This developer means business

I’m new to pixel art, so I bought this 2 months ago. Since then they released two big feature updates - may. Using this app with Apple Pencil to me is easier and more fun than Aseprite. I am sure there is a power feature missing here or there. But if you’re looking for something for your iPad to do pixel art, this is the one.

Best pixel art app for iOS, only a few complaints

I have tried multiple other apps for pixel art in iOS, and this is by far my favorite one. It is basically Aseprite for iOS. I love that you can easily customize the color of the UI—that is one feature that I haven’t seen in Aseprite that I wish they would implement.

The only complaints I have are these:
- Sometimes when you use the selection tool and drag items across the canvas, it will seem like the item duplicates along the way. This is only a visual bug and if you use the selection tool along the duplicates, they will disappear.
- The UI is not very intuitive, and it does take some getting used to knowing where some of this app’s features are
- You can’t easily import palettes from files. The only formats they allow is an RPL or GPL file, which are not easily found or converted to. You can use a PNG of a palette you like, use it as a reference image, and generate the palette like that, but that method is quite inaccurate.

Even with these complaints, though, this is a great app, and I use it every day for making my pixel art. You can now import Aseprite files for free, so it’s very useful if you use both regularly.

Best pixel art app on the appstore

This app is great especially if you use aseprite and the premium is worth it as well if you plan on exporting anything the only problem I had was not being able to import aseprite files it’s quite annoying having to export from aseprite every time I want to edit on my ipad

Developer Response ,

Thanks for review, the .ase file IO support is coming in R17.
