The 20 Coolest Apps Of 2013

Quark DesignPad

What's cool about Quark DesignPad is its ability to create beautiful, accurate designs and layouts using an iPad for free. What's really cool is that those designs can be further developed and output using QuarkXpress, the once-leading desktop publishing application with about 95 percent marketshare. DesignPad is suited to creating ads, brochures, business cards, newsletters, posters and anything else destined for print or digital display. A recent update adds control of shadow color and precision image placement. Work can be shared via email or social networks. A $10 Pro Feature Pack adds the ability to save PNGs and print-quality PDFs, save directly to Dropbox and print using Apple's AirPrint.
