“I’m rather fond of JixiPix apps in general, although there are some, like Fold Defy and Chalkspiration (covered back in May), that are so specialized as to be essentially useless. On the other hand, today’s app, Artoon, performs a task that I frequently wish to use in my artwork: creating a simple, flat image that is useful as part of a piece using several apps or all by itself.

Like most JixiPix apps, Artoon is a separate app for iPhone vs. iPad. I am using the iPad version, and have not purchased the separate iPhone app. The user interfaces will likely differ between the two devices, but the controls will be similar. Learning what the “Color Smoothing” slider does will help you, regardless of whether the user interface is the older standard JixiPix interface seen in this tutorial or the newer “gray” interface”.
