Product Description


Kids Paint is a fun multi-touch painting program for kids. Whether you're a big kid or a little kid, this app allows you to create colorful drawings, paintings, and doodles on your Android device.

Surprise Creations

Kids Paint features randomized colors and brush sizes making for truly unique creations that will even surprise the artist themselves. Start by choosing your background color (including gradients) using your trackball or the menu choices. Try a black background for dramatic results. Then simply tap with two fingers to draw lines. Have fun watching the brush sizes and colors change as your creation takes shape.

Messless and Magical

With Kids Paint, there is no need for messy clean-up or wastepaper baskets overflowing with crumpled drafts. If you make a mistake, you can easily undo step-by-step by pressing the back button of your phone or tablet. If you want to start over altogether, just shake your device and your entire drawing magically disappears.

Photo Fun

You can also draw directly over photos in Kids Paint. Take a picture with your phone's camera and import the image directly to the app using the Search button. Now is the time to find out how you look with a thick green mustache or goofy rabbit ears. Share your creations with friends and family or save them to the album. Kids of all ages will have hours of fun painting, drawing, and doodling with Kids Paint.

5.0 out of 5 stars Oddly amusing.. October 14, 2011
By Gaston

I don't have children and simply got this app for the entertainment. The touch paint progams typically irk me because they lag or are real shaky, but this one is pretty solid. I like keeping it on the various brushes setting and writing little honey-dos for my husband then sending them to his phone.

Works great on Samsung Galaxy S.

2.0 out of 5 stars How basic is too basic? October 21, 2011
By RobertB

I'd have a hard time justifying this as a paid app, even for a buck. What it does is glitchy: try drawing a bunch of circles and watch lag build up until all you get are line segments. Bizarre behavior if you multitap, too. I'm keeping it for the grandbaby, but I'm glad it was free.

3.0 out of 5 stars Needs a designer with a kid October 14, 2011
Verified Purchase
Thanks for the free app! I like that you can select photos as a canvas for the drawing. I wish you could queue up photos- he gets impatient to select another.

I like that you can hit the backspace to undo a line. I don't like that too many backspaces clear the selected photos.

Also, there should be an option to disable the buttons so the app doesn't exit. The drawing itself is not multitouch. It doesn't change shape with speed.

1.0 out of 5 stars You cannot even set the line color. December 1, 2011

Easy to use,but too limited in functions. I bought autodesk sketch and uninstalled this one. You can teach kids to use the more functional program in a couple pf minutes.

5.0 out of 5 stars My grandson loves it! August 19, 2013
Verified Purchase
The fact that my grandson can sit quietly and play with this on my Kindle Fire and ask to paint with it when he comes over to my house is the best review I can think of. I got it when he was 5 and he is about to turn 7 and still enjoys it says a lot to me!

5.0 out of 5 stars black screen = ready October 14, 2011
Verified Purchase
Pretty awesome app, works great!

Very simple, perfect for small kids just learning how to use technology. I got this simply because I look forward to playing with this with my 3 mo old when she gets a little older.

Now to the obvious stuff. It's a paint program for kids. So when the app loads, as it says in description, it presents a blank black canvas. So when you see the banner and the screen goes blank, it's waiting for you to use it.

Also as the description says, the back key works as an undo, so when you see this black canvas and freak out about the app not working and start mashing the back arrow (why would you hit the back arrow anyway?), it won't do anything, cuz you haven't drawn anything.

Again, as the description says, when your ready to start over, shake the phone.

Really getting tired of these boneheads giving bad reviews because they won't read an apps description before downloading it.

5.0 out of 5 stars fun app October 14, 2011
Verified Purchase
This app is fun and simple and does what it says. Shake to erase, change background colors and patterns by moving or pressing the trackball/pad. I had fun adding colors to pictures I had taken, and just playing around.

There are not many options for drawing, but for a free app it is good. My daughter enjoys using it.

2.0 out of 5 stars no easy color choices.
Wish we could choose colors more. And stay with the color we could choose. To random and no different paint brush sizes.
