Pixel Playground

The Fresh Tool for Retro Graphics

Do pixel editors have to be as retro as pixel art itself? No! Professionals, hobbyists and newcomers – rejoice! Pixel Playground is here, and it's powerful, beautiful and simple.

"I'm a HUGE fan of Pixel [Playground]! It's the only iOS pixel art app that's as well designed as iOS itself. Almost every design decision is perfect."

"This is Absolutely what you should expect from a great pixel art tool. Some of the tools here work like magic. Nice touches everywhere in the app."

“Extremely feature rich but not bloated. Love the factual names of the colours too.”

"This really is a great pixel editor. The interface is refreshing and there’s a surprisingly robust toolset augmented with useful gesture controls. Pixel drawing is precise."

"The tutorials are fun and very effective at teaching the app’s features."

"Inuitive, fast. Really surprised to see several really cool tools. Lock color. Draw to select. Long press to sample. Nice."
