About this app

XGimp is an adaptation for Android of the app GIMP (GNU Image Manipulation), which is a freely distributed program for tasks as photo retouching, image composition and image authoring. As a result of that, the app XGimp provides many capabilities. It can be used as a simple paint program, image editor, an expert quality photo retouching program, an image renderer, or an image format converter.

XGimp is the app GIMP that runs remotely, so it has the same features:

- Suite of painting tools including Brush, Pencil, Airbrush, Clone, etc.
- Image editor.
- Sub-pixel sampling for all paint tools for high quality anti-aliasing.
- Extremely powerful gradient editor and blend tool.
- Supports custom brushes and patterns.
- Full alpha channel support.
- Layers and channels.
- Multiple Undo/Redo.
- Editable text layers.
- Transformation tools including rotate, scale, shear and flip.

It also includes a local image editor to modify graphics, images and photos. It is based on the open source app "Pocket Paint":

- This local image editor provides the tools: brush, line tool, cursor, fill tool, stamp, circle/ellipse, cropping, flipping, zooming, rectangle, image importing, eraser, moving, and rotating.
- Drawing in full screen.
- Change the line width and shape.
- Color palette & RGBa values.

The app itself is actually pretty neat-- they give you a bunch of tools to work with and create your own images. They even have a built in feature to use the full PC version. The problem is, if you use the PC app on your phone, it's actually running from a VM in the cloud, and even if you save your files, they never transfer down to your phone correctly. So I can't feasibly get any image edits onto my phone correctly. Please fix this, then you'll have a pretty cool app.

App is total garbage. Just crashes for no reason in the middle of a project. Also since the update, you can no longer upload an image. If you're looking for a photo editing/design app, use ibispaintX. It's much more useful and you don't constantly save your work in case it decides to randomly crash. It automatically saves your work to the app's gallary.

I'm shocked. I can't bring myself to give an outright bad rating because of how much I've gotten out of it in the past, but the app has suddenly become unusable. When it upated, the app moved itself to the first available spot on my phone as if it had just been installed, so that was weird. Started drawing something, tried to save and leave, found out it didn't save, restarted and tried to save a bunch, checked my files and saw it still didn't. Went back and the calibration's super screwed up.
