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.

When I came to see some reviews, I saw the app was listed as "In-App Purchases" so I came to check to find, there is an Add Remover. I didn't even know there were adds! Also, this took me a while to realise, if you saved pixel art and, for instance, delete the app or the canvas, by using the right sized canvas, you can perfectly re-import the image. This app is great. It's wht it's supposed to be and nothing more. No extra trash, not too many adds, not too complicated. I hella recommend it.

I've been using this app for 4-5 years now and it is amazing for creating pixel art when away from a computer. This app is actually what got me into making pixel art as It is very beginner friendly, intuitive, and doesn't have lots of ads (only like a banner ad at the bottom of the screen and a video ad every now and again when you leave a drawing). The only change I'd suggest would be the addition of a line tool. (Also please remove the "Great for NFTs" in the description)

I love this app so much! And there are a few things I'd like to be added to this app for a better experience. Everything currently on it is fine, but one thing I would fix is the canvase sizes. If we could customize our own size, that would be awesome (instead of having a limit). A few things I'd like to be added is a map feature, so when your zoomed in, you know exactly where you are on the canvas. The last little thing I'd like to be added is a feature where you can categorize color swatches, instead of having all of them in a row. This app overall is amazing and I use it all the time, so having these few little things added/touched up, would make this app that much better. (One little edit, adding a mirror effect and layers would be helpful too)
