Coming soon: Canvas for iOS

Posted 11 months ago by Murat Mutlu

One of the things we’re really passionate about here at Marvel is creating tools that introduce design to a wider audience.  Whether you’re a designer, student, entrepreneur or just have a concept you want to flesh out – we want everyone to be able to start their ideas in Marvel.

So we’re excited to give you a preview of the latest addition to the Marvel eco-system – Canvas for iOS: A rapid design tool that allows anyone to create mockups using the iPhone and iPad.

Canvas will be built in to our existing iOS app meaning you’ll be able to go from designing your mockups to interactive prototypes in just a few minutes.

Canvas for iOS – Rapid design and prototyping on the iPhone and iPad

A rapid design tool built for touch

Quickly design mock ups using shape, type and image tools. You can also mix high and low fidelity by importing photos of sketches and overlaying elements.

Access over 1 million free stock photos and icons

We’ve integrated with the Iconfinder, Unsplash and Random Users to bring you the best icon and stock photo libraries directly in the app. You’ll never be more than a tap away from adding high quality assets to your designs

Pen tool with 3D touch support

We’ve added a pen tool for quick doodles and sketched wireframes. Each sketch becomes a movable layer so you can quickly piece together your ideas. The pen also supports pressure if you have a 3D touch device.

Prototype your designs

Once you’ve added your designs, you can link them together to create an interactive prototype in just a few taps. Everything is synced with your web account too so you’ll be able to access your projects from anywhere.
