It appears that Microsoft is making a new version of its infamous Paint program that will be released as an app for Windows 10. The Paint program was a staple in Windows releases and certainly one of the most used native programs for PC. It was lightweight, offered basic editing features and quite fun to use. Having it as an app for Windows 10 is surely going to be a trip down the memory lane for many users who have grown up using Windows PCs.
The new app was first spotted by Twitter user WalkingCat, the app was named “Newcastle,” but the app page didn’t have any screenshots and only a description of the Newcastle football team.
Folks at MSPowerUser were able to download the app and they confirmed that it’s actually a new version of Paint that Microsoft is developing an app for Windows 10.
It’s said that this app has all of the basic photo editing features that the current Paint app has, except that it doesn’t appear to be just a Centennial app, it looks more like a native Universal Windows App.
Microsoft hasn’t said if it’s going to release this new version of Paint but if one were to guess, it could be bundled with the Windows 10 Anniversary update that’s due to arrive in a couple of months.
