Summertime's coming, get ready for drawing in sand on the beach...

"Sand drawings are elegant geometric patterns produced directly on the ground which serve to transmit a wealth of traditional knowledge about local history, indigenous rituals and cosmologies, kinship systems, natural phenomena or farming techniques." -

Drawing on sand, on the other hand, helps to relax and often brings a sense of pleasant and peaceful feeling. The simulated sand drawing effect on "Drawing on Sand" (as shown on screenshots) is probably one of the nicest available for iPhone or iPod touch. What's more, "Drawing on Sand" allows you to save the last hand drawn painting so that you can review "stroke by stroke".

"Drawing on Sand" dosen't limit you to drawing with your finger. You can also let the app produce elegant patterns like a "simple sand pendulum" does. Simply tap on the pendulum on the lower left corner, and it will move to the centre. You then drag the pendulum to a desired direction, release and watch as the pendulum sway and product the patterns.

Use "Drawing on Sand" to make your own Zen drawings right on your iPhone, anytime, anywhere. Or wouldn't it be sweet to "Sand" a heart to your valentine?
