It was just a little over a year ago that FiftyThree launched Paper for the iPad. But during its short existence, the sketch app has amassed quite a few accomplishments, including winning an Apple Design award.
Last night, Paper received its first major update since its original debut. And the release, which brings the app to version 1.3.1, offers a few improvements, including the highly-requested pinch-to-zoom feature… Read More
Adobe announced a number of new products and changes to its current lineup today, during a keynote at its MAX conference. The company is ditching its Creative Suite, and turning its focus to a new cloud-based platform it’s calling CC.
In addition to the software announcements, Adobe also showed off new hardware today. And there are two products that we’re particularly interested in, an iPad-friendly smart stylus code-named “Project Mighty,” and a digital ruler… Read More
Looking around the collection of image boards known as 4chan, it’s hard to believe that the same person responsible for creating that, also created the app you see above. But it’s true, this is 4chan founder Chris Poole’s latest project: DrawQuest.
The premise of the app is pretty simple. Users are given daily ‘drawing quests,’ where they are asked to complete drawings by using only the tools provided. And once they’re done, they can share their drawings, view others’ artwork and more… Read More
CES didn’t officially start until today, but we’ve already seen a plethora of new mobile products and accessories. We’ve told you about smart watches and smart forks, and even smart automobiles. And now we have something for the kids.
Crayola, easily one of the most recognizable names in art supplies, has teamed up with iOS appendage-maker Griffin to create the Light Marker, a marker-shaped stylus that can draw on an iPad without having to touch the screen… Read More
This is kind of cool: the first ever Los Angeles Mobile Arts Festival is going on right now, in Santa Monica, California. Hosted by iPhoneArt.com and the Santa Monica Art Studios, the festival spotlights art created explicitly with iOS devices.
The event is like one big digital art gallery, featuring iPhoneography, artwork and more. That art on the car in the above image? Made on an iPad… Read More
TechCrunch points to an interesting new Kickstarter project called Etcher, an iPad case that makes your tablet look like an Etch-A-Sketch. But this accessory does more than just drum up nostalgia — it actually works.
That’s right, unlike other Etch-A-Sketch cases, this one has real knobs that let you draw real lines on your iPad’s screen. So on top of keeping your tablet protected, you have a way to create impromptu sketches… Read More
Paper, a new iPad sketch app, launched last night with quite a bang. That’s not surprising when you consider it has a gorgeous UI, and the fact that many of its creators are ex-Microsoft employees, who once worked on the infamous Courier project.
I know what you’re thinking. “Great, exactly what the iPad needs, another sketch app.” But before you go writing this one off, you might want to see what all of the fuss is about… Read More
But we’ve also seen our fair share of cool cases as well, and this next one certainly falls in that category. Cult of Mac points to an interesting line of see-through snap-on iPhone cases called the iTattoo… Read More
As the iPhone 5 launch inches closer, it seems everyone wants to know what the device is going to look like. We’ve heard leaked information from “sources,” and we’ve even seen purported cases for the gadget, but we still don’t really have much to go on.
This is one of the reasons that concepts are so interesting. Artists take the rumors and the speculation, and create visual representations. This is exactly what the folks over at Ciccarese Design have done with their latest creation, the iPhone Air… Read More
It only took 8 hours for this guy to hand engrave the bottom of his iPhone bezel.
You can only imagine how long it would take to do it all.
Engraving my iPhone is something I’ve wanted to do for quite some time now, the plain metal border was so tempting. I’ve searched the net, but haven’t yet found any hand engraved iPhones. There are a lot of laser engraved ones and cases, but to me laser engraving is not really a true engraving. So someone must start with the handmade.
For starters I engraved the bottom part of it, so when I did screw up, it wouldn’t be too noticeable. The metal seems to be some kind of stainless steel and a very tough one too. I broke many-many graver tips during the process and at least 1/4th of the time was spent on re-sharpening the gravers.
