Coral Springs, FL (PRWEB) June 25, 2013
Kwiksher, makers of the Kwik plugin for creating mobile storybook apps, announced today that they have named investor David Porras as their new COO and added mobile gaming veteran Carlos Icaza to their board of advisors.
David will head all operations at Kwiksher to help manage and continue the company’s current pace of rapid growth. His past experience funding successful mobile startups and positions at top-tier organizations like the Burger King Corporation and Wells Fargo Bank in North America were especially enticing to Kwiksher founder Alex Souza when looking for ways to push the company forward.
“Since we first launched in May 2011, we’ve seen hundreds of apps created with Kwik,” said Souza. “And now, it’s an indescribable honor to have David and Carlos on-board to help us grow even faster! Both of their experience in the mobile space will allow Kwiksher to speed up the development of new products and services, and ultimately provide our users with the better overall experiences.”
Kwik users already may know Carlos Icaza from his previous tenure as co-founder/CEO of Corona Labs (née Ansca Mobile) when the partnership between Kwiksher and Corona Labs was initially formed. Carlos now will serve as an advisor to Kwiksher, drawing upon his current experience as CEO of the Lanica mobile game development platform and past experience in heading up Adobe’s mobile Flash unit. Under Carlos’ leadership, Corona Labs saw their user base increase by more than 150,000 users.
Together, David and Carlos will help commandeer Kwiksher to help users fully realize their creative visions.
“The main goal with Kwiksher now is to make rich, interactive content and apps a reality for every single person that wants to share their vision with the world,” explained Porras. “We know that a lot of people want to harvest their creativity, and we want to provide them with all the tools necessary to do so successfully.”
Kwik currently is available for users of Adobe Photoshop CS5 (or higher) and Corona SDK.

The company was founded by Alex Souza in 2011, and released its first product Kwik to give Photoshop users a way to build gorgeous mobile apps in CS5, without having to be experts at programming. Kwik users can fully publish their creations using Corona SDK, and distribute their final products to the most popular mobile app stores for iOS and Android.
