It's a cute app and fun to play with for a few minutes but frankly if Adobe can't get this pro artist to pay for a subscription, an iOs app is never going to. Would I have paid a couple bucks for it? Probably, but there are many awesome apps in the same genre that don't require a commitment to a subscription and with enough scope to have significantly less chance of getting boring quickly. I also would never buy an app that won't show me what their "high resolution" output actually looks like before I make the purchase. I've been burned by that promise more than once over my many iPad-using years.

Developer Response

The high-resolution dialog allows you to zoom-in to the actual high-res image up to 100% and investigate up close in the app itself. To do this, you can tap on the whorl image in the high-res dialog to go to a full-screen zoom mode. Thanks for your feedback. High-res export is now included with a Pro subscription.

Cool and funky

Love this app! Let your imagination go and let the weird and funky roll. It’s great fun to just play and to see where your imagination takes you. When you’re ready to take a break, sit back and enjoy he animation. When you do create that stunning piece of art then you can order it on a product of your choice and hang it on your wall 😁


Absolutely love this app

❤️unbelievably great! Have decided to spend 30 days using this app only. Today is the fifth day, I don’t have enough words to say how much fun I’m having with it. Beautiful designs and animation. I will continue this review after the 30 days. Absolutely wonderful!
