What’s New

Version 2.10.4

- Color Picker now offers a “wide color gamut” (Display P3) on devices with wide-color displays. Note: When you open one of your older drawings, KaleidoPaint maps the drawing’s “traditional color gamut” (sRGB) to an appropriate subset of the Display P3 gamut, so your older drawings will still look exactly the same, even when stored in the new wide-color format.
- Fixed a bug that had allowed a drag in the Color Picker to get “stolen” and re-interpreted as a scroll of the enclosing window.
- More efficient GPU usage on iPhone 8 and later (thanks to “non-uniform threadgroup sizes”), for faster rendering.
- Added Portuguese translation, thanks to Nuno Fernandes.

This is one of those must have apps

Completely ad free, IAP free. This has the feel of one of those awesome open source drawing projects, like Alchemy, that are so rare on iOS. I'm actually addicted to using this app lately; the possibilities are endless, and I can tell that with practice I will be able to make some truly amazing work.

I also love how the UI is feels completely native: no fancy switches in colors that clash with the system colors, just regular blue and green elements like you'd see in any system app.

I've still got so many suggestions for the dev, I'll be sending an email shortly.

Best in class

I’ve been using programs like this since the iPad came on the market. My favorite program was Tiledeck, and I made over a thousand projects with it, but the developer ghosted years ago. This program has finally given me my creative hobby back! I have developed significant neuropathy and this program has a line-smoothing function that lets me draw the lines I want to draw, not get stuck with the wobbly lines my neuropathy draws! The developer is also still involved and responds to support issues, so that’s an added bonus!

This is far and away the most fun and fascinating app I’ve ever had. There are plenty of apps out there to spend leisure time on or to simply dive into some mind-numbing activity when you want to, but this one engages your artistic and creative side without you having to have artistic training or skills.
Can’t draw a straight line? So much the better!
I love the versatility! If I like the first design that emerges, I will duplicate it (sometimes several times) before continuing so after I finish the current one, I can go back and go in a different direction with the next one.
One of the best features is that you can change the drawing completely simply by changing the symmetry.
And I love that you can expand it up to add tiny details like dots.
You will need go wrong with this app!
