Kaleidoscope Drawing Pad app review: get creative with your drawings 2021



Yes any kind of drawing counts as being creative, but how about you take those drawings and add in an extra dose of artistry? 

The best art apps for iPhone and iPad

The Kaleidoscope Drawing app for your iPod touch, iPad, and iPhone makes it possible by combining one of the most cherished children's toys and the ability to draw. It's not a traditional learn how to draw app. 

Instead of just a standard kaleidoscope this drawing app lets you make use of the many drawing tools and selection of kaleidoscopes to create some truly brilliant and stunning pieces. When you're done you can use this app for drawing to play back to you your sketches just like a movie.

Encourages Imagination and Fun

This is the kind of app that can be fun for any age group. It's all about encouraging the user to be creative and imaginative, all while having fun. I would hardly consider myself creative or any type of decent artist but with this app it doesn't matter.

You don't have to be professional or have experience in order to enjoy it and basically be entertained by it. All you do is paint on the drawing pad with the tools provided and then you'll be able to use a kaleidoscope mode.

When you're done be sure to play it back in "movie mode" for a truly unique experience. What's cool is that each drawing you make will have its own personal movie to go along with it.

In its last update a bigger canvas was introduced, users got additional modes to choose from, and you can import a photo and then draw on it. There is just one in-app purchase available priced at $0.99. The app currently has a very impressive 4.5 out of five stars from users.

The Specifics

Taking a look at the specifics of the app, there are eight different kaleidoscope modes to choose from, over 10 brushes that offer different effects, and all kinds of bright colors.

You can even use the random color selector so you never know what you'll get next. When you launch the app you will need to choose your game mode; each are fun so you really can’t go wrong.

I do wish that some of the controls had a bit of an explanation so you knew what you were doing but before long you’ll get the hang of it.

The app of course uses touch functionality for you to create these drawings and it is extremely responsive and quick, making it easier for you to create your pictures.
