Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
PaintByHand is a fun app for all ages to paint on the iPad with no mess. PaintByHand works like a traditional flipbook where you can keep all of your old artwork and flip back and forth making new creations.
Use your finger to swipe up and down and select a color, swiping sideways to change the shade of the color, select a brush thickness and start drawing. Artwork can be stored in the photo library, shared on Facebook, emailed from the app itself and submitted to the PaintByHand Gallery which is viewable at http://www.paintbyhand.com.
When you submit to the gallery, please include a first name and age of the artist along with a brief description of the art and selected works will be displayed on the website.
What's New in Version 4.2
We bought this app about 6 months ago but just tried it today. Yes, it is easy to use if you just want to use it to draw your own picture. But, if you want to color a picture, each picture is a separate in-app purchase. There is no way to buy them all in a bundle, and the app does NOT forewarn you that each page is another dollar. However; the most glaring problem with this app, is that when the child goes to color in the image, if the child does not color inside each line absolutely perfectly, the image's lines disappear. Suddenly, you have a headless ballerina, and a daughter in hysterical tears! The image Can't be made to zoom out to give your child a chance to color that way. You are just screwed. Take my advice, please, and just move on to any other app.
I was very disappointed to learn that a $.99 purchase allows only purchase of ONE picture under the "Coloring Shapes" icon! Nowhere does it explain that there will be additional charges per selection. A real rip-off and disappointment to my granddaughter when I wouldn't allow further purchases!
