Compatible with: iPad. Requires iOS 5.0 or later.
This app is great for young artists. Users can trace and draw characters from the app, take a photo of their drawing with their iPad and then see their drawing come to life as it is animated on the screen! Users will need colored pencils and paper for the drawing and tracing. The drawing process is well thought out by the creators, giving users step by step instruction. This app is fun and helps develop fine motor skills, creativity and expanded imaginations. This app is great for children and parents, too, who like to save their work as there is a parent mode that allows storage of “picture galleries” for up to four different users. Parents can send themselves e-mails of any outstanding art they’d like to quickly and easily share. This may just save some space on the refrigerator!
