Is It Any Good?

The interface of PAINT SPLATTER is difficult to use and is missing many customary controls in art creation apps. Users are only able to choose, place, and size a variety of paint splatters, squares, and rectangles, and a few basic black shapes. Other than undoing past actions in reverse order, users are unable to edit anything. Each item placed in the artwork can be sized as it is placed, but no other aspect can be controlled, such as color or rotation. If your kids are particularly drawn to art made out of paint splatters, this app might be a good choice. Otherwise, your kids may be left wanting more.

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.
