About this app

Chosen as “Editor’s Choice” on Google Play in Japan. Over 2,000,000 downloads.

8bit Painter is easy to remember because it is narrowed down to intuitive operation methods and the minimum functions necessary for creating pixel art, so you will not get lost in operation. 8bit Painter focuses on ease of use rather than feature richness.

Great for creating NFT art.

It's great but the import/export feature seems totally broken. At least I have been unable to get it to work, and I consider myself tech savvy. It would be really convenient to be able to transfer files to and from the same app on a different phone. It's still great even without this broken feature that got my hopes up- but because of this I limit my grids to no more than 32x32.

Does everything I want it to and nothing I don't. At most I wish it had a custom canvas size option when making new images, but otherwise it's literally just a clean, no-frills binary art program with a pencil, an eraser, bucket and move tool. Images are saved in the app where they can be further edited/deleted/copied, and you save them out to your phone via the export option. Would recommend.

For me, this lacked a ridiculously necessary ability to show the image at actual size. There is no way (that I can find) to zoom out. You can zoom in to almost absurd levels where a single pixel fills the entire screen, but ability to zoom out would be great. Honestly, I can't give much more of a review because I stopped using the program after realizing that it lacked this feature. It makes it extremely difficult to get an idea for what the drawing will actually look like at actual scale.
