Pixaki – Create pixel art

Download: AppStore


Pixaki is a powerful pixel art creation app for iPad. It features many of the same features found in desktop apps — such as custom canvas sizes, layers, precise color selection and customisable palettes — but with a gorgeous multi-touch interface that is just right for iPad. Whether you’re creating 8-bit game characters or vast isometric cityscapes, Pixaki has the tools you’ll need in an app you’ll love.

Creating pixel art with Pixaki is every bit as accurate as using a mouse and cursor. Pixaki lets you smoothly zoom in up to 250x with a simple pinch gesture to give you unparalleled precision. It turns out that pixel art and iPad are an awesome combination.

“It’s a great way to kick back on the couch and create the 8-bit scene of your dreams.” — The Verge
“…intuitive touchscreen controls and clever upscaling tech for usage elsewhere.” — The Guardian
“Create your own minimal masterpiece with Pixaki.” — Creative Bloq
