Kid's Paint is a lot of fun-just beware of in-app purchases

I went looking for free painting apps for my new iPad. I found this set of brief reviews and links here

I would like to thank the author, Mustapha, for this set of reviews.

Anyway, I downloaded several of these apps to play with. I really enjoyed Kid’s Paint from Virtual GS.

The features I liked most are the ability to take a picture with your iPad and then play with it. (Figure 1). You can also import pictures from your Photo picture gallery.

With one finger, you can free draw. The color of the paint changes every time you touch the screen.

With two fingers, you get a line. Extend it out and you get a spectrum of colors.

With three fingers, you can clear the drawing and start over again.

This is a fun application for kids of all ages. Just one caveat. The app contains advertising for other games and apps. You may want to set your iPad in AirPlane mode (no Wi-Fi or cellular) before handing the iPad over to a kid. Tell the kid if they want to get an advertised app, they must ask their parents first.
