Perfectly suited for younger children, the easy to use interface makes drawing fun and captivating. Fill out existing drawings with watercolors and crayons or start entirely new drawings with the pencil.
Every step of the drawing process is remembered, allowing the child to focus on being creative without bothering to save images. Later on drawings can be saved to photo roll, posted to Facebook or entire drawing sequence uploaded to YouTube for the ultimate in grandparent viewing pleasure.
Drawing Den can be customized for different skill levels and customizations are tucked away to not confuse the child, while readily available for the grown-up. Among other things you can allow or disallow drawing across lines and control how many colors should be available in the palette.
The application contains a free drawing of a cat, a face and a girl. Remaining 11 drawings and two blank pieces of paper can be unlocked with a single purchase.
What's New in Version 1.22
Dog drawing for those with unlock.
There are now 3 drawings available while still locked.
App OK, fun in want
The app is well executed, especially the added elements in recent updates. However, Drawing Den as a free app suffers from an imbalance between enjoyability and exploration of commercial potentials. A kid plays 2 hours with it, then there is nothing more to explore. (Unless you pay up.) There are other colouring apps with better balance, Colouring being a good example.
