Canva is an application to make graphic art on the cell phone with various design options, ranging from formats suitable for each social network to graphic parts for the creation of commercial brands. The platform is intuitive and easy to access, so the user does not need to be a professional to work with the editing tools. The app is available for Android and iPhone, in addition to having an online editor on the web with exclusive features.

You can choose from more than 60,000 Canva templates to start the graphic art or start from scratch. It is also possible to add photos from the gallery or animations. After finishing the work, the file can be downloaded in PNG, JPEG and PDF for reading or printing, according to the purpose of use. Although free, I have to pay to use certain elements and models from the Canva database.
Adobe Spark seeks to be more accessible to users who do not have graphic skills, unlike other Adobe programs, such as Photoshop and Illustrator. The application for Android and iPhone allows you to create varied graphic arts from templates. Unlike Canva, Spark does not have categories of post formats, separating models in themes such as school, travel, crafts, among other subjects.

The Adobe Spark home page features a number of templates, regardless of the purpose, and also offers animation features and importing personal files into the arts. Login using an Adobe ID, Facebook or Google account. Not all Spark features are free: a subscription fee of R $ 36.99 per month or R $ 374.99 per year is charged for full access to the app. Non-subscriber files are saved with the program logo in the lower right corner.
The Posters app is also simple to use when creating graphic art on your phone: just open the home page and activate the thousands of free templates. You can create a version from scratch and add elements from a collection with resources that include fonts, colors, GIFs and stickers.
In addition, the application allows you to make a photo carousel using a set of ready-made and standardized templates. It is also possible to produce a puzzle feed for social networks which consists of joining photos from Instagram profile, forming a single image as a puzzle. The download of the Portuguese app is only available on the Google Play Store.

Desygner has a gallery with more than 1 million layouts. They meet the characteristics of about 14 social networks and printed formats for personal or professional demands. It is possible, for example, to create advertisements for social networks, such as Facebook or Google, with the layouts of the application. The files are saved in JPEG, PNG or PDF and can be sent to print by the cell phone.
The operation of Desygner differs from other applications because it allows you to buy exclusive resources individually for the initial amount of R $ 10. However, there is also the traditional subscription format, which costs around R $ 18 per month or R $ 130 per year. With payment, users can store their favorite resources and have access to premium art models.

5. Poster maker: Flyer Maker
The Flyer Maker app is easy to use: just access the space for editing images, choose the background you want to work with and start adding art resources. Among the tools offered, it is possible to add texts from different sources, special stickers for the creation of posters and photos from the cell phone gallery.
More than 120 free designs are available in the app in custom dimensions for use on social networks or other needs. The layout of these models is more traditional than in other apps, referring to more "vintage" posters from the past. Flyer Maker is aimed at commercial purposes, which is why the graphic productions offered are focused especially on promotions and advertisements. At the end, the user can save the banner made on the cell phone.
