A lot or a little?

The parents' guide to what's in this app.

Ease of Play

The app's so easy to use there are no instructions, videos or tutorials. We got stumped only once, when trying to figure out how to stop the paper from spinning. (You have to tap on the white paper icon first, then apply a finger.)

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that this app version of the classic paint spinning wheel is easy enough for older preschool kids but will also be fun for older kids as they sit in the orthodontist's waiting room with nothing to do.

Is it any good?

Kids will love this app's easy creation of something spectacular looking. SpinArt is like a potter's wheel combined with a Spirograph, the '60s geometrical drawing toy. Flick to spin the blank canvas, choose a color and splat size, and apply the tip of your finger. Vary colors and pressure and voila, a finished piece that would look at home in a MOMA.
