Our long-awaited app is in the final stages of beta testing, and the release date is approaching quickly. The Glogster team is hard at work ensuring that all our great new features are available to users in perfect working order as soon as possible. We can’t wait to share the finished product with you, but for now we can proudly show you the first ever images of our all-new iPad interface.

Home screen

The sleek home screen allows you to view, share and edit your own glogs, create new content, or browse the Glogpedia library, all with a simple touch. Tap the thumbnails to access and edit information about your glogs, or open them in the editor. Saving a finished glog or work in progress will return you to this screen and seamlessly sync your edits with your online account.

The Web picker

The integrated Web picker feature allows you to easily drag media onto your canvas from our preset Youtube, Google Images, Google Video and Khan Academy bookmarks, or anywhere else on the web via the search function. Instant access to photos, videos and text from around the internet, without the hassle of uploading files or copying URLs, gives your glog limitless possibilities.

Glogpedia

The Glogpedia browser puts knowledge from classrooms around the world at your fingertips. An easy-to-navigate menu makes it quicker than ever to get the information and inspiration you need, from templates and lesson planning materials to exemplary student glogs on history, science, math, languages, art and more.

We hope that you enjoy and share this preview of great things soon to come – keep an eye on our Twitter, Pinterest and Facebook pages for more updates.

      • Hi Rachel, the application will be free to download as an enhancement of the product within our current pricing system – it will be available to any user with a standard Glogster account at no added cost.

  1. I love the way you have the web picker and glogopedia. My students are younger and I think they will find both extra helpful when creating their animal glogs this year on iPads!

  2. Last year my school closed our computer labs and went to 1:1 iPads for each student. I can’t wait to use the Glogster App. The features look great! I’ve missed you, Glogster…welcome back to my classroom!

  3. I can’t wait to try this app out! Our class should be 1 to 1 with iPads by next school year. In the meantime my students can use my iPad.

  4. I think this looks great . I have used Glogster extensively on the PC with my students and they have really enjoyed combining text, movie clips and images in colourful presentations. This new app will make it possible for the students in my new school which is an ipad school to use Glogster as it has become quite slow on the PC now at my school.

  5. I’m wondering about pricing…

    Will it be like the old platform where you buy a subscription for a classroom/school?
    Or will the app have a fee per iPad?

    • The application will be free to download on the app store. The Glogpedia browser will be available without logging in, but users will need to log in via a Premium (paid) account in order to access the full compliment of features.
