BATTLE OF THE APPLES 2
PaintJoy App in (Android) Galaxy Tab
I’m painting apples in different apps to compare what it feels like to work in them on my two tablets, an iPad and a Samsung Galaxy Tab.
The Galaxy Tab touch screen is fast and responsive. As far as I can tell, there is not that much difference between the touch screens of the Galaxy Tab and the iPad.
The PaintJoy app has a wide spectrum of colours, adjustable for tone and transparency.
There’s an array of some 17 interesting brushes. I particularly like the pen, which gives a lovely variable line. Adjust your brush width with a slider.
PaintJoy Pro will replay your brush strokes as a movie, so I was able to relive a few doomed efforts and maybe learn from them.
Intrigued by the Shape brush, which created a flat filled shape, I eventually drew the apple here.
PaintJoy offers no layers. You can import a photo to draw over, but it is not on a separate layer. Erase your doodle and you erase the underlying image too.
You have to press special icons to zoom or drag the canvas, which is, well, a drag.
PaintJoy is certainly limited, but it does have some very nice brushes.
