Pixelmator for iOS major update out today

You heard that right, Pixelmator for iOS just got an awesome major update! in Pixelmator 2.5, we’ve added a brand new, Files-based document browser, a new photo browser that makes it easier to browse and open images from your Photos library, and new image size presets along with a new browser.

A big step for Pixelmator for iOS

This update is a really big deal for Pixelmator for iOS. These new features might not be amazingly flashy but they’re incredibly important to the future of Pixelmator for iOS. And the headline feature is the awesome Files-based document browser, bringing a much-improved file browsing and opening experience along with great features like file search, tagging, and more.

Ever since the Files app was introduced, it was obvious it would be absolutely perfect for Pixelmator and we’ve been waiting for the right moment to replace our gallery with it. As we start working to refresh and update Pixelmator for iOS, this always had to be the they key first step in that process. And while it may seem relatively simple, this update actually took us around 6 months to design, develop, and test — a lot of work!

Today, we couldn’t be happier to be able to share this with you. The update is a free for all existing Pixelmator users and is available to download from the App Store right now.

That’s it for this round of major updates (we also recently updated Pixelmator Pro and Pixelmator Photo), next stop — more great updates and new features (of course!) and some new tutorials and other user materials over the coming weeks. Until next time!
