Loose Leaf - App Review



A picture is worth a thousand words; although some wordsmiths may well disagree, for the rest of us mortals, it is probably true. 'Loose Leaf' perhaps sees itself as your gateway to using various types of pictures to help communicate or also to help represent things in your mind's eye.

Now for the ACIDS test:

Aesthetics
It's perhaps easiest to take you from a blank page and introduce the tools... this isn't necessarily the order in which you would actually use the App.

Use your finger to write anything you wish, in a variety of colours, and rub out as required.

Having given the App access to your photos, you can import them into the App. The nifty part is that you can crop them, again with a finger movement (so there is no restriction to rectangles). You can then use two fingers to move the cropped part.

A brilliant part of this is that if you move the cropped image to the edge of your page, it effectively becomes another tool, and will appear as sun on a blank page, thereby making it easy to use the cropped image on another page.

Shaking any scrap image will change the layer on which it is, they giving you control over the 'depth' of any given image; this is great for collages.

Once you have a number of pages in your scrapbook, you need to pinch the whole page to get access to all the pages me then pick the one you wish to edit.

You can easily export your images to a multitude of social media sites, including Facebook and Twitter.

Cost
Unbelievably, you get all this for $0 (absolutely free).

Indispensability
Indispensable? Probably not. Useful? Absolutely.

Dependability
This is an iPad only App.

Although the App can be used in both portrait and landscape modes, the tools remain as for portrait; this isn't actually a problem.

Security
The linking to social media is the usual double edged sword.
