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.

Ok just downloaded this app simply because I wanted to try writing on the iPad with a stylus but I quickly reLized that I had to recommend this app to all of my iPhone-using parents. The playback feature is amazing it allows you to go back and watch your Childs creative process in real-time or in a fast forwarded way. Truly amazing!

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.

Kind of lame


Why should a blank piece of paper be a pay option? Ok I forked the 3 bucks over , but my 6 year old still couldn't figure out how to change to the next blank sheet and neither could I.. Just upgraded it and it crashes on opening..
Don't bother downloading there's 3 or 4 better drawing apps .. This ones pretty lame. It's going into the ozone now
