Smartphone Graphics – The New Tool(S) For Designing

We’ve had designers throw banters as to which software design tool is best for them. Some say the Adobe Graphics Suite while some would gladly point to Corel Graphics Suite. But, they are other tools, however, Corel and Adobe seems to be in the driving seat the designers’ favourite tool.

However, in these times, they have been a trend in the design industry – THE SMARTPHONE GRAPHICS.

The emergence of smartphone Graphics was triggered by the continuous sophistication of smartphones in the technology industry. We have phones having processors even higher than that of a desktop system or laptops.

But, there is a problem.

The big players in the design industry aren’t rolling out smartphone versions of their design softwares, we need more, we want to work with our sophisticated smartphones on-the-go!

As you know, competition would always exist in the world and of course, there is a rise in smartphone design softwares apps which are almost as equipped as the normal design softwares we already know and use.

Here below is a curated list of


Apps you can use to design graphics, create stunning logos, make graffiti art, draw exceptional toons, mascots etc with a smartphone.
