You may remember Kotaro Fujita as the maker of Retro Sparkle (that Candy Crush of sorts), or the organizer of iOS conference CocoaLove. But this time the South Philly iOS whiz is back at it with three super-duper sticker packs.
“Art is my first love,” Fujita told Technical.ly in an email. “This allows me to focus on creating art again. Its also very cool working with artists to make cool stickers packs and seeing people appreciate their work as much as I have.”
Fujita also said the whole sticker pack situation makes for an easy entry point for aspiring developers. Likely he’s not the only Philly dev putting one of these together, so check back for more local sticker fun.
In the meantime, have some fun with these:
Geeky name aside, this pack lets you snap masks on you and your friends (a la Snapchat filters).
As per the App Store description: “Love hamsters? Love them doing funny and cute things? Love them in funny costumes? This could be the sticker pack for you!”
This pack was developed in partnership with Philly-based artist Bryan Pham (Phamsters, get it?). Perch them on your shoulders or pepper them across the screen.
Look for more sticker packs from local artists and from Fujita himself.
“My ultimate goal is to progressively make more complex and engaging iMessage apps/games in the near future,” Fujita said. “I have a few cool ideas in the pipeline and its been a lot of fun working on them,” said.
