iPad PSD Documents

If you're looking for something a little easier to customize, try out these iPad PSD documents.

Kevin Anderson iPad PSD

This PSD is completely editable. Every object was created using vector masks, meaning you can scale it up or down without any loss of quality.

Mppagano iPad PSD

This huge and incredibly detailed iPad PSD comes in at a whopping 2400 x 2400 pixels, large enough for almost any design project.

Geoff Teehan iPad GUI PSD

This one is for the application developers out there. The PSD was constructed using vectors, so it is fully editable and scalable. The workable screen design is formatted to 768 x 1024, so anything you design in the Photoshop file can easily be brought over to the SDK. This is a beauty of a document, coming in at around 24 MB. Start designing those apps!
