    It's the ONLY one I use. After I release my game, I'll put a word in for you. UI is slick. Recommend this for everyone.

    I am hooked after 5 minutes! While I am sure in a few days the interface will make more sense to me I agree that the palette interface is a bit strange. I am excited to see future updates, this is already an amazing app, seriously well worth the very modest price! Thank you!

    Great app for doing sprite work, animation works well, you can see previous frame semi transparent. Great stuff. I'd love it if it had layers as it would be great for animating sprites.

    But could use a better name and icon. The current ones made me overlook this app numerous times and the current ones dont do the app justice. Oh, and dont listen to the comments saying the UI is hard to use. It's perfect. With the amount of features you already have it would make the screen cluttered if you had icons all over the place.

    Great app! Here's some constructive critique: Wish it supported the Note stylus better. The sensivity of painting is slightly too low when using the pen. 5 stars for better stylus support! :)

    I've tested several apps, none of them is "complete" , but Let's 8bit gets closer. However I have a few suggestions: +The color palette manager is quite "weird", it really takes time to set a custom palette... + It would be great to be able to flip and rotate a selection + Layers... layers, please! *-* + The interface could be less confusing. Tools selection could be a row of icons; Save/Loa
