Infinite Painter

I am going to give my reviews on several android painting apps and I want to start with my favorite, Infinite Painter. This app is made by Sean Brakefield and is one of the top android painting apps. It has 130 brushes split into 8 categories. The categories are Default, Pencils, Calligraphy, Textures, Shapes, Harmony, Deco, and 8-Bit. The Default brushes are the oil, acrylic, watercolor, airbrush, toothbrush and more. Pencils and Calligraphy are several different kinds of pencils and pens. Textures are rough or sketchy looking. Shapes are hearts, circles, etc. Harmony is the brushes from the open source harmony project. Deco brushes are art deco designs and 8-Bit is pixelated style brushes.The canvas size can go up to 2048 x 2048 pixels.
I like this painting app the best because it mimics natural brushes.The Galaxy Note version of this app can be set to make the s pen for painting and your finger for smudging and blending the paint. This feature is just like traditional painting where you smudge paint or pastel into the canvas with your finger. Infinite Painter has layers, a reference window, a tracing function, guides, line shapes, and brush adjustments. The brushes can be adjusted for size, jitter, blending, and pressure. The following screenshots show the current UI for Infinite Painter. It has been redesigned several times and just keeps getting better and better. I have also included to paintings that I did in Infinite Painter. They are called"Ghost of the Past" and "Fall Shower". Prints of these are available at

I've just downloaded a beta version of this app and the new interface is fabulous! If you want to be a beta tester go to
