Great app with suggestions to make it better

This is a very well done adaptation of ms paint on iOS. It's getting there, and what's nice is that it's always updating and the developers are very responsive to the reviews.

I have my own thoughts on what could make this app better:
-Having a gallery that allows users to copy and paste between images would be nice and also have connectivity to Files.
-and having more of the features on the desktop version of ms paint I would like because then it would make this app feel more ms paint.
-having layers that you can export, while not true to the spirit of ms paint, would be good for those animating on an iPad who want to attempt ms paint style animations that were popular a decade ago
-I don't really like the mouse buttons that allow you to draw. While the touch function makes it better I feel that just drawing with a stylus being the left click and panning and zooming being touch functions and also keeping the right click button for its intended functions would be nice
-rotating the canvas would be good too


Love this thing!

I’ve been looking for an app that could mimic that retro ms paint look, and this awesome app does the job amazingly well.

Great interface, very simple and easy to use, i like how non obstructive the UI is.

A few things that I think would make it even better would be to:

- add a function to zoom in and out by pinching the screen with two fingers.

- adding a brush/pencil size and color opacity adjustment would be a great plus as a drawing tool.

- Adding some sort of layer functionality (great for more elaborate paintings)

Although sometimes having those basic limitations is what makes for that special retro quality of old drawing softwares. Having those options for convenience and speed would be really nice.

Overall they did a great job on this app, and i’d like to thank the developers for all the time they put into this, i’d be happy to support new versions of Paint 98 in the future.

Retro Awesomeness!!!

Pros - I was looking for MS Paint as an app. This app has the mechanics and functionality of Paint. If you are looking for a simple and basic drawing app look no further.
Con - The tools are a little different. The mouse or touch controls take a few minutes. It would be nice if there was a “reverse direction” button for mouse control.

I definitely recommend this app!
