Canva has always been a favorite tool of content creators. The website launched in 2013 and put easy and accessible designing into the hands of amateurs and professionals alike. Unlike Photoshop and other more complex design programs, Canva has always been built around the need for a user-friendly tool where someone could successfully create graphics just as easily without design experience.
Three years and millions of graphics later, the site finally launched it’s iPhone and iPad app, taking easy design to your smartphone.
The launch of the Canva app had skeptics concerned that creating graphics with your fingers on a phone would take away the simplicity of the site’s original concept. Well, you can rest assured that the new application is just as easy to create and design graphics as the desktop version.
With the tap of a finger, you can now create beautiful social media and blog graphics and save them straight to your phone. The Canva app features almost all of the same functions as the original site, with more to come. You start by selecting the type of graphic you would like to make with the option to choose a predesigned format to work from.
From there you can add filters, change fonts, words, or pictures.
There is one big difference between the desktop and mobile versions of Canva that really sets the app apart. You can now design your graphic, and then take a picture from your phone directly into the already designed graphic. This makes it so you don’t have to work around the design to get the picture in the right position, you can now decide on the photo’s position after the graphic is already designed.
The creators of Canva hope that they will be able to grow their number of frequent users with the addition of the iPhone app and expand the world of design to the everyday iPhone user.
