Heh, I posted this review around 4 AM EST (it is now 10 AM) - and it got kicked back I guess because of the PNG flower art I made (and attempted to attach) as an example of possible creativity with this application. So much trying to highlight the possibilities with this app. I will have it, though, in my YouTube video review.

I spent some time fooling around with the "brushes", which are really only preset colors - you do the actual line draw adjustments with the three control sliders below (tap the tiny "i" towards the top of the dialogue box to get clarification of what each control). Using those sliders to various extremes, I made the stylized rose that ended getting kicked back by Amazon, as well as seeing what could be done with photos (you can either Import or simply tap custom under the background). On the whole, kind of a neat art application that may open up some creative ideas, but in the end... a bit constrained in terms of flexibility.

The Undo function is especially laborious, and without an actual eraser option, you have a choice of the sluggish Undo or simply ... restarting from scratch. I had to deal with the Undo when making the flower portion of my picture, ensuring I did the entire thing without lifting my finger. Otherwise, tapping Undo, "Loading", wait, tap undo, "Loading" wait, tap undo... you get the idea. At least if I didn't care for the result, I only needed to tap Undo once and start the flower over. Same thing with the smaller leaf since I was seeing what refinement the brush sliders could offer.

That's about the gist of the thing. It did save the images directly to my gallery, and the Share option also included my Sketchbook Pro, which is nice. The files are saved as PNG, the high-resolution being 3.

4.0 out of 5 stars fun for doodling or making abstracts designs July 2, 2013
By CatChat

because of how this "drawing" app works, I would describe it more of a doodling app. the way each brush works, even drawing a simple line expands it out beyond what you draw with your finger/stylus. there are two modes of drawing included with this app: 1)touch-where the line you draw will stop from beginning to end, but still expands slightly on the sides, and 2) continuous-where what you draw will continue to flow out from all sides. you have the option to change the percentage of how far the expansion is depending on the type of line you are drawing (zig-zag, straight, or rainbow shape). there are several different "brushes" you can choose from, but since they are all basically the same with the exception of color it doesn't make sense to call it a change of the "brush". the another option you are left with is the background color. there is an undo (seems to be unlimited as to the number of strokes you can undo), and an option to save or delete the entire picture (not found in the same spots). there is an option to upload photos, with the option to upload from a computer, facebook, or a phone. I do have photo's in my kindle fire hd device, but they show up as an option to use for this app (unless I missed something, if I did I'm sorry). I didn't try to upload anything as you have to enter e-mail/facebookID/phone number, so I'm not sure how well this option works or not. the app description lists IAP's but I didn't see any of those, so this seems to be the full app (instead of a trial version that a previous reviewer stated). this isn't even close to "the best drawing app available" as one reviewer states (my choice is sketchmobile), but this would be a nice and simple doodle app for yourself or anyone with younger children who can't draw yet and enjoy making lines and swirls (or any age in between for that matter)

1.0 out of 5 stars It's a nice app but... June 16, 2013

I had to pay an extra $1.50 to use all the features. Very misleading to portray it as a paid app when it's really just a demo.. Also isn't up to date with the Google play version...

Cant trust an app which by its definition should not need billing access.
They can make two diffferent apps/ paid or adbased. but when you are already paying for it no need to my billing access.

3.0 out of 5 stars Half-Baked & Overpriced April 13, 2015
Verified Purchase
Flowpaper has an interesting concept: the lines you draw become waves in themselves. Unfortunately, that's about it. It might be fine for some time-killing doodling, but I doubt whether you'll return to it weeks or months later to create another "masterpiece".

There are 21 brush types (or rather wave types with different colour palettes) and 12 backgrounds types. The first choices are the "custom" ones, but I could not see what's the difference between the 'single' & 'multiple' custom brush; in fact, all 'multiple' choices appear to be the same, and it always reset to 'single' when I entered settings. Even using the 'single' custom brush, I found it hard to draw plain straight lines without any waves. There are two draw modes: touch & continuous, with the latter making bigger waves or so it appears. You can also adjust the brush length, brush flow (won't produce straight lines though), and brush opacity which, together, offer simple cosmetic variations but aren't really picture-changing tools if you'll excuse the pun. Regarding its core drawing/creation function, I cannot give it more than a rating of 4.

Although it says it has In-App Purchasing, I found no evidence of it inside the app. It could be a leftover from the "free" version in the Play Store which allowed people to upgrade to the "ad-free" version. As far as I could see, this Amazon version should be the full monty and without ads. It also asks for & uses the Internet to connect to some cloud server (Flurry perhaps?), but otherwise runs fine offline. Strangely, it also exhibited a delayed exit on my phone - it was pushed to the background as "cached" but *continuously* used the CPU for a good 5 minutes before finally clearing itself from memory altogether.
