BananaPaint lets you relive the 1980s- when life was simpler, and using a computer with mouse and windows was definitely thinking different.
BananaPaint is an homage, and labor of love; it painstakingly recreates one of the most groundbreaking applications of the last century, fixes some bugs, and bridges the past to the present with many cool modern features savvy users expect of a cutting edge iOS App.
Coming soon: BananaWrite & BananaDraw!
• Updated Swedish & French translations, care of Johan Malmström, Sylvain Pellet respectively.
Ratings and Reviews
Cool idea, please fix the input code
I really love the app, but it has a flaw that prevents me from using it for serious work—when I place a finger or pen on the screen to begin drawing, the selected tool doesn’t take effect right away; I have to move my finger or pen slightly first. This means everything I draw ends up slightly offset from where I first placed it. It’s hard to draw anything precisely like this. Would definitely be 5 stars if this issue is fixed!
Takes me back
Wow - this is amazingly well done. I feel like digging my Mac Plus out and converting it into an Banana Jr. I heard the dev is thinking of doing MacWrite and other old apps - I hope so! I’d really love to see Write Now revived but that’s probably pushing things.
Time to go off and do some bitmap editing - awesome!
Like it’s 1984 all over again
Banana Paint is like a trip back in time to the heady days of MacPaint on the original Macintosh. Make the menu selections blink when released and the journey will be complete. Great job!
