"I just downloaded Tux Paint, I am extremely impressed with the program. I am very anxious for my grandchildren to try it, I am sure it will be a hit with them."- Mary Jean Jones

"You've done it! You've created a functional, powerful, FUN piece of software my four-year-old can use! I probably looked like a big goofy chimp here for about 20 minutes as I took Tux Paint for a spin at my local coffee shop. I swear I was grinning. What a triumph!"- Peter Thompson

"I just had to tell you that [our daughter] is absolutely in love with Tux Paint. I know I told you that, but it's freaking me out that she is only 3 and can operate it all on her own. She knows how to change the background, change stamps, go from one brush type to another and change colos - she learned how to use it so quickly! So, I thank you. And [my daughter] thanks you! :)" - Patti M., Sacramento, California, USA

"My daughter, soon 7, loves it. It is surprizingly powerful for its paradigm."- David Baron

I love this app!!

This app is superior!!! I've made a lot of wallpapers for my device and I love it!! Making custom wallpapers shows my true personality and art skills. I love the patterns and all the special effects that the app provides for me. When I get older I want to make real wallpapers for real people, and this app would help me fulfill that dream. Thank you Tux Paint!! Thank you so much and the best part is that it's free!! You can free draw anything you want! There's no better app for drawing and showing off your art skills than this app!! And you can even print and share your work!! Anyways, PLEASE get this app if you want a free app that you can draw and write and print out stuff and much, much more!! Enjoy!!

Still love it , but

I love tux paint I’ve been playing it on the computer for years and I’m happy to be able to have it on my tablet now but there’s a problem with it , every time i click the stamps in basicly crashes, within ether a few seconds or immediately it close it’s self out and goes back to home screen, I made a really cool picture and I didn’t even get to save it cause it went off. Please fix this when possible

Tux kept my life on track

The sudden burst of serotonin i get when opening this app is the only thing keeping me sane.
The pure nostalgia brings me back to a time when the world wasn’t so dark.
When the world is closing around me, and all my troubles are catching up to me again, i just look into that joyful penguin’s eyes and i know everything’s okay...
Things have been so difficult since the divorce. She took the kids, she took everything. But she could never take tux. I have tux to keep me on track.
When I want to turn to drugs or alcohol to battle my pain, i just turn to the nostalgic rush tix gives.
All in all, tux turned my life around. As a child he brought me joy, and he still brings me joy to this day.
Thank you.
