Aseprite Mobile Version?

Hey @dacap,

I know that a mobile version was never promissed, but do you think that we can hope for a port in the future?

I’m asking this because ever since we started our company, we’ve been using IPad Pro as a valuable work asset, using Procreate has been a part of our workflow, and it works greatly. And after using Pixaki, the main pixelart development app (I guess), it does not deliver an experience even close to Aseprite, as it is my main reference for pixel art work.

As I’m not a coder myself and don’t understand how Aseprite was made, I can only hope there will be a mobile version anytime soon.

So the question is: Can we expect a mobile version in the future?

Thanks :slight_smile:

I’ve done some something for a mobile version, but it needs a lot of work yet. Anyway it would probably be a different kind of creature (Aseprite, as it is, isn’t suitable for touch interfaces :sob:)

Yeah, I think you’d have to have more fine-grained control over what touch does.

For example, default to a move/resize action on touch before allowing the user to switch to a pen/spray/fill/etc. tool.

Yeah a mobile version would be super cool, I’m in a similar position using pixaki on the go but missing a lot of the Asesprite functionality. Understand it’s a big ask though

The version on android would be salvation. So many mobile editors, but none have the features that Aseprite has.

It seems to me enough to realize a moving canvas with two fingers and so on, as in other editors. And move all the buttons (even if they will be “packed in long and not quite comfortable panels”). All this does not matter. The main thing on mobile is the functionality itself from the desktop aseprite. So that the mobile version could also work with mixing indexed palettes and so on.
If the aseprite with its functions turns out on mobile devices, it will be the best of them all. I bought the desktop version, and I will buy the mobile version with joy, but if only there will be desktop’s “functionality core”.

But I’m sorry for my ardent insert. I really would like to aseprite on android.:roll_eyes: Thanks even for trying.

It woul be ultra great for Android…

An android version would be very good to use with these new modern tablets with descktop interface and touch pen with the Galaxy Tab S7 LTE.
