First, grab a sheet of white paper and a thick black pen and draw a fish. Then colour it in however you like! When you’re happy with your fish, swipe down, and hold the iPad over your drawing. Watch as it magically comes to life! SquiggleFish is a unique experience for your child which encourages their imagination and creativity. Encourage them to create fish of all shapes and sizes. Make them colourful, use different materials and watch in wonder at the results . It’s perfect for children aged 3-7, and ideal for collaborating in groups. Each child can draw a fish and add it to a beautiful shared underwater world. To achieve the best results follow these simple tips: - Use a thick black felt pen. - Draw your fish with a complete, unbroken outline. No gaps! - Colour your fish in. - Use plain white paper and leave plenty of space around your fish. - Make sure you have plenty of light and there are no shadows over your paper. - Hold the iPad very still. If your fish is being silly and swimming backwards, tap it and click on the button on the bottom left. The button on the bottom right can be used to delete a fish.

Wonderful storage for my girls' fish drawings
My girls and I love this app. For a couple of years now they have been drawing pictures of brilliantly-coloured fish (and various other sea creatures) and scanning them into the Squigglefish aquarium.
It's brilliant that they have to do the drawing physically, but that their creations will then swim around the screen.
I'd like more functionality around all sorts of things - such as storage, background, movement speeds and behaviour - but it is already fantastic.
Nice idea but the app crashes when I try to photograph my drawing. I am guessing when you say optimised for iPhone 5 you mean it doesn't work in any thing else.
Find out why it didn't work, the camera was switched off as default. This seemed a strange setting as it requires the camera to work.
Kids and parents play together, drawing fish on paper and seeing them come to life, what's not to like? Fun app
