Painting app alters photos in fun, educative ways.
A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this app.
Ease of Play
Accessing some tools is confusing at first but it's fairly easy to get up to speed. But the app really needs an unlimited undo. An eraser isn't enough to correct drawings consisting of more than a few strokes. We had to start over a lot.
Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this art app might overwhelm younger kids but is just right for tweens who like to experiment with photos.

An add to teach-what!?- or maybe to just shun society in racism-no?- to a whole new level?

Is It Any Good?
With this everything-but-the-kitchen-sink painting app kids can experiment with photos to their heart's content. There are dozens of stamps, overlays and special effects for tweaking photos with hats, thought bubbles and other funny objects. Mixed in with the kid-friendly stuff are quite a few high-end photo editing tools like layers, clone and eyedropper. It's an odd but winning mix.

Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
