Customer Reviews

Nice, but not perfect.

As you would expect, limited when compared to the full application but much of the character is retained. Dropped a star for zooming, not scrolling, when two fingers are used on the trackpad, which is really, really irritating.

Get used to the fans quickly spooling up when using Painter Lite.
