Paint X is a classic paint application that you can use to draw, color, and edit pictures. You can use Paint X like a digital sketchpad to make simple pictures, creative projects, or to add text and designs to other pictures, such as those taken with your digital camera.

This tried-and-true program is easier to use—and fun, too. The realistic digital "brushes" will bring your pictures to life in shades of watercolor, crayon, and calligraphy. And the ribbon—the strip across the top of the window that shows what a program can do—displays choices out in the open rather than in menus.

Wow, that is a sharp looking app. I hope some more promo codes come out soon as I just went to exactly $7 on my iTunes account.

advertising in macrumors. anyway, looks like a good app. but what does it do that I can't do in pixelmator already?
This advertising is specifically allowed for App Store apps.

As for the differences, this is a drawing program and Pixelmator is designed for photo editing. Although by the nature of what is being done, there will be overlap in functionality.
