SINGAPORE. — Mar. 9, 2018 — Today Logitech (SIX: LOGN) (NASDAQ: LOGI) announced important new updates for CRAFT, the flagship keyboard with a Creative Input Dial, including support for Adobe Lightroom Classic CC, the popular Adobe photo editing application as well as Adobe Reader DC on Windows® and Preview® and Quicktime® on Mac®. A new CRAFT Software Developer Kit is also now available, allowing application developers the opportunity to augment CRAFT’s user experience by integrating app specific controls with the  keyboard’s creative input dial, or Crown, giving immediate access to context-specific computing tools, into apps.

“We’ve received extremely positive feedback about the CRAFT keyboard since launch, but wanted to support more apps, with more customization options, for an even deeper and more engaging creative experience,” said Moninder Jain, head of Video Collaboration for Logitech Asia Pacific and managing director for ASEAN. “We have now added support for Adobe Lightroom Classic CC and also released an SDK so developers can help us make the Crown even more useful for all users.”  
Using Adobe Lightroom Classic CC with CRAFT, you can edit your photos faster without taking your eyes off your image. With a slight touch of the Crown, you can easily access 11 different editing tools, such as saturation, tint contrast or shadows, without fidgeting with sliders. A quick tap changes functions, and a smooth turn changes the selected function's value. The Crown is intuitive and fluid to use, giving efficiency and uninterrupted creative flow to the way you work. 
Additional updates allow you to use the keyboard’s Crown in the following ways: 
     Adobe Reader DC on Windows: Zoom, change the page and scroll horizontally.
     VLC Media Player on Windows: Skip forward and backward while watching a video, or adjust the volume.
     Preview on Mac: Zoom, change the page and scroll horizontally. 
     Quicktime on Mac: Skip forward and backward while watching a video, or adjust the volume.
     Safari® for Mac: Navigate between tabs.
     SpotifyTM for Mac and Windows: Play and pause your music, change the volume, or change songs.

With the CRAFT Software Developer Kit, application developers can help to evolve CRAFT, improving the user experience within their apps. Application developers can access high-level architecture, design guidelines and sample codes to create app-specific plugins for the Crown at the link here.
