5/5 stars

Best paint app!! New version lets you export poster size for print!!!

I tried several free paint apps and did a lot of research on paid apps, before deciding on Brushes and I am certain I made a good decision. If you want to have any detail in your paintings, you'll need one of the paid apps. The free versions are lacking in either zoom, opacity settings or the ability to undo. Brushes has excellent implementation of all of these features and more.

In particular, I compared this to the apps Colors, Squiggles and Flipbook, which are all good, but I found Brushes to be a perfect fit for my needs.

Update: The new version lets you access your paintings from your computer via wi-fi! Great addition
Also, anything painted with the new version, when transferred to your computer, can be played back to see how it was painted.
Best of all, you can export new paintings at higher resolution than it was originally painted at! It uses the original brush strokes played back at high-res, so it doesn't get pixelated. Make a poster size print from your brushes paintings!!

5/5 stars


I just spent five hours "painting" while crossing the country on an airplane. This is such a great toy. Five stars without a doubt. I can't get over how realistically it imitates the painting experience with the ability to control brush stroke and paint viscosity. It even surpasses the experience by allowing you to paint in layers. I only wish my fingers were smaller.

5/5 stars

This app has changed the way I draw.

I love the layers, different brushes, and the color wheel. I've drawn soo many things on this app that look so much better than what I draw on other apps.
Thank you, I highly recommend this app to all artist out there :)
