Released a few days ago, Facebook's new set of tools for content creators that comes as the Creator app is only available for iOS users for now. Described as "a one-stop shop for creators of all kinds," it should hit the Android platform in the coming months as well.

Facebook has been around for quite a long time, but there has never been enough original video content available for its users. However, this social networking giant has recently been taking measures to provide video content creators with the tools to create and monetize their works.

During the yearly VidCon online video conference that took place in June, Facebook promised to improve its support for video creators and for the businesses that use Facebook Live content to engage their customer base. Now, the Creator app comes with the following highlights:

  • Live Creative Kit for creating personalized live broadcasts by adding intros/outros, graphic frames, and custom stickers
  • Community Tab for centralized Instagram and Facebook comments, as well as messages from Facebook's Messenger app
  • Camera & Stories with fun effects and frames, as well as support for easy crossport of the content to other platforms
  • Insights for easy access to various metrics, including page, video, and fans analytics data

Sadly, only iOS users can enjoy the benefits of this software package for content creators. However, Android and Windows users can join the Facebook for Creators website where they can find resources and tips on creating videos and interacting with their fans. Unfortunately, Facebook revealed that the Android users who would like to use the Creator app will be able to do so in a few months, without mentioning an accurate date.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
