On Deck: The New Flex Interface

I haven't written anything about the new Flex/Flash interface yet, I think it's time to catch everyone up on what's been going on behind the scenes at Empressr.

You have seen the new features being added to the web site, but not much to the editor (Composr). Launching this September is a completely rewritten Flex based editor for v3.

The main reason for the rewrite is to make the user experience a much more engaging one, we think we nailed that! The user interface is intuitive, beautiful and quite elegant, it works more like a desktop app, and the speed has been increased by using remote procedure calls.

Empressr's strength has always been how it utilized rich media; we have been expanding those capabilities and the new Composr takes true advantage of this, with quick searching of your library, expanded meta data, drag and drop from the Library to the Stage, and quick filtering by media type. All these features make Empressr a dream to create with. We'll update you on the new and updated features that will come with the new Flex UI in the coming weeks.
