  • Definitely worth trying

    By Splodgey the robot
    This app is really great for making and animating sprites. For what you’re getting is really great compared to other pixel art related apps on mobile, but I don’t find it that worth the price. It provides the basics and a helpful guide on how to use it, but for 4.99 is a bit on the pricey side for me. Some features that, perhaps, could make it worth it would be a lightening and darkening tool, better onion-skinning, resizing, and the ability to change the background. Otherwise, it’s really helpful.
  • Photo Blur

    By BillyBobJod
    Ever Time I try to export my photo to camera role it keeps sending it blurry. I’ve tried fixing it multiple times but nothing seems to be working.
  • Love it but a question

    By Starkilla24
    So I am making a bunch of houses for an app I’m working on. Upon the houses I made, is there a way I can design the inside of the house only upon entering the house. Or do I set that with the unity system.
  • I Love This App!

    This app is amazing and so fun to use. I probably spent 1 hour on this and didn’t get bored one bit! I would definitely recommend this app! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
  • Great app & a few thoughts

    By A, B, & C
    This is a simple to use app that is a great value. A few feature additions could help. 1. I’d like to be able to save color palettes and use the across projects. If that’s in the app, it’s unclear how to do it. I see “retro 1” but no ability to change palettes? 2. I’d like to see a true-size preview view. If I’m editing a 64x64 image, I would like to be able to tap a button to preview it at that size or be able to zoom out on the image until it is displayed true size. As it stands, zoom out is locked at a level where The whole 64x64 image is zoomed it to fill the entire edit area.
  • Almost perfect

    By CadeAaronKelly
    Love the app. Very easy to use, lots of options, animation is great, imports are easy to work with. It has a few minor issues though. Scrolling to another section is difficult most of the time it decides to just paint that area or select it. I would love if there was like another icon say a cursor or hand that you can select to make navigation easier. Also a redo button to go with the undo and a cut option along side the copy and paste. Final note is I’m working on a massive sprite sheet and the lines of selection box on that is like 3 pixels so it makes working on those sheets difficult. Overall great app.

  • Ideas!! (I also LUV IT) 👌🏻👍🏻

    By Minecraftdiaries
    I love this Sprite creator app!!! But I have an idea!!! Can you guy(s) add it so you can do a 90 degrees turn and all of those? Also make it so you can redo, like undo but redo to, like I accidentally pressed undo but I had to re do it, so pls add a redo button to!!! And maybe resizing? I don't know if you will add this one, but can you make it so we can put letter sprites to??? Like how I'm typing right now, and we can do that but when we type in the app it makes it into a Sprite! Thanks for reading!!! ============================================== Update: by resizing I mean like the drawing, to make it bigger smaller and those things, the reason is because I found a PERFECT sprite sheet, but the sprite pixels were a little to big on size, so I couldn't use it!!! If you can add the resizing for the drawings, that would be awesome!!! Also maybe u can make it so it lags a little less? I use the app on my iPhone, idk if that's making it lag, but when I use the paint bucket in large areas it then lags and then completes, and one extra request (sorry) but maybe make it so we have a bigger color inventory!!! Oh also can you make it so when we animate the video, or upload it, when in the first or anything with something covering the frame (kinda like when we make the pixel art than upload it) then the background of the other frame stays (if the other frames have png in front)!!! Thank You!!! 👌🏻👌🏻👌🏻 ============================================== Update: ok I found several problems now, with the new update, and photoshop compatibility! Now when I export a gif, it does not work, so I used the screen recorder, but anyways, it just makes a black screen an does nothing! Also sometimes my transparent backgrounds are white, but I don’t really have a problem with that! Now with PhotoShop, whenever I export the image to photoshop, it’s good, but sometimes when I export it back... it messes some things up for some reason, once before I uploaded something to mfgg.net, I noticed that there were lots of pixelated problems! Like there were some purple pixels, some darker but hard to notice pixels, etc. anyway also what happened was recently, I was making a mario, until my computer broke down, so I exported the sprites to my phone to make the sprites, but for some reason, the colors were different, but they were not! It made it look like the colors were different, but in reality, they were the same colors, it took me 2 minutes to figure that out. Anyway f you can fix these, and add what I said previously, that would be great!!! Thanks!!! #Cosix2017 ==============================================
  • good app but exporting needs work

    By Anonymous elf man
    when i draw something in the app it looks great and easy to use. but exporting it looks weird and asks you to save at a larger size x1 x2 x3 but the size needs to stay the 32x32 and there is no indication in pixels how big the export will be . its important that it export exact. If I export at x1 it comes out a blurry mess unless sqved to email and its not real friendly saved in camera roll. It could use some exporting instruction or something. I am trying out other export options and noticed some improvement using email, but the other issue remains the background is white even though i set it to clear.
  • Great app for quick sprite making

    By nandaron
    Really nice app. Feels a lot like a mobile version of paint.net. The ui is clean and understandable. My suggestion would be to add file names to the top of the screen while editing. Would reccomend if you like to draw sprites on the go for later fine tuning in a game engine.
