Pixel Maker for Android

By Vivid Helix Free

Developer's Description

A pixel art editor built from the ground up specifically for Android and touch interfaces.

This app also contains a lot of minor usability improvements:

- when using the pen or eraser, tapping again on a single pixel you've changed to undo it to its previous color

- when using the fill (bucket) tool, dragging will switch to pencil

- when the eraser is selected, changing color will switch to pencil

- when drawing using the pencil, the app will interpolate between tap event locations to draw an uninterrupted line

- tap anywhere outside of the selection to apply it

Feel free to email me if you can think of more usability changes to streamline your pixel art creation process.

Free version supports canvas sizes from 8x8 to 32x16 pixels.

PRO version only features:

- canvas size from 8 to 512 pixels wide or tall

- loading existing images from SD card

This app uses icons from http://icons8.com/android-icons. Pixel art in screenshots are RPG icons from http://7soul1.deviantart.com/art/420-Pixel-Art-Icons-for-RPG-129892453.

Many thanks to Arne and DawnBringer for their awesome palettes!
