Exactly as it advertises. Pixel Studio is a mobile app for making pixel art. varying sizes allow for you to set the level of detail. HSV color pallete with a large number of save spaces for colors. an intuitive user interface with very little menu navigation. (at least for a mobile app). This program is great. it even has an animation feature that I have yet to use. Had to leave a review because I actually love this. optimal with a thin stylus.

lovely pixel art editor, nice layout, and awesome animation functions. the only problem is a tutorial, or lack thereof, other than that, this is the best one on the market!!!>Edit, have been using this for awhile now, the animation system is just bad and it feels like oleg just kinda ignores the pleas to fix it, will put review back to 5 as soon as animation system is fixed! >> Edit no.2, it's much better now, really enjoy the advanced mode

I JUST figured out that you can tap the layer again to toggle the visibility. Not being able to do that has been driving me crazy. That's what I get for not letting the app teach me how to use it. At first the icons looked like a jumbled mess to me. I mean, did they have to be individually wrapped in chunky white squares? But over time I've warmed up to the spirit of a pixelated theme. Now I'm fully in love with it.
