Painter Mobile Review
Painter Mobile from Corel is one of the company’s first forays into the world of mobile apps. Painter Mobile is a diverse tool that will benefit both beginners and well-trained painters. Although the app works best with a large screen and a stylus, touch gestures can help even those painting with fingers on small screens achieve a beautiful result.
