Dear Canvas Designer Friends
Version 1.1 is now available for download on the app store. Firstly, it addresses some bugs users experienced; in particular, the amount of ressources to load at startup has dramatically reduced and crashes at startup should not happen anymore; also the app is now fully iOS6 compatible and support for the new iPhone 5 has been added; please let me know if you still experience any issues.
Now to the exciting bits: This updated packs a lot of new stuff in it. It has 2 new exciting elements you can play with now called FLOWERS and RAYS. Further, you now have a thumbnail view of each layer in your settings menu so its easier to figure out what each layer displays, plus you have an ultra-fast PREVIEW mode for layers as well which is especially helpful with the more complex and time-consuming layers.
Even I managed to make the blur about 3 times faster using new features of iOS6, you should still be aware that this app uses high-precision drawing methods and to generate a design in high-quality and high resolution takes some time to render.
