Digital artists may know Ambient Design’s ArtRage painting app for its engaging and somewhat non-traditional Mac and Windows desktop and iOS interface. ArtRage has now been released for the first time on Android, but only for Samsung devices.

Currently optimized for the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 and the new S-Pen, ArtRage for Android is now available as part of the Galaxy Gifts program as a free download for the Note 4 and Note Edge for a limited time in selected markets. For other Samsung devices, the app is available for $4.99.

The new Android version features familiar brushes for painting, drawing and sketching, such as the customizable Oil Brush, Watercolors, Airbrush, Palette Knife, Paint Roller & Tube and more. Other tools include various canvas and paint textures, stackable layers with blend mode and opacity controls, a tracing feature and reference images, and support for file sharing and image import and export.
