Ratings and Reviews
I have only just had a play with it for 30 mins and I love it. Thank you so much for all your dedication to this app, your attention to detail is impeccable and there is nothing I would add at all, well maybe except perhaps a video mode that records all the steps. Good one !!!
Polished like a mirror
In my opinion this is the keloidoscopic app that I've seen, because it is not only a great drawing with lots of bells and whistles, smoke and mirrors. It imparts some scientific knowledge on the subject to the user.
Great app for a beginner as well as all types of artists and crafty people, and good fun to boot. My Princess even loves it !
Thank you Jurgen for all the work that has gone into developing this not only fascinating but educational app. And Kudos to you for putting it on the app market at a very reasonable price.
