Apple iAd Producer Update now Available

November 9, 2011, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

The iAd Producer has got an update. And if you are wondering what the iAd Producer is, it is Apple’s developer-oriented design tool that allows easy creation of high-quality, interactive content for the company’s iAd platform.

The iAd Producer is basically an HTML and CSS layout application that was released last year in December. The application automatically looks over the technologies present behind iAd, that is CSS 3, JavaScript and HTML 5, in order to offer a visual aid in the design of animate ads with an easy-to-use interface.

Developers cam make use of the iAd Producer to create and re-use their own page templates and components and for other processes like managing the structure and flow of iAds for specific iOS devices in a single window UI. The update rolled out brings some changes to the animation section and an enhanced editor is added along with Project Validation and a new Object List.

The new Project Validation checks the size and type of image assets and that pages and components are configured correctly. It also checks whether iAd has been built correctly before its submission to Apple and also looks for performance issues and other errors.

The addition of the Object List provides one click access to all the objects or elements in a single page. The iAd Producer’s animation tools also get a wide library of effects and animations including wipes, fades, spinning effects, cube transitions.

You can download the iAd Producer from Apple’s website if you are interested.
