I tried using this app, and at first it worked, but today it started being extremely unresponsive. It will just ignore inputs for a while, allow 1 or 2, then become unresponsive again. Is it a problem with Chromebook? I read anoter review saying its buggy on those. Also, if the thumbnail could be used to pan when zoomed in that would be amazing. Update: Thanks for the fast reply! Looking forward to an update! Also is it possible to have Volume Up/Down = Undo/Redo? Big quality of life up IMO!

Hi Mike, thanks for your feedback. I'm sorry that the app isn't working well on your Chromebook. I develop and test on phones and tablets, so I don't often get a chance to check the app on Chromebooks. You could send a video recording of the issue to pixelbrush.app@gmail.com and I can look into it. As for thumbnail panning, I will add it. Thanks

One of the best pixel art programs I've used. It's easy, versatile, and fast. However, it has one bug that makes it unusable. I can only add and remove pallettes, but not switch to the other color pallettes I've made. Without uniform color pallettes available, I can't make anything look good, especially for making game assets.

Thank you for your feedback Mazzyzerg. I have now released an update that improves the colour palettes system. You can add/delete/edit/move colours around a palette, as well as save and resuse colour palettes across drawings. Different drawings can have different colour palettes. I hope this helps you make game assets :) Jaween.

The app seems to leave the first pixel blank when coloring in one long stroke. Can't adjust colors for the pallet using another color as a base. Very difficult for finding shades and highlights. Needs layers for sure. EDIT: After playing around with this for a while. I have a suggestion of adding hot keys. A secondary button that can be customized that tool it uses. The problem this app has is when you are drawing and mess up. You constantly have to swap out the pencil tool for the eraser tool just for one or two pixels.
