You will create fascinating ornaments and intricate designs. Fun and challenge from ages 3 to 103. Interactive pop-up tutorial and many drawing tips included!
iOrnament is an app that is designed for drawing ornamental designs that are both artistically and mathematically fascinating. You draw simple strokes and the app repeats them over and over according to the rules of the 17 crystallographic wallpaper groups. By this, fantastic symmetric patterns are created. Kaleidoscope like pictures, tilings, complicated knots and artistic pavements are right at your fingertips. In addition iOrnament contains an interactive pop-up book that explains mathematical backgrounds on the theory of wallpaper groups and a sampler of classical ornaments from ancient cultures.
The design of iOrnament is based on extensive experience in interactive science exhibitions. Children of all ages love it as well as scientifically or artistically interested adults.

What's New in Version 1.5.2
Small fixes and improvements in button logics
and color selection.
One of the most inspiring apps I've ever seen. Awesome! Can't out it down. This makes it ridiculously easy to create dazzling designs.
My one complaint - no way to save more than a few designs for re-loading, and if you go to "save and load and it's full, and you try to click on something to make space, you lose your design. Please let me save more images!
- ability to change symmetry within same drawing (maybe on different layers?)
- mode for drawing perfectly straight lines
A total joy to use
It took a short amount of time to understand details of the interface and choices. I'd recommend just working through the various pages that come up when you touch the tip button, try what that tips explains for a couple of minutes and it's amazing how much better you can get at refining a piece. This is the most addicting art/drawing app I've ever had and I feel like I've barely touched the surface of what I can do with it.
Everyone becomes a creative artist with this!
This enables everyone to draw beautiful designs! There's also a huge opportunity that teachers should seize to train students about geometry, although my main interest is in the creativity this allows everyone to express with simple strokes. It creates beautiful pictures that can be used for artwork, including cards and posters.
