ArtPad iOS App Adds Social Functions

Dropstone Digital has updated its ArtPad iPhone app to include Twitter and Tumblr sharing features. The app, which already allowed for Facebook sharing, is now at version 1.2.1. Dropstone has also added new tint controls and extended shading capabilities to the painting and image-editing app. 

The company is inviting users to be part of a creative community via the app – users can post artistic creations that have been made on ArtPad to the apps Facebook page. The best submission each month wins £50 of iTunes credit. 

Marc Wongsam, the apps creator, says: “With the phenomenal uptake of iPhone and social networks including Facebook, the demand for personalised artwork is rocketing. We developed ArtPad to be an immensely fun, creative app for users to create outstanding graphics to share with friends and peers.”

The app is available now from the App Store. It is currently on a time-limited, half-price promotion, and can be downloaded for 59p.
