An iOS Forensics tool for Verification, Research or Analysis from DoubleBlak.

A true passion project, ArtEx started life when I was an examiner and wanted to do my own research or present data in a different way.

Over the years, I've continued to add new features and functionalites, as well as adding support for a few apps.

It is totally seperate to my daytime job, but something I still maintain and enjoy working on.

Keeping reading to find out more, or watch some videos to see how ArtEx could benefit you.
