Unleash infographic creativity with Grafio - Mark Anderson's Blog

Unleash infographic creativity with Grafio - Mark Anderson's Blog | mrpbps iDevices | Scoop.it

"It’s not often that I write a specific post on a specific app but I am today. I’ve been using the app ‘Grafio’ for some time now. I found it because I was looking for an app that I could use to create my own infographics ..... and this was the best recommendation I received."

John Pearce's insight:

I've just downloaded the Lite version of this app and it is very intuitive and easy to get started with albeit on the iPhone a little tricky to work with when using fat fingers. Though by no means impossible on the phone, when opened on the iPad it is just a really nice app to use. The capability to add images from your Camera roll as well as add audio to shapes makes it a great addition.
