Earlier today, Krita just launched the first beta releases of Krita on Android and Chrome OS. Unfortunately for now it only works for Android tablets and the UI still has many desktop requirements so it may not work as expected, at least without a mouse and keyboard attached.
Details from the Krita website:
Thanks to the hard work of Sharaf Zaman, Krita is now available in the Google Play Store for Android tablets and Chromebooks (not for Android phones).
This beta, based on Krita 4.2.9, is the full desktop version of Krita, so it doesn’t have a special touch user interface. But it’s there, and you can play with it.
Unlike the Windows and Steam store, we don’t ask for money for Krita in the store, since it’s the only way people can install Krita on those devices, but you can buy a supporter badge from within Krita to support development.
- Krita on Google Play
- Alternatively, in Play Store, switch to “Early access” tab and search for org.krita. (See: Google’s official instructions on Early Access. Until we’ve got a reasonable number of downloads, you’ll have to scroll down a bit.)
- Supports: Android tablets & Chromebooks.
- Currently not compatible with: Android phones.
- If you have installed one of Sharaf’s builds or a build you’ve signed yourself, you need to uninstall that first, for all users!
Do to the limited number of Android tablets and the massive size of some Android phones, it’s unfortunate a phone release isn’t also available. Do keep in mind this is early access software, so expect all the bugs that come with that.
