Auryn Ink Review
paint watercolours anywhere on your iOS and Android device
Painting apps such as this need a good-sized canvas, and so it is that the Google Nexus 7 and other Android tablets prove to be such a good fit with an app that has already gone down very well on the iPad. Certainly for those who wish to replicate the look of a watercolour painting, Auryn Ink is an app that is featured-packed, easy to use and allows the user to express themself freely.
The attention to detail shown by the app’s designers means that you can opt to have a wet or dry canvas. You can choose from a selection of different brushes and adjust the pressure effects they will have on your image. There are plenty of colours, the ability to blend pigments, and ways of controlling the paint and water. It’s a deep app and yet it revolves around a set of simple menus; they don’t get in the way and you can just get down to business.
What we particularly like is the fact that the menus do what they say on the tin. It’s not a matter of having to learn where things are and ponder what they may do, as is the case in some arty apps. It’s all presented in front of you, keeping the flow going. It’s realistic-looking too. You really will see a result that looks as if you have worked with a brush. There is no lagging and the paint works naturally – and for watercolour artists, this is just what you want.
More paper textures and a greater number of undos would make for an improved app, but the low price and number of features paint Auryn Ink in a favourable light.
Feature-packed and appealing to watercolour artists, it’s the non-messy way to express yourself.
