CONCEPT: An easy to use tool for gathering multimedia content in one place.
DELIVERY: Functioning like a scrapbook for the iPad generation, ClipUp allows users to collate various files and links onto a digital tile board. You can include images, videos, audio recordings, text notes, weblinks and map links on your board, with no limit to the amount of content you can gather. Images can also be batch imported in fives to save time.
The app has a great aesthetic and the interface is simple and incredibly user-friendly. Adding items is a simple matter of clicking on the relevant icons anditems can be drag and dropped to move them around the board and sequence as desired.
Upon completion, boards can be displayed in full screen via Airplay or shared via email or social media if desired. There's also the ability to set a reminder alarm for a board, though to be honest, I can't quite see the use of this.
LIMITATIONS: It would be nice to be able to add a set of images to one tile as a mini-slideshow rather than spread them across individual tiles on the board.
CONCLUSION: The clean layout and user-friendly interface make this a good choice for students to collate and share multimedia content. 4/5
