Price drop! Pixelmator goes from $5 to $1 – top App Store image editor on sale

Arguably the App Store’s best image editor and manipulator has just significantly dropped its price. For users that weren’t convinced by our previous 4.7-star review of Pixelmator, now that it’s only $1/£0.49 in the App Store, why not?

iOS users take so many photos on their device, it makes sense to have an easy-to-use and feature-rich image editor on their device. While Apple’s stock Photos app has a few image editing options, it pales in comparison to the likes of Pixelmator.

Here’s the blurb:

“Pixelmator is a powerful, full-featured, layer-based image editor that lets you touch up and enhance images, sketch and paint, as well as create advanced image compositions on iPad and iPhone alike.

“Pixelmator has everything you need — whether you’re a mobile photographer, mobile painter, or mobile graphic designer — all in one easy-to-use app.”

The app is currently one of Apple’s Editors’ Choices in the App Store. It’s also a universal iOS app which means you only pay once and can then use it across iPhone and iPad.
