Ratings and Reviews

Needs One More Useful feature!

Jordan D Brown

Needs the ability to revolve images and text and turn them anywere on a 360˚ angle. It would create more stylish looks to projects and would improve the app massively.

Does not support transparency


Bought this because it stated it supported transparency. It doesn't. In fact, it does precious little - even less than Paint and that's quite an achievement! This is a really poor application and I feel I have been tricked out of my money. I know I only paid £1.99, but I still feel like I have been robbed. AVOID THIS APP!!

Great support


I take back my previous negative comments - Andy at the Help Desk has been very helpful and is helping me fix the bugs
