Quick App: Paintbox

While we wait for the more robust apps that Palm’s PDK is sure to bring to the photo editing space when they finally begin to trickle into the App Catalog at some point in the future, there are a few applications in the Catalog that allow us to play around with our photos in the mean time.

Paintbox ($0.99 in the App Catalog) is a fun, lightweight paint-like utility for webOS. You can import any photo currently on your device into the program, paint on the image with selectable brush sizes and colors, add text, and add simple shapes. Drawing lines with the brush tool works decently well with the Pre’s accurate touchscreen. And while it’s anywhere close to Photoshop Mobile in terms of functionality by any means, but it’s a great way to add a quick line of text or a simple drawing to a photo while on the go.
 
There’s no way to export photos from the program other than taking a screenshot of your finished work just yet, but it’s better than nothing, right?
