Saee loves to doodle. When it wasn’t on the Ipad, she would love doodling on just about everything from books to floor to wall. Now that we have the Ipad, it’s even better for her.
I downloaded two art apps. They aren’t necessarily meant for kids only. Anyone can use them and they are really versatile. You can create works of genius at the swipe of your finger. The only problem is that in the free version (the one that we have) the color options are pretty limited.
This app is much better quality-wise is what I feel. The resulting colors the smoothness of the final picture is much better, though in the free version you are limited to using the pen tool, the eraser tool and a couple of colors on your palette. Even then, this is what I could achieve in this app.
This is what Saee made with this app.
My husband made this doodle when he was exploring this app. The screenshot also shows you the tools available in this app. There is no button to ‘Undo’ what you created, but you can simply swipe your finger in a circular motion in an anti-clockwise direction to undo whatever you want to erase.
I am also posting some stuff that is available inbuilt sort of like a tutorial as to what you can achieve with this app. Bear in mind that I am not of the calibre to create art like this 😉
This app has more features than the Paper app. There is a brush tool, a pen tool, crayon tool, erase everything option, a wider color palette, but somehow I didn’t like the image quality in this. The kids won’t mind though.
This is my doodle art on Draw free app.

You also get free clip art. These are really fun for the kids.
You can also increase or decrease the brush size. Something that you can’t control in the free version of Paper. All in all many more tools, but less quality.
In my opinion, Paper is a better art app for Ipad. But the best part is, both are free!
Quality – 4/5

What are your opinions on these apps?
Here is a picture of an image as made by my friend Jayanti on the Paper app.
