With the growth of the eBook market, Kwik 2 fills an essential need, making mobile development easily accessible to talented designers and illustrators.

Kwiksher is pleased to announce the launch of Kwik 2, an updated release of the original Kwik plugin for Adobe Photoshop CS5 and higher. Kwik 2 simplifies the process of creating interactive, animated content for iOS and Android devices. The updated release features an array of additional features and offerings including: a new interface, enhanced speed, and an auto-debug system. Kwik 2 also allows users to easily add buttons, actions and animations to static Photoshop compositions.

Kwik 2 is ideal for designers and illustrators looking to create interactive eBooks, magazines, and now, games with physics. The plugin provides dozens of pre-made features such as controlling sound, linear and path animation, and sprite sheet capabilities without the need for users to leave Photoshop. The tool also allows users to integrate external code inside the plugin.

"Kwik empowers illustrators and designers to bring stories to life without any coding,” said Alex Souza, founder of Kwiksher. "With Kwik 2, creative folks can build wonderful content at a much faster rate, direct from their Photoshop compositions.”

Kwik uses Corona SDK, the leading cross-platform mobile development framework, for previewing and publishing final projects. Over 150,000 developers worldwide build with Corona SDK, and more than 20,000 Corona-made apps have been published to major app markets.

“We’re honored to continue our lasting partnership with Kwiksher,” said Walter Luh, CEO of Corona Labs. “With the growth of the eBook market, Kwik 2 fills an essential need, making mobile development easily accessible to talented designers and illustrators.”

Dozens of popular Kwik-made storybooks and apps have been published to major app markets including Fire Cupid, featured in Wall Street Journal, TIME, and The Washington Times, and Sparky the Shark, an award-winning children's tale. New apps made with the beta version of Kwik 2, are already available on the market, such as Floating Fun, Nighty Night Monsters and Corali.

“Discovering Kwik was a dream come true. Within minutes, I was convinced that it was the right tool for my project,” said Luc Adriaens, author of Corali, a gorgeous storybook made with Kwik 2.
