How does this work?
Clicking the “Test drive now” button launches a copy of this app on Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2), a web service that provides on-demand compute capacity in the cloud for developers. When you interact with the simulated phone using your mouse and keyboard, we send those inputs over the Internet to the app running on Amazon EC2 — just like your mobile device would send a finger tap to the app. Our servers then send the video and audio output from the app back to your computer. All this happens in real time, allowing you to explore the features of the app as if it were running on your mobile device.

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

Flowpaper is a useful Drawing app that makes Beautiful Flowing effects with many Styles and Textures to choose from. Even Non-Artists can Create some very nice drawings with Colorful and Fascinating Effects. It is User Friendly and has Options to Customize Paint Brush Style, Background Color and Draw Mode for TOUCH or CONTINUOUS style. You can Undo your last move at any time and Delete drawing to start over also. When you are happy with your Creation, you can Save or Share it. It also allows you to Import Pictures to work on as well.

Overall, a nice Creative tool for Novices or Pros. Fun and Easy to use with plenty of nice options.
Controls work nicely and No Annoyances of any kind that I have seen. The Special Effects type Graphics that you create with this are very Colorful, Pleasant and Uniquely Beautiful. This is Enjoyable to use and Gorgeous Graphics can be created by anyone easily. More of a pleasure than work to make COOL CREATIONS. I Recommend it to exercise your creative side!

5.0 out of 5 stars Lots of fun. July 2, 2013
By DHaron

This is a great app because it's not really dependent on your artistic ability. Anybody could make a great looking image on this thing and actually it's hard to make something look bad. From the screenshots in the app promo, it seems that you can get good at it and create some amazing images if art is your thing. I'm a big fan.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wheeeee!!!!! :)) July 2, 2013
By Jeanne
Yeah, this app is that fun! I played with it for literally 10 seconds, and created something amazing. And you will too!! :) I am not an artist in the slightest, this app just makes whatever you do look amazing. This is a really, REALLY fun doodling-physics app. TRY IT. Super simple to use. FUN!!!

I can't find the in app purchasing they mentioned in the app description. I clicked all the simple options and nothing was available for purchase. That was nice to not find :)))

Yes! Get this one while it's free today, and have fun mindlessly doodling when you have only a minute to chill out. I'm honestly not sure what I'd do with what I create, might try to print it for fun, but I find this app simply relaxing to play with and watch it evolve.

Definitely something I will keep on my Kindle Fire HD 7". I tried it on my HTC EVO 3D phone, it was pretty nice there too, but nothing like on a tablet size of a Kindle and screen quality of the Fire HD. I think you will enjoy it on your phone, but might have mixed opinions on whether you love it or not if you only use it on your phone. However on the Kindle Fire HD 7", it ROCKS, and visually would make a terrific tv ad for Amazon's Kindle Fire HDs. Amazon should buy this app and preinstall it on ALL future Kindles! (I'm a marketing person, so I mean that seriously, it would showcase the Fire HDs quite well)

I didn't pay attention to the price of today's free app of the day, but I would pay $3 max for this app. I own several apps that are kind of like next generation spirographs: Flowpaper, Gravilux, Geometrics, Tripping Fest, & Spawn 3D - I have tried all of these apps, and would definitely choose Flowpaper over the rest of them, though I do like Gravilux in second place, but it is not as beautiful as Flowpaper.

Well, time to stop writing, and get back to relaxing doodling with Flowpaper. I love this app!! Hope you enjoy this app too :)
