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.

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.

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...

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
Verified Purchase
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Something to soothe July 9, 2013
Verified Purchase
I found this soothing to fiddle with in off moments. It is like rubbing your finger through different colored finger paints and making designs.

The app has some very cool effects and it is kind of relaxing to be swirling your finger around but it's not like I was making any masterpieces.
