Ottawa, ON - August 02, 2011 -- Corel today announced the launch of its Summer Appventure, featuring four, new, free apps designed to help families make the most of their summer vacations. With new apps for the iPhone®, iPad®, Mac® and PC, there's something for everyone. Whether families are packing up the car, heading for the airport or planning holiday time closer to home, Corel's new apps make it easy for everyone to make the most of their vacation moments.
Keep the kids entertained for hours as they flex their creative muscles
Beep Beep: Convert your iPad into the perfect digital coloring book for a no-mess, creative distraction while you're on the road or flying through the air. Rather than zoning out with a DVD, kids can explore their creativity and create vibrant, fridge or Facebook-ready masterpieces with an array of colors and sample images to choose from.
Share your vacation adventures with family and friends
Slingshot™ : Capture those once in a lifetime moments on your iPhone and automatically share them in real-time with customized groups of family and friends, or send them straight to a selected Facebook album. All of your photos are automatically backed up to a private Facebook photo album so you'll always have peace of mind.
Postcard: Forget crowded tourist shops and searching for postage stamps. With Corel® Postcard, it's easy to create and send personalized postcards using your iPhone. Snap that perfect moment, add your greeting, and automatically send your printed postcard anywhere in the world for just $0.99 (USD). There's no faster, easier or more personal way to say "Wish you were here!"
Sort your favorite photos in record time and relive those vacation memories
QuickSort: Quickly sort your top holiday photos and select your favorites. With QuickSort, it's faster than ever to reduce the hundreds, if not thousands, of digital images you captured on the road and isolate your very best shots. Using QuickSort for Mac or Windows, you can rapidly sort your photos into "good" and "best" folders with the tap of a keystroke. Not only will QuickSort save you valuable time, you may even free up some hard drive space!
