App description

This creative app provides a platform for users to make a digital drawing or painting using a variety of artistic tools etc. The user starts with a blank canvas, a photo from their camera, or a range of background textures and then uses their finger to draw on the canvas. They can adjust the stroke speed, colour and texture of their pencil or paint brush. They can also save their favourite tools to a personalised tool box. Once complete the canvas can be saved to their device and shared via text, email or social media (this function can be switched off in the devices general settings).

Reviewers comments

To use this app fine motor skills are required to swipe your finger across the screen to create a drawing or painting. Children of all ages (and adults) will enjoy the array of choices that are available in this app and it will give them a taste of what it is like to work in a digital creation program – which may encourage them to explore programs such as Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator.

About games and gambling

Most games contain elements of risk, chance and knowledge, that is why they are fun to play. There is growing concern about the impacts of simulated gambling games on the health and wellbeing of children. That's why we are identifying games that contain gambling elements on our site.

The State Government of South Australia's web site http://nogame.com.au/ contains information about these concerns.
