Adobe just released a new visual storytelling app last week named "Slate". We are surprised there are so many similarities between their design, and ours.
Adobe is a big player, their move into this space is a yet another marketing validation rather than a competition. I always think that the term 'competitors' means they are in a similar scale, and in this case we are definitely not. It might mean they thought Pixotale was the best in the class, otherwise how could they have reimplemented so many similar design details?
Here is a few screenshots side by side:
There are several other visual storytelling apps in the market. e.g. Storehouse, Steller, both has great and unique designs. Adobe chose to learn those detail from Pixotale instead of from others, which means they might think we are the best in design, I am truly flattered.
Here is our product Pixotale:
And here is Adobe Slate:

Feel free to try both and experience yourself to see how similar they are, especially the authoring experience.
We are working hard on the next major 2.0 release, and look out, Adobe Slate, there are a lot more to get inspired from!
