iPhone Screenshots


Create your own 8-bit-style animations, pictures, and effects on a square pixel display with bits of code the size of a text message. Manipulate pixels, import photos, plot functions, make silly memes, and explore generative art.

Inspired by classic home computers and modern text-messaging apps, PixelNote gives you a 101x101, 256-color canvas which you control from a one-line command input field. PixelNote defines its own, compact, unique programming language, designed for compactness, experimentation, and challenge.

PixelNote comes with a set of examples to get you started, along with a full built-in reference guide to the language. Start with an example and modify it, or build your own; play around, try different things, see how they look. As you work, PixelNote keeps a history, so you can revisit your old code. Have fun!

What’s New

Version 3.0.1

Version 3.0 included these updates:
- The new "touch" command lets you take touch input in your programs. (There's a little paint-style program included in the examples now!)
- A few other new commands, or new options on existing commands, such as simpler looping and if-style conditionals.
- Expanded and easier-to-navigate examples and documentation.
- Updates for the four years of iOS updates since the last version, including dark mode support.

Alas, it also had a bug; when you chose "Save Picture to Photos", it could crash because of a missed step in how it now requests permissions. Version 3.0.1 fixes that.

Print C64 maze

Very good application for quick coding exercises. Here is a program similar to the famous C64 one line PRINT maze:

cls 75: y=-46:anim: x=0..25:a=?0..1?:case a=0(line x*4+3-50,y,x*4-50,y-3,0 ),( line x*4-50,y,x*4-50+3,y-3,0 ): case x>24( copy box -50,46,101,-100:paste -50,50 :box -50,-46,101,-4,75) :pause 3:# print C64 maze
