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

one of the only apps I've found that allows multiple layers and transparency options. the list of features is honesty excellent. but the app crashes every 5 minutes and I've had to uninstall the program at least a half dozen times after a bug where it will not open. if better optimized this would be one of the best but it is currently unusable.

Still has some bugs. Performance of the app slows to a crawl at times. Update after June 5, 2023 update: working better, thank you! Update after April 26, 2023 update: frustratingly, this great app had some notable bugs introduced. I expect the dev will fix them, but if you try it until then, understand that it will be better later. Great app, many features and very few, minor qualms with it. Dev has improved it steadily over time. Great for quick work, even has layers, intuitive interface.

Congratulations! You've managed to complete break this app to where it's barely usable. I've been using pocket paint for years with no issues until recently. Loading pictures and inserting imagines takes forever to load. Constantly freezing, barely able to save anything. I have to uninstall and reinstall just to finish a simple project. Also why did you get rid of the stamp feature? Don't bother responding to this, instead use that time to fix this app!
