The on the go solution for posts taht works across platforms and formats

What do you like best?

ease of use combined with useful templates. cross-platform use. it allows for various levels of expertise, from beginner to expert. the interface is easy to understand

What do you dislike?

limited to mobile devices and web browsers makes this a difficult option for professionals. bit prescriptive at times. and sometimes clunky. the cost from Adobe is very high and it is the single biggest issue I have

Recommendations to others considering the product

this is a cool piece of software that allows anyone to create posts across platforms. it is easy to use and has the basics of a great post. it allows for customisation and varying degrees of control. There are versions for mobile and desktop which help in the long run. once you get stuck in you need to plan ahead before you start to ensure that you don't lose yr momentum.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

easy to deploy a force of content creators out on the field that can create content on the fly. the content is relevant and unique which makes it highly sale-able. the user can deploy this app on their own personal device and create from anywhere.

Excellent tools for designers

What do you like best?

Spark has excellent tools to create social graphics, videos and storytelling presentations in just a few minutes and with satisfying and professional results. In particular, Spark Page allows you to create web pages of great visual impact with the insertion of texts, images and photo galleries.

What do you dislike?

You could insert more layouts to choose from, and I mean both Spark Page and Spark Post or Spark Video, because this would increase the chances of differentiating your work from that of others.

Recommendations to others considering the product

These are excellent tools that offer professional results in no time, to create social graphics (Facebook, Instagram), videos (even for YouTube) or web pages of presentation or to create a storytelling. There is still a little something, but I recommend using it.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use mainly Spark Page and Spark Post to create graphics to be used on Facebook or Instagram, or web pages of presentation for my clients, when above all there is to present a new product.

So Simply, No Instructions Necessary

What do you like best?

Like the title suggests, you can set a class of tech-savvy students to this app without instructions, and with a little work, can create a product in 30 minutes. Utility is nice, and creativity isn't completed sacrificed, even though the options are limited (to preserve that simplicity)

What do you dislike?

Though creativity isn't completely sacrificed, full creativity, especially with the "blank canvas" is not this tools strength. Customizing this to share is not the easiest, for example the ability to rename the URL to be able to easily share.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Think of an easy way to create a presentation, video, or social media post, with simply and creative tools to create these things. I primarily use this tool as turn-in assignments for my course, which includes a journal, self-studies, and a final portfolio. I am working currently on implementing into my soft skills course, so students can present their spark page to a potential employer.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I teach a course that requires a final portfolio. I struggled with how a student should turn this in until I found Adobe Spark. Now I have a paper-less product plus something that can shared to others. I also require a journal. When the students first share their spark link with their first journal entry, they do not have to share that link again when they finish their second journal entry. I only need the link once to grade all their journal entries.

Video, social posts and storytelling

What do you like best?

Adobe Spark is a web application that can be used to create web presentations, videos or social posts, in a very simple way and starting the work with ready-to-use graphic layouts.

What do you dislike?

I think the layouts are still few and maybe it would be useful to be able to use their own fonts within the projects. In general, there could be more possibilities for personalization by the user.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It certainly offers fast and effective tools to create graphics, web presentations and videos starting from preset but editable layouts. It would need some more tools, but it is effective and can also count on the smartphone and tablet app.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

More than anything else I have created graphic posts that I have inserted on Facebook and Instagram. I have also often used Spark Pages for personal presentations to show to my clients.

Versatile Graphic and Page Creator

What do you like best?

I've used Adobe Spark for a handful of projects and believe in the versatility and power of this application. First of all it is very easy to use. You don't have to be a graphic designer or web language guru to create amazing looking projects. For example, rather than a boring black and white resume, I used Spark to create a resume/portfolio of my work that helped me stand out from the competition. With a few quick changes I duplicated the same page and used it as a full portfolio of my photography and video work to shop to potential clients. I can't count how many times I got complements as to how the page looked and questions if I could make pages for others.

You can use Spark to create graphics for social media, Pages for web journals/portfolios/anything you can think of, and even video content with its on editor.

Bottom line this is a great application for content creators and multimedia people who either don't have a ton of experience in the creative suites (Premier, Photoshop, Final Cut, Illustrator, web coding, etc.) or those who have a ton of smaller projects to shoot out and need it done quick.

The best part is how affordable it is. $10 a month pay as you go or $100 for a year for the full plan and they even have a free option that allows you to use most of the features of the program to test it out. The free plan doesn't expire so if that's all you need definitely give it a try!

What do you dislike?

So far nothing. Adobe support for this product has been great and they have been growing and expanding this since they have released it. Excited to see whats in store for the future.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Give it a try and see if it is what you are looking for. I would say it has the same graphic creation abilities as Canva with the added bonus of doing web pages.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Quick and easy portfolio creation. I can even curate pages specifically for different clients for my photography business. People love the personal touch and it can be a factor between landing a gig and not. Spark has also never made curating social media posts so easy.

A quick way to build narratives around projects

What do you like best?

Spark is incredibly easy to use. However, it produces catching presentations, which could be used to show projects and plans in a very effective way. Just choose one of the templates, put in text and pictures, and the presentation is done, with nice motion effects, parallax, and much more.

Moreover the app is accessible both from mobile platforms and a web-based interface on desktop and laptops computers. This kind of ubiquity amplifies its potential uses.

What do you dislike?

Simplicity comes at a cost, in this case the limited set of templates supplied by Adobe. In spite of this, the templates cover a wide range of styles, allowing everyone to put together a nice looking presentation in a very short time. Another limitation is that the presentations stays on a web space provided by Adobe, although it could be shared quite effectively from there, even as frame.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you need a fully personalised web-content, Spark could not be for you, since it relies on predefined templates and Adobe's web-hosting. If you need to quickly build narratives and show them in a reliable way, Spark is without any doubt a choice to consider. Its ease of use is also a great advantage in using it.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It helps in producing narratives, a great part of a creative effort in these days. They can be used for everything, from explaining design concepts to showing the contents and benefit of courses. Being hosted by Adobe, the presentations are always easily accessible online.
