Pixelmator for iPhone? You heard that right. The company that makes the popular image editor, widely viewed as a Photoshop alternative, has announced that it will be launching a version for iPhone soon, making it a universal app.
That means current owners of Pixelmator for iPad will automatically receive the iPhone version when it’s ready at no extra charge. Moreover, in anticipation of that, Pixelmator has slashed the price of its iPad app in half to $4.99.
The app has been on iOS since last fall, with the launch of the iPad version, a smart move considering how much easier it is to edit photos on the tablet. But there was always something missing without an iPhone app.
Pixelmator has not released a launch date yet, but the fact that it’s already hyping the product suggests it should be arriving sometime soon. We’ve asked the company for an ETA and will update the story if we get further information.
