If you have been in search of a great tool for your artwork or even handwritten notes on photos, then Ballpoint might be just what you have been waiting for. This new app lets you create or update your items with precise lines, full zoom, and a high-definition canvas with an easy-to-use interface.
You can choose from pen, pencil, marker, or airbrush options with opacity and size adjustments for just the right look. Eliminate part of your image easily with the eraser and use the freeform lasso tool for specific selected areas. If you make a mistake or even decide you didn’t, you can undo or redo your actions up to 100 levels. The color palette holds 24 colors at once and uses simple sliders for modifications.
The canvas can accommodate images up to 4,096 by 4,096 pixels and there is a full zoom feature to access those tiny spots. The auto-save element means you will not lose your changes, so you can relax while you create your masterpiece. Import images from your library or create a new one using the default sizes or a custom height and width.
Ballpoint has a very simple, smooth interface and the various features work very well. Choosing colors from the palette and changing the opacity and sizing of the tools are done with responsive sliders which makes adjustments a piece of cake. It’s apps like this that make me wish I had more artistic talent.
Ballpoint is universal and available for just $0.99 on the App Store.
