Amazing But needs work

I’ve been using this app for about a month now and I’m OBSESSED. Although, I wish you Could Turn your GIFs into Video. And there is a Glitch when You export PNG files, It deletes the work you Have done, Thanks for reading this, And Can you Add something that Can Maximize the size of the eraser. I usually do the highest setting, And this app Is Breathtaking. Thank you, And have a good Day <3

Hi Princesskittykatkit, glad you like it. Sorry to hear about deleting work with png export. I can’t reproduce the problem. But there is one thing in that if you export to animated png format when you look at it in your photo’s app it looks stationary. This is a limitation of the photo’s app, if you select it and send it as a text message or email to yourself you will see it is in fact animated. If you mean it deletes your actual project, I don’t know. Please feel free to contact me on to explain in more detail so I can fix it. Regards, Dan

I like this app not a lot like it but we need or I need to be able tint the color of each layer like I need this layer to be more see trough so it’ll look better or mini files you can open
in the middle of painting and take that small part of armor or whatever
and add it to it or reference pictures
but other then that this app is a must

Great for free

This works great for sketching out sprites.

For a simple animation sprite editor; fast and strait forward.

Thanks for informing about the iPhone 5 ok button on the on colour picker. I've just updated it so that it has less sliders on the screen at once with a selector to choose between RGB or HSV. I've just submitted the new version 1.6, it should be available soon - Cheers, Dan
