A 7/1/05 update?!
This is a joke, right? I hope. Or strictly maintenance for legacy or nostalgia?

This app looks like it's from the dark ages. (well perhaps as if it was just upgraded to 10.0 from OS 9)

The transparency palette is OS 9 style. The color palette displays the system colors.


It's got no facilities for reasonable use on a large monitor. Looks as if it was built for 800 x 600 and smaller. At 1920 x 1440 you need a loupe!

Tools are rudimentary drawing and basic shapes that were enough back when icons were 32 pixels square and 8 bit color. This is virtually useless in the age of sophisticated almost photorealistic icons with subtle translucencies.

Lol. $25?
That would be like paying $25 for Apple's calculator widget.

Uncommonplace (developer)

Constructive criticism is a lot more useful than a list of complaints. If you think it's wrong, tell me what would be right and I'm much more likely to implement your suggestions.

I am considering removing the patterns palette, since it is rather old-fashioned. On the other hand, why remove a feature? Perhaps I'll make it optional for those who still enjoy creating pixel art.
