Excellent App, Only a Few Critiques

I’ve been wanting to get into pixel art for a long time, so I went looking for a decent app. After trying out many, this one definitely took the cake with its many features. The zoom/move option usually is fluid and easily accessible. Although it’d be nice to have a crop option, there being various sizes to choose from is pretty cool. Also, being able to duplicate your projects is awesome. I’d kinda want to be able to name my canvases, but that’s a minor complaint. I’m not really used to writing reviews, but this app outshined all the others so much that I felt inclined to.

Great but there is a feature I’d really like to see

I think the app is great it has all the stuff an app like this should have. It functions properly and it doesn’t lag which is why I’m giving it 5 stars. BUT I would really like to be able to make sprites. There is no app on the entire App Store that is good for making sprites and I think that if it was implemented into this it would be great. Also idk people are comparing this to sandbox lol these are totally different things.

Great app, but could use some improvements

I haven’t been good with normal art so I got into pixel art, so I’ve been looking through the App Store and I eventually found this one. It’s very easy to use and I got my pixel art finished quickly. But I had to rate it 4 stars because there are a few that could be improved. I would recommend adding layers, custom canvas size, and a hue picker where the color changes to the hue your type. I wouldn’t mind having a small purchase for it as long as it’s added. Besides that it’s still a good app.
