5.0 out of 5 stars Great App December 26, 2012
By Ben
Verified Purchase
I just got an 8.9 inch Kindle Fire HD for Christmas, along with a twenty five dollar gift card, and with this i decided to buy a drawing app. This app is amazing, when you first create a piece you can select from markers, papers, erasers, pencils, and paints, when you click on these it come up with a long list of colors/ textures. this is very user friendly and my little sister should even be able to use it with a little help. The texture I found on this was amazing, the tints and tones blend perfectly, and before you know it you have a masterpiece! The only problem I found in this app is even though I have the larger Kindle my finger alone isn't enough to give great detail to the art, so far I have only done partially abstract arts, which still look nice. I plan on buying a stylus to solve this problem. This is the best art pad I have ever seen and highly recommend your buying it.

5.0 out of 5 stars What I've been looking for for my kids December 9, 2011
Verified Purchase
We've tried out countless doodle apps, and after at least 5 or 6 we've finally found a winner!! This app is beautiful in its simplicity and versatility. It's got stickers, paint brushes (thin and fat...not adjustable size), crayons and coloring pencils every color you can imagine, markers, stickers, many colors of paper, a nice erasing tool, and more. I'm amused by doodling with it and my kids are too. I highly recommend to anyone looking for a great doodle app.

This is an amazing drawing pad! I'm amazed at the amount of tools available and how great they work. I always find myself wasting paper on sketches, and this app will fix that.

5.0 out of 5 stars Really Good Drawing App - Highly Recommended December 7, 2011
Verified Purchase
"Drawing Pad" is exactly what a drawing app for the Kindle Fire should be! It is easy to use, works as expected, and even includes fun "stamps" to liven up your drawings. Kids will love this, but it is also practical for drawing diagrams to illustrate ideas like furniture placement in building interiors or design suggestions for labels... the options are almost endless.

The brush choices include color pencil, magic markers, crayons, paint brushes, and also has a great selection of background patterns (paper), stamps, and stickers. You can also save or share the finished image to any app that accepts pictures (email, etc).

This is a very fun drawing app that is also easy to use for "real world" applications.

Highly Recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent drawing app! December 26, 2011
By Bill S.
Verified Purchase
This is an excellent drawing application. Both of my kids love to draw, and they love this application. Easy to use "drawer" for switching drawing tools. Easy to email the results on to family members to share the pictures the kids have created.

Must have app for families that have kids and own a Kindle Fire.

Very easy to use for a 6 yr. old. The only difficulty was getting to a clean page. Switching between colors, brushes, etc. was entertaining.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome app!!!!!! January 30, 2012
Verified Purchase
This app is AMAZING! I love all of the backgrounds, and the markers and crayons and even the colored pencils are awesomely realistic!! I am not in art class anymore, but this app keeps me in the arts and crafty mood. This app is one of the very few non-free apps that I would definately reccomend to anyone with a buck or two to spare, and its very much so worth the money!!!!! It is my all-time favorite app on my kindle fire!!

I have no answer, but the same problem seems to exist with the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 (Android 4.1.2). My kids love this on my phone (Samsung Stratosphere, Android 4.1.2).

I dont know the answers to your questions, but:
Yes, it is in English.
No, as far as I know there is no way to keep your grandson from going from the app to your home screen and settings. :) I hope this helped you :)
