CONCEPT: A consummate collection of digital art tools.
DELIVERY: there are many digital art apps out there. This one I was actually shown by an enthusiastic student. What I think elevates this above a lot of other apps of its kind is that there is such a wealth of artistic tools available to users in one package.Your digital art drawer is full to the brim with pens, pencils, crayons, paintbrushes alongside things like stamps, stencils and more. Backgrounds can also be changed to a range of paper types or your own pictures.
All of these tools are contained within the drawer, which tucks nicely away at the side of the screens til you need it.The colours can be edited pretty comprehensively, from the use of multiple colours to creat rainbow effects to selecting precise tones from a colour wheel. You can even control opacity and store shades for quick access - the sort of options you don't always get from kids' art apps.
Talking of which, there's also the advanced options which actually allow you to tailor the distribution of ink/paint etc on your tool. With some practice, this allows for some impressively detailed effects. There's even a smudger tool to allow you to blend colours within your work Ina variety of ways.The app auto saves work to an album for review or editing, meaning accidental loss of art is less likely. Completed pieces can be exported via the usual channels or printed directly from the app.
Finally there's the bookshelf and store where a range of colouring giving books can be accessed for use in the app. It really is a full package and my own kids rarely choose another art app now as they can find everything here under one hood.
LIMITATIONS: The ability to digitally mix colours on a palette would have been outstanding. For more precision, a fine point stylus is useful.
CONCLUSION: One of the best art packages available for youngsters - a complete set of digital artistic tools.
