What's New

Fixed bug where app could be rotated to landscape mode even though it wasn't designed for it.

App Description

A New Kind of Pixel Editor
Make your own pixel tiles and arrange them to create beautiful pixel art.
The Grix is fast, fun, simple, and surprising.

“A simple drag-and-drop interface makes creating pieces a breeze; users can choose from several different colors and patterns with which to create their art.”
– Nicholas Deleon, The Daily

“This is an awesome little app. So much care has gone into making it, and it shows everywhere you look. The sound effects are spot-on, the text labels for the color palettes are gorgeous, even the Share menu icons for Twitter and Facebook are pixellated. They’ve thought about every little detail.”
– Giles Turnbull, Cult of Mac

“...our friends at eBoy together with Felt Tip have brought something new and exciting.”
– Filip, Creative Applications Network
