I've tried your beta version with Android 4.0 tab (Toshiba AT270). Everything works cool except crop & stretch. App's got crash on those..
hope this would help you to fix the bugs....

Nice and useful app. I'm testing beta version right now.
One advice - never, absolutety NEVER turn on "Force GPU Rendering" in Android settings - it'll try to filter those pixels, which looks... well, let say "ugly" :p

Great app CraZyDecigames!

Currently trying out the beta and will reply.
Need any translation for free in Portuguese?

Would it be possible to set the animation as live wallpaper?

Nice, but...

Nice app! beta worked fine on all my devices, although without the ability to save with the beta app I found it to be useless to test. It did operate without errors but cannot say it would be flawless at saving images created within the app on any of my devices.

Thank you, deoki!

It would be very nice to have a translation in Portuguese!

I think this option will be exercised in the future. Could be as
separate live wallpaper application with the Let's 8 bit Art core.
