Best Windows 8 Apps
16 November 2012
If Fresh Paint never existed, I'd probably only spend half of the time on my Windows 8 laptop. It's one of the most amazing programs I've ever used. Many of my friends have never seen or used Windows 8, but when they saw the Fresh Paint program, they all had to try it! Great job, Microsoft!

I took the opportunity to download this when I first got my Surface RT, not thinking it would amount to much since it was free. However, it is the first program I have ever used with the textures and level of detail that this one has. It is as close to a true brush and canvas experience as you can get and keep your hands clean. My children (ages 2,4,and 6) also love it, so it is easy enough for them to use, but sophisticated enough for me as well. Great great app. Can't recommend highly enough.

I just love this app. I've always loved the feel of real paint, but it is expensive, messy and difficult. This gives me unlimited opportunity to learn and practice and create great stuff with out all the effort/cost/mess.

Of all the apps I have tried, this is the best! It is so like "real time" art creation. As a retired art teacher, I can see the real value of this apps as a fun, creative learning tool. Anyone who has not given this apps a try is missing a wonderful art experience. This apps requires "perspiration as well as inspiration." That is one of the things that makes this apps so exciting! When I finish one painting, I cannot wait to start another. I love sharing my efforts with my friends.

It really is, its an app really built for Win8 and it is really amazing. You can do so many stuff with it that it'll blow your mind. You can transform ordinary photos into extraordinary masterpieces. I'm serious. This is the one of the best free tools out there.

I'm a really big artist, and this app is an amazing help! It is very realistic. It is SO detailed with the different strokes and colors that you can choose from. It has many options for all of you "wannabes"I recommend Fresh Paint!!! 5 stars ALL THE WAY!!! Here are some things this FREE app includes:
Watercolor Paint, Color Pencil, Acrylic, and Oil Pastels
Activities for Disney lovers
Real Life Paintings
BEST APP I HAVE EVER GOTTEN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I have created so many beautiful things in this app, and I love it! Only thing I don't like is the fact that if you accidentally delete a painting, its gone for good. If that changed, this app would be perfect.

Fresh paint and Autodesk SketchBook are 2 best apps! Perfect fort surface pro3

This a great companion application for my touch laptop. I wish I had more tools to manipulate brush types. I guess I am trying to find a match to the autodesk pro software I have used for a few years now on a tablet.
I don't like the subscription purchase for monthly or yearly usage of a program. I do not mind paying for software and feel I'd rather buy a program with limited access to upgrades after a set time.
I don't like constant "upgrades" or as I see it changes to a program that makes it more difficult for me to complete task and sometimes/ many times remove tools that I find useful. Too often program changes eliminate functions that I prefer and more often then not is the reason I purchased the software in the first place. So why would I want to buy into a monthly/ yearly subscription that dismantles the program I wanted to use in the first place.
All that said Fresh Paint is a good app. It gives options that other digiart apps offer and a few nice surprises as well.

"VERY COOL" I adore this app! you can work with 3 or more paintings at a time with different mediums, walk away at anytime, come back later, and your paint brushes are clean and your canvas paint is still wet and blend able! Truly amazing! interruption's? no more ruined brushes from dried on paint. I do wish I could change the brush stroke action and direction so I could use brushes the way I would use real ones. But I am starting to learn a new way to paint. I also wish there was a knife in the oil tool box to scrape off paint for peaks and sharp edges. I am almost sure that would be very hard to do so maybe a sharp angled brush.

The stroke and the color blending feels so real that I was blown away. Lots of kudos to the developers of this sweet app. This is definitely a keeper.

I see stupid people rating this app lower because the addons cost money, this is wrong. You don't need addons to use this app.

I hurriedly updated and was pleasantly surprised to see the Finding Nemo coloring pack! Wow, really hoping there's a lot more goodies beyond this pack.

I use this app sooooo much! It is so fun & easy to use! I would definitely recommend it. Thank you Fresh Paint! :D

Hope this app continues to develop. It could be a great tool for design professionals if it borrowed some features from OneNote. Also wish there was ink option. One MAJOR problem, the new canvas button is dangerous. Spent have a day doing an architectural sketch of a building only to mistakenly press what i assume is the New Canvas button (it is unlabeled) which deleted my work. If that was possible why in the h@ll not label the freaking buttons or have a way to undo that. incredible.

Probably better with a pen. The edge of screen menus should really be disabled or something. They kept getting in the way when I would try to make a stroke from too close to the left or right edge of the screen.
Blending is kind of difficult. It doesn't really compare to working with actual paints, but the pastels are close.

We have identified the source of this graphical problem some of you are experiencing and are currently working with our partners to resolve it. I’m afraid we do not have a timeline for a resolution, but we’ll be sure to communicate the resolution once it is available.

Does it have bugs and some glitches and sometimes doesn't do what you want or think it will do? Sure. Is it the best free-form touch-enabled painting app? Absolutely.

I love love love love................... this app!

Thanks for trying our app! We love the enthusiasm and are inspired by the great paintings you are posting on our FB page.
If you are experiencing brown blocks or strange painting marks in the 8.1 app this is a known issue with a specific graphics driver. We are working with the manufacturer to get this resolved.
If you run into any crashes or lost paintings, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org as we'd like to investigate.
To get the latest version of Fresh Paint please update Windows to Windows 8.1. We have a ton of new features and bug fixes.

Its a great app but a layer tool would be great to have
1 September 2014
Most importantly it needs to support layers. Until the app supports layers, it's a kid's toy at best currently.
13 February 2015
Wow! I do not think if Fresh Paint has a nice feature that attracted me to wear it.
15 January 2015
All of the sudden it's no longer working and every time I open the app it closes! Fix it plz.

I love the app, but there is a major glitch preventing freshpaint from opening, or rather the app opens, but to a black screen, then crashes if clicked on.
