party sensors (drones, GoPro (TM), etc.). This release also features an updated user interface with improved support for modern iOS features.


Emulsio 3.0 lets users stabilize videos using specific image analysis technology, providing full control over the process. This makes it a great companion app to video content creators (YouTube, etc.), even when using third-party cameras or drones, which are fully supported. Emulsio stabilizes 4K videos, which are typically not processed even on latest devices. And for videos recorded with OIS (Optical Image Stabilization), Emulsio’s processing adds up to produce even smoother motion. The video can also be edited within the app; parts of it can be deleted or trimmed before final export. The user can compensate horizontal, vertical, rotational camera motion as well as rolling shutter distortion (wobble) which has been improved in version 3.0 with the possibility of adjusting the amplitude of correction depending on sensor. Emulsio comes with built-in preview to fine-tune results prior to final video export.


New features in 3.0:
* More accurate stabilization for 4K videos shot on device or from a third-party camera. 4K videos typically are not stabilized, but Emulsio lets you process them anyway.

* Rolling shutter distortion correction enhancement: amplitude of correction can be adjusted depending on sensor. Apple camera sensor values are provided, and third-party camera sensors can be calibrated within the app. Emulsio can now process videos from drones or GoPro(TM) cameras, including rolling shutter artifact correction.

* User interface has been refined to make stabilization settings easier to understand. Modern iOS features have been added or improved: Peek & Pop to preview videos from the import list (3D Touch on iPhone, long press on iPad), HEVC file handling (input / output), iPhone X, Drag & Drop and iPad multitasking.


Other features include:
* Non-destructive time editing
* Adjustable stabilization strength and motion intent (standard or cinematic)
* Stabilizer data reporting
* Black border handling
* Discontinuity handling in video stream
* iOS Photos extension to process videos directly in the Photos app.
* Live previewing & split-screen comparison of stabilized video vs. original one
* Frame by frame visualization of motion compensation and associated limits
* Optimized for 120 and 240 FPS videos
* Optimized for 64-bit devices
* Fast, GPU-optimized image processing to handle the video in a fraction of its duration


Pricing and Availability:
Emulsio 3.0 requires an iPhone or iPad running iOS 9.0 or later. It can be freely downloaded on the App Store, and is localized in 14 languages. The stabilization can be tried out as well as video editing features. Pro Pack 2 offers support for 4K videos, improved correction of rolling shutter distortion including third-party sensor calibration, and removal of the watermark. It can be purchased within the app for $7.99/8,99Euro. A special upgrade price of $3.99/4,49Euro is available for users who previously purchased Pro Pack 1. Pro Pack 1 users otherwise keep the features they already had (standard stabilization and watermark removal).
