Spray Can is the ultimate graffiti- and painting-app for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch, designed by rapidrabbit. Its first version was released in 2009 and has gained more than 5 million downloads since then. Today Spray Can forms the biggest artist community in the mobile world.
In 2009 Spray Can was released by rapidrabbit, originally designed for playing pranks by simulating graffiti spray can sounds, such as shaking or spraying. Due to its realistic sound effects and graphics, the app quickly became a biggie and took over the top download lists of North America and Europe.
Spurred by success rapidrabbit’s developers implemented a paint-feature, adding additional colors and the option to share all the wonderful artworks via facebook and Twitter. A new online gallery, plus a rating/commenting function, were the final touches before Spray Can cracked the US download charts’ top 3 and hit the top 25 several times.
“Our vision was to create a YouTube for pictures”, says Peter Morczinek, project leader at rapidrabbit. “When we read our beta testers’ first comments, we knew we had achieved this goal.” But smashing technology only accounts for one part of Spray Can’s roaring success. What makes the app alive are the people using it, building the biggest painting community on iOS and soon to come Android.
