A lot or a little?

The parents' guide to what's 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.

Drinking, Drugs & Smoking

What 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.

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.
