When Logitech launched its Craft keyboard last fall, its signature dial already packed out-of-the-box support for Microsoft's Office 365 suite and several Adobe apps. Now, Logitech has announced an additional slate of apps will now support the Surface Dial-like input mechanism. Additionally, more developers will now be able to freely create their own app-specific plugins with a dedicated Software Development Kit (SDK) (via The Verge).
The app likely to garner the most attention is Adobe Lightroom Classic CC, which now allows you to use the Craft's dial to "easily access up to 11 different photo editing tools." These range from things like saturation and tint to contrast and shadows, Adobe says. A tap of the dial can change functions, while a turn changes the value for that function.
Additionally, Windows users will now be able to use the dial with Adobe Reader DC and VLC Media Player. In Adobe Reader DC, the dial can be used to zoom, change the page, or scroll horizontally. VLC, meanwhile, can leverage the dial to either adjust the volume or skip forward and backward while watching a video.
While additional apps are welcome, developers will now be able to freely build additional integrations with the Craft SDK. Logitech has made available design guidelines and sample code to help developers get started, all of which you can check out at Github.
The Logitech Craft keyboard is available now for $199.99.
