Today’s recently upgraded Pixelmator app will cost $ 4.99 for those who don’t currently own it, but if you are a fan of the Mac app then this $ 5 download truly is a no-brainer. Packing functions that would typically be reserved for a desktop class app but pressed onto iOS with user-friendly controls, Pixelmator arguably takes the crown as the very best image modifying app on both iPhone and iOS.

Surprisingly lightweight considering all that it is capable of, Pixelmator for iOS is particularly crucial as more and more individuals utilize their iPhones as their only source of photographs.

With online photo usage originating from smartphones increasingly more, and standard video cameras less and less, modifying images directly on the device they were caught with is something that is a big draw for lots of. Toss in the powerful tool set and the low rate and Pixelmator is a winner.


The devices included in Pixelmator tick all the boxes that you are likely to require, with image retouching and editing all capable right from the iPhone. If you do find yourself having to make the jump to the desktop simply because you need a mouse for complicated edits for example, then all of the Pixelmator apps benefit from cloud technology to ensure images and their edits are perfectly synced throughout devices. If you questioned exactly what image modifying in the future might resemble, then you need look no further than Pixelmator.
