Pixel Art App Review!

Hey Everyone!

Today I want to do a quick review ofย  a phone app that is keeping me sane lately haha. It is called “Pixel Art” created by Easybrain. It has a 4.8 out of 5 rating and has over 10 million downloads. If you like the review and wat to try it you can get it on the google Play Store: Here! and the Apple Store: Here!

Lets begin! This is a literal paint by number app. For someone like me it is nice to have a ‘game’ to play that isn’t competitive. When I get stressed or need something to do I can open this app and get lost in the process. They upload new art everyday.

The app is free with paid features. You can get it for free and unlock other pieces to paint, if you want to. I haven’t done that because there are soo many other options that you really don’t need to if you don’t want to. With this app being mostly free there are a couple ads that run, but nothing overbearing. I have been using this app for a while now and it hasn’t ever gotten to the point where they have bothered me.

Lets get into the app itself. When you load it up you see this simple start page.

1

From there are are greeted with a lonnnng list of pictures that you can paint. You will notice some have locks in the top right corner. This means that you have to pay to get access to that picture. You will also notice some of the pictures have a 3-D icon at the top left. That is an image that you will rotate and paint all sides. They are a bit tougher to manage, but still fun.

2

Again you can scroll through a ton of images. On the bottom you will see that you were in the library. Once you tap the ‘My Works you can see your partial and completed images. You can see some of mine below.

3

Some are crazy detailed and others are simple. They really have something for everyone. When you tap an image and start you will see it like this. 4

You tap the number you want to use and tap the small square that also has that number. Real simple. You will need to use two fingers to zoom in and out to see better and keep it manageable. 5

When you complete an image you can apply a filter. I don’t think any of them look great, but you might. 6

7

Another thing I haven’t worried about much are the ‘Create’ option. you can create an image with a video or a picture. It is really neat I just haven’t done it. The ‘More’ tab just has some basic settings an a quick walk through of how to use the app.

I think the rating of 4.8 out of 5 stars is very appropriate. For anyone looking for some quick, and easy fun this might be the app for you!

I hope you enjoyed the review, and I’ll be back tomorrow for “Coffee Talk” ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€

Coffee Talk

Hey Everyone!

This is a little later, but a “Coffee Talk” all the same.

This is there first time I have been at my desk for more than 2 minutes all morning. I’m super glad it is Friday!

Tomorrow we go back to my wife’s home town. We have made our appointment with the lady at the modular home company. We will meet with her and do a walk through as well as explore our other options with them. I was able to talk with my co-worker who also got a home from the same area, although it was 10 years ago. I think the rates are very similar still. He got a 2 story house for around $118,000 and had his own basement done for another $50,000. We had a single story ranch priced with a full basement for around $169,000. It is over our price point I think, for what we want but the rates seem to even out a bit. We will just have to wait and see. We need to not get ahead of ourselves as we still have to speak with her grandparents about the whole thing.

Like I mentioned I have been busy all morning and hope I can have some down time the rest of the day. Fingers crossed haha. Not necessarily “down” time but slower requests.

The depressing part of my day is realizing that my student loan payments come out today. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ It is tough to see $700 disappear in an instant haha. This also reminds me of my Children International sponsor child Abel! My auto payment for that comes out the same day as my student loans. I am still waiting on a response to the food and gift I sent for him and his family. His birthday is January 9th, so I sent his family some traditional food items, and I bought him a soccer ball and some orange Fanta. I guess that is huge over there. They, from what I hear, send pictures when the family comes and gets the items at the local town center. I am patiently waiting to see his face again. ๐Ÿ˜€

That is about it. I hope you all have a great weekend, and I’ll try to do the same. I’ll see you all again Monday with an update on the weekend! ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€
