Kevin (KAL) Kallaugher, the editorial cartoonist for The Economist magazine, has launched his first iPhone app.
Designed for the iPhone, this new application is an impressive collection of KAL’s award winning political cartoons, hand-picked by the artist himself. Browse through 150+ examples of KAL’s work, including 29 color covers and illustrations from The Economist magazine. Store them on your iPhone, upload to Facebook or share with friends.
Kal uses his poison pen to comment on Presidential elections, the War on Terror, American politics and international affairs.
Speaking about the iKal Book app, Kevin KAL Kallaugher said:
“iKal Book is more than an assembly of individual cartoons… together, the over 150 images read like a history lesson of recent world events.”
“Among the award winning art found in the iKal-book are all the cartoons from my print collection “KAL Draws Criticism”($20.00) but at a fraction of the cost ($.99)”
Roman Grigorjev, Founder and Managing Partner of Revel Mob, comments:
“Cartoons are graphically engaging, instantaneous and fun to share with friends … making them perfect for mobile devices like smartphones and iPhone in particular”
Revel Mob and KAL are also looking into developing more interactive and engaging applications for KAL in the near future and are welcoming any ideas and contributions as to what you would like to see in the next KAL iPhone application.

The iKal Book app is available for $0.99 from the App Store on iPhone and iPod Touch.
