2 ways to save webpage content with DraftPlus

DraftPlus can be a powerful tool to save information you found interesting from internet or you want to use later on.
If you copied text or images, you can paste them on a page and they become stickers, that can be further formatted.
Using the sticker settings panel, you can use images as fixed backgrounds, logos, etc.

Let’s have a look in more detail…

Method #1: Print the screen from web browser.
Once you saved a screenshot of your favorite web page, you can pickup the image from the iPad gallery and copy/paste on a page. If you have already on a page an input-image sticker, just double tap on it. If you want to create a completely new sticker, use the paste sticker option to create a new image item. The image can be adjusted later on to fit your needs.

Method #2: Copy an item directly.
On a web page, select the text or copy the image you like and then paste the content on the page. This method is more flexible, if you want to change the layout later on. Each sticker can become a hyperlink so you can re-create a navigation flow and build your own notebook.

Let’s have a look at some new features…

1) Bottom bar can be dragged accross the screen.The world map is now presented using the whole screen and you can move the menu bar vertically, so that it never covers the area you are working on.

3) TV output. If you have a cable or wi-fi connected, you can present the map on an external screen. When you navigate through the pages or you change the layout of the items, the external screen will present the changes.

Why all our Apps end with a “+”? ;)

We start developing with the idea of providing the same user experience to our customers.

Whether you are creating a world map or a presentation, if you know one App, you will know already how to use the others.

The menus, the actions, the way the content is structured, all follow the same logic, so after few taps, you are able to be up-to-speed in any scenario.

We put particular care into creating this smooth experience and you will see how easy it is to switch from one App to another, even without the need of a tutorial…

So we decided to identify with a “+” sign all those Apps that use the same user interface logic.

Display information on a map | Easiest way to do it

At morePaths.com we believe in the great potentials of the tablets as an everywhere tool to boost our productivity. Particularly we believe the iPad has the right capabilities to provide an excellent support for reporting,presenting and editing in general.WorldMap+

If you are  a manager or sales man, or you are somebody that travels a lot, and your office is most of the time an hotel, an airport lounge and you are supposed to be always ready to present, you will find among our Apps something that interests you.We are sure of this.

For example, talking about maps and presentations…

Displaying information on a map is very useful and effective.

If you work in a company that has world wide impact, whether  you are representing the company footprint or the sales,some technical data, if you put a map in your presentation, the message will be make easier to be communicated.

Maybe you need a map to present the brand presence in a particular region of the world or you need just to present the head quarters locations.Add a world map to your presentation

In all those cases a world map is what you want to have.

There are many places online where you can get a world map but most of them requires subscriptions or the level of customisation is not enough to make a clean and ready to se image.

Because the difference between a professional report (or presentation) and an everybody-can-do-it slide depends in fact on the way the spaces are used, the way the content merges with the additional information elements.

A map is an information attribute you want to add, BUT, it does not have to take the whole attention from the audience. IT needs to “melt” with the message. The audience needs to read the slide, get the information and “almost” forget that is looking at a map.

e.g. I read a sales report, i look at the red (low performance) geographic areas  and the green (higher sales). The map gives me an easy to read balance. Is there more read in Europe than in Asia? The rest of the slide will communicate where the focus needs to be.

So the world map needs to be clean and easy to read. no additional colours or shapes, no text that is not directly linked with the message we want to express, etc.

Most important, the map must be fully customisable and available off-line, so that you can work on your presentation just with your iPad anywhere you are.

Starting from the everyday work at the office, we designed two Apps for the iPad that make these editing/publishing tasks very useful.

WorldMap+WorldMap+

You create colourful world maps, in which you decide which countries needs to be presented and which colours to apply.An example of WorldMap+

If you need to present information purely based on text, this is the App you want to have on you iPad.

Just color the country, write a comment in the legend with related flag, print it or export it.

You can customise the background so that the image totally merges with the slide or report you are preparing.

This is an example of how easily you can build an effective slide ready to be inserted in a slide deck.WorldMap Plus

The App has also a reporting capability, meaning that you can create a presentation, based on world maps and text. The App will generate a PDF alternating maps and their related notes.

We always build our Apps having in mind that you need to be able to reuse the projects, so that you can execute your tasks quickly and with less effort.

Thematic PlusThematic+

Using this App, you create professional-look maps representing data related to ranges or Thematic+text. Using this App, you can comment data related to countries, present a brand presence world wide or comment some technical data.

The legend can present intervals or some text that you want to relate to the colours.

You can customise the background so that the image totally merges with the slide or report you are preparing.
Thematic+

The App is very flexible. You can select specific regions or apply the ranges to entire geographical groups such as Africa,Asia,etc.

In All Our Apps

For all our Apps we implement a logic of storing the information.

Each project you build can be stored, backed up, shared. You can group the projects per topics or per events, duplicate the projects, move a project from one group to another.Organising projects

People of your team , that have this App installed on their iPad, can receive your project and continue working on that, adding information, changing, and send you back the new version.

If you work with virtual teams across the world, you will find these functionalities very useful.

You can share and send files using encryption, so , even if you are not at your office, you can still share sensitive information, from places like airports or hotels.
