Creative Cloud Express: Designfor iOS



Free app for social media graphics

Adobe Spark Post for iOS is a free easy-to-use mobile app for creating eye-catching graphics and video for your social media posts. 

There are thousands of templates in the free version, and even more in the premium one. It’s also available as part of Adobe’s Creative Cloud package.

What is Adobe Spark Post used for?

Spark Post is for creating graphics for social media and the web. 

Whether you want to show your creativity in your personal posts, or if you’re running a social media advertising campaign for a small business, Spark Post is easy to learn, making it quick to get your graphics or short videos noticed.

Is Adobe Spark free?

Yes, the Adobe Spark Post graphic design app is completely free, and it includes thousands of templates to get you started quickly. However, in the free version, the app adds a logo on the bottom corner of your graphic. You’ll need to upgrade to Premium to remove it.

Is Adobe spark easy to use? 

Yes, it is. Just create a free account or sign in with one of your existing online accounts, such as Google, and you can get started. It even has pre-sized templates for various social media platforms to prevent formatting problems when uploading your content.

How do I get rid of Adobe Spark watermark? 

In the free version, the app will automatically place a watermark in the bottom corner of your graphic. You can remove it by clicking on it, but you’ll have to do this every time you create something. To permanently remove it, you’ll need to upgrade to Spark Post Premium.

Is Adobe spark better than Canva?

In terms of simplicity, it is, but generally, Canva is better. It has more templates in its 30-day free trial, and you can drag and drop file uploads, and more options for positioning elements in your graphic. For example, you can place one element in front or behind with a simple right-click.

Our take

Even in the free version Spark Post is packed with templates and enough tools for you to get noticed on any of the main social media platforms.

Should you download it?

Yes. As a free social graphics tool, it’s excellent. However, it's not suitable for creating web pages, as it's limited to a single page. If you just want to share images on social media, you can use Instagram.
