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.

Does what it says on the label

4 stars because there are features I wish were present.
First and foremost is the option for a transparent background. I wish I didn’t have to go in with a photo editor to take out the white blank spaces
Second is the ability to import a “guide layer” like if you’re trying to make pixel art of a picture or something and you want to be able to have a reference layer under the actual drawing.
Other than that, it does what it says. Not buggy or anything
