Get your kids creative this holiday season with Qixel Kids for iPad!

Welcome to Qixel for kids : a stylish, easy to use pixel painting app for iPad. What can you make with 651 pixels?

This version is exactly the same app as Qixel HD, but with all the social networking links removed, so kids can play without being directed to the web.

Qixel is all about creating minimalist images, retro characters and typography with a limited number of pixels and colour palette. Make art or just use it to chill out - it's the digital equivalent of popping bubblewrap!

I look forward to see what people do with it. There are some suggestions below to get you started, but it's your software to play with. I look forward to seeing your artwork on the Facebook Qixel gallery!

Here's what you can do with Qixel:

- Draw pictures with 4 different pixel types: Squares, Circles, Diamonds and Triangles.

- The canvas background button flips between black or white. This has a very different effect on your qixels.

- Use the darken and lighten buttons to add shade and depth to your art.

- The triangle setting has an extra button: Rotation. Try rotating your triangles 90 degrees to make strange patterns and origami-style art.

- Use Qixel to make quirky typography.

- Write simple messages and greeting cards to send to friends.

- Make cool patterns and abstract backgrounds for websites.

- Create retro game graphics, and then export frames in stages to make animation.

- experiment with colour: great for artists and colour therapy teachers.

Exporting images: (currently 2 methods)

A) The Photo button saves a 1024x768 screenshot to your iPad's camera roll.
If there is a problem, it will be due to your iPad's restrictions. Go to Settings >
General > Restrictions > Privacy > Photos > Switch Qixel on!

B) Hold down the Home button, then quickly press the Power button. This will be a high-resolution image on the iPad Retina.

Note from the developer:

If this app proves to be useful and popular, I will update it. If you have ideas for functionality - please leave feedback on the Appstore and a high rating will help me to carry on with the project!

Enjoy your qixels :)
