Pixel art at the tip of your finger!


Swift Pixels

Simple and easy to use drawing application to create pixel art.


  • Unique color palette based on universal color categories. Each color category expands a continuous gamut for that color. You can see how they were generated in this research demo page.
  • Render pixels as simple squares, beads, or a towel.
  • Save small images as PNG images with transparency (alpha/mask), or save them in hi-res and share them with the world :)
  • Load and import pictures from your Photo Library, or directly take a picture.
