  • Pixelmator for iPhone Officially Launches in the App Store


    Thursday morning, Pixelmator has officially launched on the iPhone, as we reported it would on Wednesday.

    Pixelmator, which is a very feature-packed image editor available on both iOS and Mac OS X, has been available for the iPad for quite some time. The extension to the iPhone gives the application the ability to reach more users and replace the discontinued Adobe Photoshop Touch for iOS.

    For those that already owned the iPad version of Pixelmator, the iPhone version can be downloaded free of charge. Otherwise, it's a $4.99 download from this App Store link.

    In addition to iPhone support, version 2.0.1 of the application includes a handful of new features and bug fixes and performance improvements, all which are outlined in the App Store's change log below:

    New features

    • Pixelmator is now available for iPhone.
    • Metal-powered Distort tools allow you to pinch, bump, twirl, and warp areas of your images.
    • The Clone tool lets you duplicate areas of your image.
    • The new Repair Selection feature instantly repairs selected areas.

    Other improvements and bug fixes

    • There are now more pre-designed shapes and text styles for you to choose from.
    • We’ve added additional layer templates, too.
    • The new Hue adjustment setting lets you customize the look of Light Leak and Bokeh effects.
    • The enhanced Repair tool interface now lets you cancel repairing while in process, see the percent progress of the repair, and hide the layers palette while still repairing.
    • You can now zoom into your image more than 1000 percent while painting, if you like.
    • Working with text and shape layers is now much faster.
    • Fonts are now sorted just as they should be — alphabetically.
    • You can now see the color value while adjusting the white balance with the Eyedropper.
    • Now you can share more than one image per session via AirDrop.
    • Previously, a newly added layer would appear at the top of the layers palette. Now, it is placed above the selected layer.
    • Full Screen mode now hides the bottom bar of the interface.
    • Previously, the popover menus were hidden after rotating the device. We fixed that.
    • We’ve updated to the latest stylus SDKs for a better painting experience.
    • The app used to quit unexpectedly when it was put to sleep while repairing. Not anymore.
    • We’ve also enhanced the overall performance of the app so you can enjoy a much more seamless image-editing process.
    Pixelmator will be most-enjoyed by those with iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, which have larger displays that make image editing easier. Moreover, later Apple devices with the ability to take advantage of the Metal graphics API will experience the best image-editing results.

    Pixelmator for iPhone requires iOS 8.3 to be installed, which was clearly an Apple-influenced requirement.

      So, these aholes want you to sacrifice a JB for their app? Why couldn't they not put the 8.3 or above restriction? Idiots

      Check out the design of the app, and the design of the application icon, which oddly looks like the old iPhoto application icon. Then, check out the Pixelmator Web page, and the e-mail that tells you Pixelmator was ready for the iPhone today.

      Everything looks Apple-made. I smell an acquisition here. I'm pretty sure that was Apple's doing and not Pixelmator.
