We're not exactly sure when this update happened but according to one tipster PicsArt just got updated to a universal (UWP) app for Windows 10 and Windows 10 Mobile.
We can confirm that version 2.7 is now in the Store and runs beautifully on our Lumia 950 and full desktop PC, with a snazzy new layout. In fact, it looks simply fantastic on our mobile version due to the bright colors and clean minimalist design.
We reviewed PicsArt last year for our Hidden Gems campaign and came away impressed with its design and abilities. In case you are not familiar, here is the app description:
Some of the main features include:
- A global community of creatives
- Hundreds of photo editing tools
- Customizable filters and effects
- Text, sticker, and image overlays
- Collage maker
- Photo camera
- Drawing and painting tools with layers
- Advanced artistic brushes
Not only are we thrilled to see this update (which is hopefully new, sorry if it's old), but we are stoked about trying it out across our various Windows 10 devices.
PicsArt is completely free to use without limitation, but you can buy extra add-ons via in-app purchases.
Thanks, Chauhan S., for the tip!
