Quark DesignPad 3.0 Mobile Design App for iPad - Now Available

Award-winning iPad App Redesigned for iOS 11 with New Professional Publishing Features

Denver, CO - 9/26/2018 - A new version of Quark DesignPad iPad app is now available with even more advanced design features for creative professionals on-the-go.

Quark DesignPad is the app developed by Quark Software to help creative iPad users explore design, concept ideas and start projects on their tablet. Anyone can quickly create and design layouts for posters, postcards, advertisements, invitations, brochures, business cards or newsletters right on an iPad. Once created, the designs can be shared on Twitter, Facebook, by email, printed, exported as print ready PDF* or saved to Box or Dropbox*. Users can also optionally export the designs as native QuarkXPress files* for further refinement directly in QuarkXPress.

The updated Quark DesignPad 3.0 has been redesigned for iOS 11 and with the new version users have access to:

  • Layout Painter: Quickly sketch layouts by using intelligent “box style brushes” then turn them into finished designs
  • Snap to Guides: Helps keep boxes aligned to guides as you move or create them
  • Line Shapes with Dash: Add plain rules to your designs
  • Various Fixes and Updates: Updated Dropbox support and fixed known issues
  • UI and Performance Update: New polish and color schemes and better experience on iPad Pro
The basic version of Quark DesignPad is a free download from the iTunes store. Professional users can opt to unlock the Pro Feature Pack for access to professional output and sharing capabilities for $9.99. The additional features let users save and share print-quality PDFs; save PNG, Adobe PDF and native QuarkXPress file format versions to Box and DropBox for immediate access anywhere; or print with AirPrint support.
