*** Create Art. Even if you can't draw. ***
Pattern Artist is a unique and fun app for quickly creating beautiful custom repeating patterns and abstract art. Even if you don't consider yourself an artist, with Pattern Artist, you can be! Use it to make wallpapers, website backgrounds (including Facebook, Twitter and Flickr home pages), calendars, custom photo frames, pattern resources for other art programs, or just because you love making art!
Pattern Artist is not a painting app but a novel template-based approach to creating captivating designs. The basics are simple - you will likely create your first design in just a few minutes - yet it has the capability and flexibility to be a serious art creation tool.
If you want a unique background for your mobile device or your website, Pattern Artist provides a refreshing alternative to all the "wallpaper gallery" apps you've used. Rather than browsing through pages of pre-built backgrounds to find a wallpaper that appeals to you, why not create a customized background pattern with the design, colors, textures and scaling that appeals to your artistic tastes and/or design requirements?
Download Pattern Artist Free to discover just how fun creating artistic patterns can be. The free version of the app allows you to try out all the features of Pattern Artist, limiting only the number of templates and color schemes provided, the number of custom color schemes you can create, and the output resolution of some of the tools.

Ratings and Reviews
Love this app
It can be used for creating patterns for weaving of various materials and for cross stitching. Can see color combinations on a pattern. It’s only limited by ones own imagination. Great app
Not very easy to use
I don't like this app because of its lack of information on how to use it. But I think it still has potential to be a great app if it is used correctly and more creative features are added
