Pixelmator for Mac is now 50% off on the Mac App Store. Regularly listed at $29.99, the image editing and manipulation app is now available for $14.99. This is not only matching the best price we’ve seen on the app, but the first discount we’ve seen since the major OS X Yosemite overhaul. Along with its usual suite of enhancement tools and image effects, Pixelmator recently got a UI refresh inspired by Yosemite as well as “new features and technology” to support the new Mac OS.
Another feature added was something called Handoff Support, which allows users to “instantly switch” between Pixelmator on Mac and iPad. The recently released iPad version of the app is still available for $4.99 (Reg. $10) for another week.
