Art App - ClearPainting Free for iOS

Editors' Review

Download.com Staff Sep 2, 2013

Art App is exactly as it sounds -- a drawing, painting, and sharing app for your artistic side, albeit with more than a few limitations. This app suffers from a diverse range of issues, including buttons that are very small and, at times, hard to hit, limited editing tools, and a sharing interface that omits some of the most popular options on the iOS platform. While adults might not be drawn in here, Art App might appeal to a younger audience.

Art App loads directly to the drawing interface on your iPhone, allowing you to immediately start drawing with the various tools onscreen. These include numerous color options, sliders for both brush size and opacity, and deleting tools. The app stops here, though, not offering custom fillers, paint buckets, selection tools, or other options that are typically found in comparable free art apps. This is the "Paint" of iOS painting apps and while that's not necessarily a bad thing, it does signal a limited range of features for those who want robust art creation apps. Probably the biggest issue we had with Art App, however, is the size of the buttons. This app tries to minimize screen space used by tools, so the buttons are extremely small, which can be frustrating when you try to tap the right one.

That said, a child will have a blast drawing on an iPhone or iPod Touch device with Art App, and while sharing is limited to photo library, e-mail, and Twitter, those options allow you to get those drawings to the world with just a few quick taps.

Developer's Description

Art App - ClearPainting is a unique drawing and painting app differ from other drawing apps in the app store. Art App provides easy to use, unique interface for people who want to create very nice looking graphics and design arts, and to store them in the Photo album. Most unique feature of Art App is that it provides opacity/transparency changing colors where each color can be set with different opacity level, thus colors can be semi-transparent/translucent, creating magical mix of colors when colors overlap each other. It also allows you to use photos from your photo album as background image. The background image can be kept or removed for your final artwork, thus making your art work unique and clean-looking without the photo background. (To do this, draw over a photo background, and then simply change the background image to plain White or Black.) Art App - ClearPainting is fun for adults and kids who want to create clean and nice looking painting and drawing artworks by tracing photographs and images, or just simply to create very unique semi-transparent color paintings (just like using watercolor or highlighter pens). * Supports front and rear cameras on iPads, iPhone and iPod touch devices.* Universal App! Supports high resolution Retina display and iPad screen resolution. * Also supports both portrait and landscape screen orientations.* Show/Hide Toolbar* Option to save artwork with or without background* Load saved artwork on top of existing background* Share your artworks with Email, Twitter and Facebook!We hope you enjoy Art App - ClearPainting!
