License stuff: The sole purpose of this file is to help you pitch, design and build amazing software. The file nor its elements are to be repurposed as your own. It can’t be broken apart and used to create similar tools.
Note: The iPad PSD will be updated shortly.
The PSD is a well organized, labeled and layered PSD full of editable shape layers. Most people find it useful for mocking up apps. Others use it to concept ideas or create custom interface elements that work harmoniously with those native to iOS. Whatever your use, we hope you enjoy it.
Before you get started, you’ll want to become acquainted with some of the support documentation that Apple has put together over at developer.apple.com (login required). PDFs like the iOS HIG, UI Transition Guide and UI Catalog will help you become familiar with how and when to use these elements.

The primary thing to keep in mind here is that designing for a device like an iPhone, especially one with a retina display, using only a computer monitor leads to a good deal of guess work due to the differences in pixel density. We hate unnecessary guess work.

These products let you view your Photoshop canvas in real time on your iOS device. It’s the best addition to our toolkit since Photoshop added layers and multiple undos.
