Interesting, pretty, but weird
Playing with this app for a few minutes, here are my immediate impressions.
- It's lots of fun to play with.
- The colors and textures are beautiful.
- The basic file saving interface is weird.
- The app ALWAYS wants to save your images in the "Pictures" folder, regardless whether you've previously selected another preferred folder.
- The app seems to want you to save your file BEFORE starting your painting, rather than when you're satisfied with the results.
- If you make changes, you must create a new painting rather than updating the old one.
- The app seems to be using pre-digitized splatters, and it's easy to spot the repetitions. It'd be better if there were more samples, or if the app could randomize the splatters more.
- Switching from default image size to full screen reveals a bigger canvas. Switching out of full screen mode crops the canvas back down, throwing away any work done at the full screen resolution.
- While there are many different brush filters, most of them look extremely similar to the untrained eye. A few (like pointillize) look truly different.
- I haven't been able to get the camera interface to work in any logical way. It seems to follow some movements and ignore others.
For $0.99, this certainly isn't a waste of money… but I hope the developers will fix some of the weird behaviors and make it act more like a normal Mac app.
