Review Painter Mobile
A highly advanced drawing app
Author: Jay Feldman
Date: 19 Apr 2017, tested on ASUS Nexus 7 (2013)
Lots of settings, simple design
Functions slowly, non-intuitive interface
Painter Mobile for Android is a feature rich drawing app with some cool features, however, I found it a little clumsy to use.
Painter Mobile is a highly sophisticated drawing app. Just open a blank canvas or load a picture from your gallery and let your creativity soar. The tool set features a host of different brushes, pencils and tweaks to help you create your work of art. Projects can be resumed in progress and even shared to other platforms for use with advanced editions of this product, where you can finish off your work with a professional touch.
I found the interface to be a little cumbersome and tedious to work with. It just wasn't very intuitive or user friendly. There's a heavy learning curve here that will time time to overcome acclimate to, however, if you have the patience and are willing to commit, this could be a very effective drawing app. The paint tool was neat because it has an automatic color picker, so you could just hover the circular tool around different parts of the image and it would automatically select similar colors within its circumference; just a simple click to alter the tone of the entire selection.
Most of the best tools are locked and require an upgrade, but there are plenty here to get you started and help decide if this is the right app for you. Just be sure you're happy with how it all works before buying anything.
Painter Mobile is a highly advanced drawing app, however, the serious learning curve and somewhat difficult interface will take a big commitment before it becomes second nature. This isn't an app where you can just jump on in and get busy.
