Delightful effect of chalk and crayon make this a wonderful art app. There are quite a few settings that will allow anyone to create really good work of art. We can choose a background image, put stock images or text on top of the board.
We faced some issues in moving and removing dropped images. The operation is not very smooth. Using wipes/duster near the area that is close to wipe/duster-stand can be tricky, as wipe/duster disappear if it too close. ‘Start from scratch’ option shows on app start. We had to restart the app to get access to this option. Hope these issues are address in next version.
Though the app does not have any educational content, the very act of creating art work stimulates a kid’s mind in right way. Various options make it a very powerful app to create wonderful works of art.
Nothing keeps a kids engaged like painting and sketching. Expect your kids to have lots of fun while indulging their creativity on this app.
We faced some issues that we have mentioned above. We hope these are taken care of soon.
There is very tight integration of Social Media with the game. Ideally it should not be so in games aimed at kids. These can be tucked away in a separate section for parent or allow a parent to control their access. Something to consider for next release.
