Customer Reviews

Makes the simplest of doodles look like fine art.

Even if you care nothing for the math behind iOrnament, the great designs you can make with it should sell you on this fun app. I love everything about it; the explanation, the controls, the ease of use. I have made several embroidery patterns with this app and a quick walk through the gallery of designs people do should sell you on this program. The 99 cent pro upgrade is worth far more than that trifling sum. If you have one art app on your tablet it should be this one.

Great app

My interest in group theory and topology drew me to the app. I love that the app has both a tool for creating images AND a mathematical presentation. So wonderful!
The authors have a sensibility for the beauty and magic of mathematics!
