I love this because I love art and this helps me work on my art even on the computer! The only thing I don't like is that you can't control the pen line that well. Aside from that, this program/app thing is awesome!

I Love Fresh Paint!

I am not an artist, however fresh paint gives me the opportunity to work with different types of canvas/paper - - I believe it used to have a feature of being able to trace?? Gone I guess forever, perhaps legal issue? again I'm a novice, but I like the fact I can use different kinds of brushes with what seems to be wet paint upon application! Oh and it is free. Never crashes my computer. However I had purchased some packages and then got a new computer. Did not transfer with me over to new. So, that was a bummer. Please done take it off!!

It's pretty good for a phone... Needs pressure guided opacity, and a stylus other than that Great app 4/5

A good painting programme

This is a really great paining programme for the Surface. It works both in laptop and tablet mode, and it also works with and without the Surface Pen. It is very easy to understand and use. The commands and painting supplies are given by pictures. There are many different options: type of canvas, textures, colors, pencils, brushes and more. I am not a professional artist, but I like to draw and design things, and this gives me exactly what I need. There is even a handy guide to using the programme available for kindles called "Fresh Paint Manual for Beginners from basics to advanced Tips & Tricks" and its helping me to learn how to use it and do all kinda neat stuff! 10/10 would reccommend!

I've been waiting to get my hands on this app since I've seen it a couple of years ago in Microsoft's ThinkNext event. Nicely done

Best Painting App Across Windows iOS Android

Fresh paint is the best app ever. nothing compares to fresh paint. the realism of the various painting mediums. Bravo Microsoft! Wish you had it for purchase on iOS too (iPad).

I love this app when I'm bored anywhere or just need a little chill time. I dont like that you can only have the portrait of the art in landscape mode. I also do not like how in the Microsoft tablet versions, there are coloring pages you can color but in the windows phone version, you don't have that option. I would also like if the colors you've created were saved so you could get the exact same color next time. Otherwise, it's a great app, worth the money (IT'S FREE) and is enjoyable for the whole family.
