  • Xee

    Grr… Why is Pixelmator iOS 8.3 only?!

    • Noohar

      Based on the App Store reviews you are not the only complaining about the fact that iOS 8.3 is needed.

    • Byron C Mayes

      Its distort tool requires Metal which is iOS 8 only, and if you can satisfactorily run 8.0-.2 you should be on 8.3 for the fixes and enhancements.

      If you’re using a device that can’t run 8.3, then you probably don’t want to use Pixelmator on it to begin with.
