“A genius application from the mind-bending team behind cult-loved alterna-journal This Is Not a Book.”
- Daily Candy
“Made up of a string of open-ended prompts, similar to Keri Smith’s self-referential This is Not a Book, the app has no rules and merely offers a place for users to freely express themselves. It offers no utility, or functionality, or bird-killing entertainment, and yet still offers perhaps that most elusive thing: a chance to be creative.” – Wired Insider
“We gave the app a try and even during a busy day found it inspired a bit of creativity and freedom as we ended up doodling on nearly every page.” – Cool Hunting
“[D]elightfully cool.” – Comic Book Mom
From the creator of Wreck This App comes this ingenious exploration into all the different things an app can be.
With This Is Not an App, you’ll discover a world of possibility right at your fingertips. Guided by 50 prompts and using an array of drawing tools, you’ll transform your tablet or phone into a reminder system, a place to stash secrets, a way to procrastinate, a networking tool, a spot to record dreams and memories, a living picture frame, a souvenir of the world, and more. And when you’re done, you can easily share your imaginative results on Facebook and Twitter.
Based on the idiosyncratic favorite This Is Not a Book by author and illustrator Keri Smith, This Is Not an App asks, if not an app, what is it? The answer is up to you.

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!
