With the Finger-Painting app you'll be able to create the same type of results, have fun in the process, yet not worry about any mess. You are given a blank screen that looks like a piece of white paper and on it is a blob of paint that is red. If you want a new blob of paint, use the Reset button.

What's great is that the settings are always hidden away so you get to take advantage of the full screen. If you want to access the settings just tap on its icon on at the top of the screen.

The app is free to use but keep in mind if you want to unlock all the features and tools you'll need to purchase the full version of the app for $0.99. The app doesn't yet have a customer rating and requires iOS 8.0 or later to use. In the app's recent update there were some small bug fixes.
