Paint Now! Edit Images on the Go on Windows Mobile
A simple image editor like Microsoft Paint always comes in handy when you want to make changes to an image quickly or do a quick sketch without being buried alive under the overwhelming and often unnecessary range of features offered by high-end photoshopping software.
XDA member menos has created just such a handy editing tool, but for use on our mobiles. Through the Paint Now! application, you can add shapes, doodles and effects to pictures stored on your Windows Phone without having to be near a computer. Paint Now! also lets you rotate, crop and flip images before being given the choice to convert them to a more suitable file type.
The app doesn’t ask for much to run – just a touchscreen device running Windows Mobile 5 or higher and .NET Compact Framework version 3.5. Pick it up in the application thread.
