If you want to “unleash your inner artist” then you will want to grab the amazing Fresh Paint app for Windows Phone 8. The popular app was released awhile back for Windows 8 and it brings the ability to basically paint and create original artwork right from your phone or tablet.
The app itself is relatively easy to use and straightforward, making it a simple choice for those of you want to paint on-the-go. Likewise, with the phone version you can take advantage of your phone’s camera to snap a pic and then hand color it in. Paint your cat, paint a statue, paint your boss...whichever floats your boat, we suppose.
From the app description:
- Realistic oil paint and brushes
- Transform photos into paintings with artistic camera lenses
- Easy sharing with a tap, text message, email or SkyDrive
- Custom mix colors to create the perfect shades
The technology behind Fresh Paint is quite impressive on both the phone and Windows 8 version. It should be ideally suited for kids and adults who have a penchant for drawing or painting.
Pick it up here in the Store. Windows Phone 8 only. Free. 22 MB. 1GB of RAM required.
Thanks, Andrew K., for the tip!
