This Is Not an App

By Penguin Group USA

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.


If this is not an app, then what is it? With This Is Not an App, you’ll transform your tablet or phone into a place to stash secrets, a way to procrastinate, a spot to record dreams and memories, a living picture frame, a souvenir of the world, and more. Discover a world of possibility right at your fingertips, using fun drawing tools and over 50 ideas to inspire your creative process.

From the creators of Wreck This App comes an imaginative exploration into all the different things an app can be. Daily Candy calls the app “…a genius application from the mind-bending team behind cult-loved alterna-journal This Is Not a Book.” Based on the idiosyncratic favorite by author and illustrator Keri Smith, This Is Not an App “…offers perhaps that most elusive thing: a chance to be creative,” according to Wired Insider.

Customer Reviews


I think it's very unfair when people give an app one star and bring down its entire rating just because they can't figure something out. It's really not the apps fault.. Anyway, I love this app.

I'm a multimedia artist, musician and writer and this app is absolutely perfect for me. It's a great way for me to ease myself into art mode, and it helps me de-stress AND get my creative juices flowing again if I'm taking a break from a long recording session or a tedious writing assignment.

It's fun and stimulating enough that it's not boring - but it's not so overly involved & complicated that you don't want to engage with it when your mind is already active. And the option is there to take it a bit deeper and use it as a tool for self self-reflection. Definitely recommended for artists of any kind.

Looking forward to the next update!


I couldn't do much. I think it was a waste of my money.
