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.

This a great little app in its own right, but I've been playing with it all day and can see all kind of uses for it. If you draw around photos of friends with a large black brush in Photoshop (or Paint) you can scan the images into the aquarium! I took a photo of my daughter in a swimming pose, scanned it and she found it hilarious! I'd like to use this in church as prayer wall - people draw a fish (or other simple shape) with the name of a person or country in the middle and voila - an interactive 'prayerium'. Well done Stripey Design!

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.

Great app for creative fun

Brilliant little app. My 5 yo has filled his scene with fish ,mermaids & submarines. It looks great and he has great fun drawing & photographing his fish. Not 5 stars as I would like to be able to 'populate' more than one scene. His sister would love to do her own. And as he gets older he would probably like to draw them afresh without having to delete the old ones.
