My kids love it! - My kids were literally "fighting" over it! They can't wait for their turn. My wife remarked we might have to get another iPad just for this app! - by nghh - Version 1.3 - 29 April 2010
My 3 year old loves this - I think the concept for the tools drawer is almost perfect. You select from a real array of crayons, pencils, paint brushes, paper, etc. My daughter especially loves the rubber stamps. It's one of the most used app in my iPad. My iPad wallpaper is always my little girls latest creation! - by Sonata369 - Version 1.3 - 20 April 2010
"Great for Kids" - My 4 year old loves this app and she has sent several created pictures to many relatives by using the built in email attachment. Great App! Very intuitive. - by Apascual97
My First Review After Many Apps ... - Well - I finally did a review after hundreds of apps.... I guess I never felt the need to praise an app so much. Let me start by saying that I am not an artist by any means. I can write with a pencil and a crayon but that's about the extent of my talents with such great tools...LOL. I got this app for my 6 year old thinking it would be a scaled down version of a real drawing app - boy was I wrong. I love this thing. I also own Alias Sketckbook Pro and Photo Artist and while those are great - this one is much FUN to use. I'm not sure what it is I like about it but I think it's that it reminds me of my childhood - when I used to draw with colored pencils and crayons so much. The presentation of the tools is what makes this so much fun. You feel like you have a real drawwer full of penciles, crayons and oils right next to you at you disposal. I have emailed the developers a few times asking questions and making suggestions for future updates. They answered my questions and thanked me for the feedback. Seems they are on the ball since most of my requestes are coming soon. They not only listen but they are way ahead of us, or at least me anyways...LOL. You can't go wrong for the price - beleive me - it's a blast. My son really enjoys the stickers and the createive brushes that allow you to paint with shapes. These guys knew FUN when they wrote this. I have a lot of apps and I always enjoy this one. They have some great features coming - so go ahead hit that "BUY" button - what are you waiting for - hey - it's more expensive noadays to pay a toll, buy a hamburger or see a movie - and the fun you get from this lasts much longer. That's my review and I'm sticking to it. John - by Masterjack - Version 1.3 - 25 April 2010
"Wow" - It's just so pretty, you just want to sit and look at it! - by CaliGirl159 - Version 1.3 - 20 April 2010
"Best children's drawing app" - If you have a 2-10 yr old, get Drawing Pad. My 4 yr old has spent hours drawing with this app and keeps finding new surprises. If you plan to travel with children this summer, get it. The developer obviously took his time to get this right the first time. Nice job! - by BackCountry717 - Version 1.3 - 15 April 2010
