The text to speech engine is so powerful, it reproduces speech which is clear and natural sounding.

Copy emails, documents, web pages, PDF files, and more; paste them into Speak it!, and have the text spoken back to you with the highest quality text to speech engine available anywhere. You can even create the same quality audio files of the text to speech which can then be emailed to anyone you like! Need an elegant way to make announcements over your PA system?

Das neue Pages auf dem Mac kann nun weniger, positiv betrachtet könnte man es als Konzentration aufs Wesentliche bezeichnen. Dafür hat die iPad App dazugewonnen. Dort kann jetzt ohne den Umweg über den Desktop direkt ins ePub Format exportiert werden. Interessant für Szenarien, in denen Schüler iPad basiert arbeiten und nun direkt ihr ePub haben. Oder um eine per Mail bekommene Wor-Datei gleich in ein auf dem Gerät lesabares Format für utnerwegs umzuwandeln. Toll.

“ Seeneis a clever and free iPhone app that lets you capture an object or person in three dimensions. It's not the 3D you get from taking two images that are horizontally displaced, but instead you move left and right, up and down while the camera is running, which produces an image that you can explore from different angles by either moving your phone or swiping your finger on the image.” If you like the result, you can share your image through a web portal, or upload it to Twitter or Facebook. The 3D images can be viewed on most modern browsers that support WebGL, including Safari, Chrome and Firefox. iTunes Store link: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/seene/id698878590?mt=8

    3. LICENSE MANAGEMENT FOR APPS

    Schools will now be able to assign apps to users wirelessly while keeping full ownership and control over the app licenses. It's flexible, too: Apps can be revoked at will and reassigned to other students. (Apple's new volume purchasing program also supports the purchase of Mac apps and books, so its impact stretches beyond iOS devices.)

    Wednesday's release of iOS7 — the next generation of Apple's mobile operating system — will be a free download and will work on all iPads (including the iPad mini) except for the original model released in 2010. (Note that while iOS7 is installable on these models, not every one of its features will be available on every model.) Those holding out for new iPad hardware will have to wait a bit — new models are expected before the end of the year.

    Kindle for iOS7 Lets Readers Group eBooks into Collection

    Kindle for iOS7 Lets Readers Group eBooks into Collection | iPad:  mobile Living, Learning, Lurking, Working, Writing, Reading ... | Scoop.it

    I’ve been playing with the new app for a little while and it is pretty cool. It follows the latest trend in interface design and offers a flatter interface, an enjoyable change for those of us who didn’t care for the faux 3d effect. Amazon has also changed the slide-out menus so they are now translucent, thus enabling you to see a fuzzy view of whatever is under the menu. I’m not sure what this adds but I suppose Amazon was going for the coolness factor.

    This app also includes the usual bug fixes and performance enhancements, but the most important change is the new Collections feature. Readers can now organize their ebook library into collections with just a few taps.
