PicsArt Photo Studio, the popular photo-editing and -sharing app, has just been redesigned for iOS 7, with lots of UI changes and new modes of navigation.
Now at version 3.0, PicsArt boasts a new interface that uses iOS 7′s trademark flatness and translucency to great effect.
After installing the update, you’ll instantly see the big difference that PicsArt’s iOS 7 redesign has made. If you’re already logged in, you’ll be greeted by the new start page that immediately shows you your PicsArt network. Otherwise. you’ll be offered options for editing your own photos or checking out what others in the PicsArt community have been creating with the app.
The PicsArt team explains:
The concept behind our new design is to ensure that all of your favorite activities are always visible and accessible, so that you can seamlessly jump between them at any time. To navigate between sections you no longer need to swipe through multiple pages to get to the one you want. Instead, you can find everything you need in the buttons at the bottom of your screen: tap on the Contests, Network, Profile or Explore sections with your index finger and easily navigate between sections. Then, no matter where you are, you can always easily shift between sharing and editing sections of the app. Likewise, we have applied the same principle to our Contests section, which can now be easily navigated by contest type.
PicsArt Photo Studio 3.0 also makes all new clipart packages more accessible as they can now be downloaded with a single tap from the menu bar underneath the workspace.
Also including the obligatory bug fixes, PicsArt Photo Studio 3.0 is available now in the App Store for free. It’s compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad running iOS 6.0 or later.
