This week, my pick of the week comes by way of a real-world situation. A friend of mine needed something like MS Paint that comes with most Windows PCs, but for the mac. This week, I’ve chosen a mac app called PaintBrush.
This is an app that looks, works, and feels a lot like MS Paint. I have been playing with this one and it’s really simple to use. Yes, you have GIMP and Inkscape (both of which are really good image editing apps). However, this app is really good for someone who just wants to have the same functionality that MS Paint does. You can draw freehand (as shown in the above screenshot), you can draw, rectangles, circles and basic lines (just like paint does).
True, it’s a very basic app, but if you basic is what you’re after, then PaintBrush is something you might want to check out. PaintBrush is free and available on the Mac.
