Flowpaper by Diatom Studio is an interactive, physics based drawing app that allows you to use your finger as a tool to create unique paintings that almost look like they are floating! If you’ve already seen the screen shots, I probably don’t have to say too much about it. Those pictures speak for themselves. If you love to draw with amazing colors and effects like you’ve never seen before, Flowpaper is a must have app! Now I’m not much of a drawer, but I do love any app that lets me use beautiful formats and vivid colors! I may not be able to draw a piece of art, but I do enjoy making simple screen savers! The first one I made said, “Mr. & Mrs. Pitt”. P.S. That’s my fiancé’s last name. We’re getting married next summer! I wrote it as pretty as I could! What really made it stand out was the mixed colors and flowing effect! I love seeing that as my screen saver! I will admit that using Flowpaper to create words is not easy, and doesn’t look half as pretty as an actual drawing! However, it can be done! I had to play with the settings for a while until I got it to work!
Flowpaper allows you to choose your brush. There are 20 different brush options, as well as one additional option to customize a brush by the color(s) of your choice. You can control the percentage of length, flow and opacity on a scale. Simply drag the circle to the right for a higher percentage or to the left for a lower percentage. In addition to the many brushes, there are ten different background options! And, just like the brush option – there is one additional option to customize a background by the color(s) of your choice. The fact that Flowpaper has customizable options knocks this app up a peg! You can easily save any drawing you’ve created! You can also undo any mistakes you may have made, which I had to do so many times! Flowpaper is not only easy to use, but it’s also fun and extremely creative!
