Does not seem to be functional on Snow Leopard. I tried launching the app several times in a row but it always crashes within a few seconds. I created an account just to post this!

Just to remind you, the 0.2 update cannot update to 0.3 as the updater URL was corrupted. 0.3 will be able to update to 1.0 when its released so once you have downloaded this, you will ultimately not need to download it from MacUpdate again!

Please comment as this is the last BETA!

Thank You.

Patterns, custom patterns, FatBits, brush mirrors . . .

The separate windows are also kind of annoying. One reason is that it looks more cluttered; the other reason, which is probably easy to fix, is that if you click on a new tool, you can start using it immediately: you have to click on the main window one to activate it, then click again to start using the tool.

The bomb is a little unnecessary, too. In MacPaint you would double-click the eraser to clear, which made sense. As this may not be obvious, perhaps a clear button would be better--one that you click once and it clears, rather than clicking three times to use the bomb tool.

Also, there's no selector!

I will put this into effect as i also agree with you 100%.

Thank you for your input.
And yes I will add a selector! :)

Ok, fair enough that the icon that you're using is no longer used by Stainless...did you get explicit permission from the artist to use it?

Also, you're still ripping off Apple's iPhoto icon for the "Create A Project" button at the intro screen.

Stop ripping off other people's icons. You have no excuse. There are plenty of good quality freeware/royalty free icons out there for programmers just starting out like you.

Do you work for google? or a cop? If not, relax and don't get so worked up over things that really don't have anything to do with you.

No offense but your grilling the dev, and from the question scheme it seems you have no affiliation w/ google or anyone attached to the icon or you would know the answers your asking.

If google cares so much, they can take care of the problem. If not, let's leave "royalty" disputes out and simply discuss the software. Now that I think of it... do you have right's for that name? I could have swore I saw someone else on the net use the same nick, you two should really square off old west style and see who gets to keep what. j/k, serious though, I hope your response and my response to your response gets deleted. No need for it to be here.

0.3 has been released!

Just to note that 0.3 will be the final BETA, so feed back is really needed in this release!

Please try to comment on this product as i have seen a lack of comments which meant that these BETA have lacked in any purpose!

A ADD-ON example has been put on, this example is the old Intro screen as i think some of you may dislike the new one!

Thank you.

For 0.3 the updater URL has been changed so therefor the update which comes with 0.2 will not work to update to 0.3!

0.3 will be released soon!

Thank you.

Hello!

Just to keep you guys updated! I'm going to release one more BETA [0.3]
This should be the final BETA - in this next release you should see
-Addons more devoloped
-Autosaver that works [late beta tests show that 0.2 doesnt work]
-slimmed down on size [found out updater is using 1mb+]
-more basic interface
-removal of prefences as it has no meaning or point now
-MORE :D

It will be released start of next week - I have exams and lots of work to do so this will delay its progress a tad!

Thank you
