Creative apps and design tools for touch screens
Creative apps for drawing and graphic design have become our latest speciality here at Frosby Media. The tactile nature of mobile phone screens and tablet devices has led to a huge popularity in art apps and design tools for touch screen. We’ve designed apps for making pixel art, calligraphy ink painting apps, logo maker apps, and infographic design apps for the iPhone and iPad.
