About this app

Pocket Paint is a drawing app that allows you to edit graphics, images, and photos, make parts transparent, zoom in up to single pixel level, and much more! Together with Catrobat’s app Pocket Code it also allows you to easily create animations, apps, and games directly on your smartphone!

Images are saved under Photos and Gallery.

-- Save images as .jpg (compressed), .png (lossless, with transparency), or .ora (keeping layer information)
-- Layers (including moving up and down or merging them)
-- Stickers from the Catrobat family images and more (only for this it accesses the internet)
-- Tools: brush, pipette, stamp, circle/ellipse, cropping, flipping, zooming, line tool, cursor, fill tool, rectangle, eraser, moving, rotation and much more!
-- Easy import of images and graphics
-- Full screen drawing
-- Color palette or RGBa values

Absolutely fun and easy to use, even on a phone! My one qualm is that there is no "invert colours" tool, but I can just as easily use a filter on the finished drawing. All in all, a great drawing app! Edit: I have since found a bug where, if I use the watercolour brush and close the app, the watercolour turns into a normal brush texture, and messes up my landscapes. Any chance this can be cleared up?

In spite of the fact that pinch and zoom doesn't appear to work very well in landscape orientation, this app blows the proverbial living daylights out of the Windows 10 version of MS Paint! It just solved a major issue I had with a picture on my computer. And the ability to adjust the color palette (RGB mix) once you select a color is fantastic! And it just solved another problem! But I have to say that I find use of a mouse to be indispensible.

The HEX code shown in the color tool is in Welsh. Any way to convert to English? Very difficult saving images after editing. Sometimes it works after several tries, but it's problematic. The smudge tool hasn't been working. Moving a line vertically after applying one with the line tool requires using your phone's back button and redrawing the line. Very frustrating!
